Example text

At present, however, multiple mutations within a single cell seem the most reasonable way of explaining the induction of cancer. Just as the study of mutations may lead to increased understanding of tumorigenesis and cancer, the study of tumorigenesis and cancer epidemiology may provide researchers with an estimate of mutation rates within the human population. 3. Genetic Toxicology and the Bioassay of Chemical Compounds 27 demonstration of the occurrence of mutation (s) within the somatic cells of an organism and that these mutations must occur within specific genes, one could determine the average number of mutations needed to produce a transformed (cancerous) cell.

552e). It is beyond the scope of this work to critically evaluate each atmospheric measurement cited. The listing of two references to the detection of a specific compound is intended to serve as independent confirmation of that detection. If only one reference is given, however, the detection should be regarded as tentative. , 188t). Concentrations of compounds emitted from their several sources are not presented in these tables. Such concentrations are extremely dependent on the characteristics of the specific source being measured, on the proximity of the detector to the source, and on the techniques and methodology utilized for measurement.

The latter is obviously included in the former. However, readers interested in emission from residential fireplaces will find the subdivision useful. 6 Bioassay Information The intent of these columns is to provide a summary of reviewed and evaluated genetic toxicology bioassay data. Most of the summarized data was reviewed through the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency GeneTox Program. 4. The Tables 47 who need a summary of bioassay data and does not reflect EPA policy. Within this program, a panel of experts for each selected bioassay was convened by the EPA and this panel of experts reviewed the data, primarily information existing in peer reviewed journal articles.
