Report on Carcinogens

The Office of the Report on Carcinogens — headed by Ruth M. Lunn, Dr.P.H("/Rhythmyx/assembler/render?sys_contentid=54542&sys_revision=1&sys_variantid=1278&sys_context=0&sys_authtype=0&sys_siteid=&sys_folderid=" sys_dependentvariantid="1278" sys_dependentid="54542" inlinetype="rxhyperlink" rxinlineslot="103" sys_dependentid="54542" sys_siteid="" sys_folderid="") — coordinates one of the NTP's hazard evaluation activities. The Office of the RoC's scientific staff("/Rhythmyx/assembler/render?sys_contentid=54869&sys_revision=1&sys_variantid=1169&sys_context=0&sys_authtype=0&sys_siteid=&sys_folderid=" sys_dependentvariantid="1169" sys_dependentid="54869" inlinetype="rxhyperlink" rxinlineslot="103" sys_dependentid="54869" sys_siteid="" sys_folderid=""), with assistance from the RoC support contract staff("/Rhythmyx/assembler/render?sys_contentid=54869&sys_revision=1&sys_variantid=1169&sys_context=0&sys_authtype=0&sys_siteid=&sys_folderid=" sys_dependentvariantid="1169" sys_dependentid="54869" inlinetype="rxhyperlink" rxinlineslot="103" sys_dependentid="54869" sys_siteid="" sys_folderid=""), prepares the Report on Carcinogens  , a congressionally mandated report that identifies substances or exposure circumstances that may pose a hazard to human health by virtue of their carcinogenicity. Substances are listed in the report as either known or reasonably anticipated human carcinogens.

 

The Office of the RoC:

 

  • conducts cancer hazard evaluations of substances of potential concern
  • convenes scientific review meetings and workshops
  • prepares the draft RoC for submission to the Secretary, DHHS
  • serves as a scientific resource for information on environmental exposures and cancer hazards
