NTP to Consider 19 Chemical Candidates for the Next RoC

The National Toxicology Program has announced 19 chemicals to be evaluated for possible inclusion on or removal from the 12th Report on Carcinogens, scheduled for release in 2006. Up for consideration are a mixed batch of chemicals, plus agents that have previously stirred Proposition 65 controversy. The chemicals include chemotherapy agents, an herb, pesticides, monomers, and a natural toxin that has been found to make its way from weeds to honey. Seventeen of the 19 agents are under consideration for addition to the list.

NTP Poised to Add 7 Agents to RoC

In an announcement published in the Federal Register on November 6, the National Toxicology Program revealed a list of seven toxic substances that have passed through its three scientific review panels en route to likely inclusion in the 11th Report on Carcinogens (RoC), to be released in 2004. The announcement initiated a 60-day comment period, after which NTP will make its final recommendations.

The seven candidates have been under consideration by NTP’s three scientific committees, Review Group 1, Review Group 2, and the NTP Board Subcommittee. RG1 is the NIEHS Review Committee for the RoC. RG2 is the NTP Executive Committee Interagency Working Group for the RoC. It includes representatives from the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, U.S. EPA, the National Center for Environmental Health, the FDA’s National Center for Toxicological Research, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, U.S. OSHA, the National Cancer Institute, and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. The NTP Board Subcommittee is a subset of the NTP’s Board of Scientific Counselors, an external review group.

CERHR Issues Draft Report on Fluoxetine

In a move that brings it one step closer to triggering a Proposition 65 listing for the active ingredient in Prozac and Sarafem, the federal Center for the Evaluation of Risks to Human Reproduction has issued a draft monograph summarizing the developmental and reproductive toxicity of fluoxetine and fluoxetine hydrochloride. Not only are these medications widely prescribed, but the draft report comes hard on the heels of announcements that antidepressants and their metabolites are making their way through sewage systems into the environment.

The 147-page document, posted to the center’s web site on November 12, does not reach final conclusions about whether the chemical causes developmental or reproductive toxicity. Instead, it tabulates approximately 225 studies, describing each one, cataloging its strengths and weaknesses, and assessing its usefulness for the evaluation process. Final conclusions will be written by the agency’s fluoxetine expert panel, early next year.

Proposed Listing of Fumonisin Draws Food Industry...

OEHHA’s August 18 notice of intent to list fumonisin B1 as a carcinogen under Proposition 65’s authoritative bodies mechanism generated just two written comments by the October 8, deadline. 

However, those two comments reflected objections from a broad range of the U.S. food industry, from processors and manufacturers to grocers and restaurateurs—essentially the same heavyweight group that worked to forestall a previous listing of fumonisin back in 2000 (see Prop 65 News, September 1 &15, 2000). 

Under the authoritative bodies mechanism, OEHHA could now make its decision on fumonisin B1 with no further public interactions on the proposal. Industry objectors have asked that OEHHA provide an opportunity for further comment before making a listing decision.
