Trioctanoin suspensions of manganese dioxide and manganese powder were injected im into inbred F344 rats and Swiss albino mice. The manganese powder was also administered orally to the rats. No difference in tumor incidence was noted between treated and control animals. In contrast, manganese (manganous) acetylacetonate administered im to rats produced a statistically significant number of fibrosarcomas at the sites of injection.
