It should be noted that while benzene is considered a known hematotoxicant and leukemogen, the benzene exposed population from which the toxicogenomic biomarkers were characterized at this time only show hematotoxicity (U.
We evaluated transcriptomic and epigenomic data (epidemiological and clinical) in the range of environmental exposures for three chemicals: a) benzene and other leukemogens (McHale et al.
ACA and the other trade associations underscored the importance of "getting the science right," and that an incorrect scientific classification of formaldehyde as a known human leukemogen
could lead to undue public anxiety and significant, negative commercial consequences for companies that utilize this chemical.
Benzene is clearly a leukemogen
in adults (Schnatter et al.
BACKGROUND: Benzene is an established leukemogen
at high exposure levels.
Chromosome-wide aneuploidy study (CWAS) in workers exposed to an established leukemogen
Benzene is an established human leukemogen
(International Agency for Research on Cancer 1987), and exposure has been associated with various blood disorders (Smith 1996).
Cigarette smoking is associated with an increased risk of leukemia; benzene, an established leukemogen
, is present in cigarette smoke.
lagging), supposedly because of "dose wasting," is common in some research groups that apparently are not aware that the thrown-away dose may have stimulated the body's natural defenses (7) and thereby protected some members of the population from leukemia induction by other leukemogens
