Wild rose up the IARC ranks, becoming head of its Unit of Environmental Carcinogenesis when he was just 34. His only career foray out of Lyon, other than a years fellowship at the Netherlands Cancer Institute in the mid-1980s, came two years later, when he was offered the opportunity to become the first Chair of Molecular Epidemiology at the University of Leeds, in the UK. He stayed there between 1996 and 2008 - setting up the Leeds Institute of Genetics, Health and Therapeutics, and seeing his three children through their schooling. The academic setting was another world he says, but when the IARC directors job came up, he took stock. I suddenly realised my computer wallpaper was Lyon. The pictures on my wall were Lyon. It was clear where he wanted to be, and his wife, a neuroscientist, gave up a job in NHS clinical trials to come and share the new challenge with him.. Today, he highlights two priorities for IARC. The first is to improve cancer registries. People dont get very excited ...

An extensive literature survey on correlation of biomarkers resulted in the following preliminary conclusions: • No significant correlation between individual pairs of DNA adducts was found in a number of the 32P-postlabelling and immunoassay studies, indicating limited overlapping of the substrate specificity of the different DNA adduct methods. • Attempts to show correlations between a group of related DNA adduct structures and a chemically specific single DNA adduct structure by using the same type of methodology gave controversial results. These suggest the co-existence of both closely linked and independent metabolic activation pathways for complex mixtures of xenobiotics, and may also reflect differences in the kinetics of DNA adduct formation and elimination. • A larger number of studies revealed a positive correlation between DNA adduct levels in target and surrogate tissues than did not find a correlation. Correlation may depend on exposure dose and the metabolic capacity of the ...

Two presidential cancer advisers serving on a panel issued a report last week urging the federal government to do far more to protect Americans from various environmental cancer risks.. Available at the following link, the report concludes that the true burden of environmentally induced cancer has been grossly underestimated. One major area of concern cited was the tens of thousands of chemicals on the market in the United States that are carcinogenic. As an example, the report highlighted bisphenol A (BPA), which is found in many consumer products and remains unregulated in the United States, despite the growing link between BPA and various cancers. Other common environmental carcinogens mentioned include naturally occurring radon, and manufacturing and combustion by-products such as formaldehyde and benzene. Also cited as an increasing source of cancer-causing radiation was medical imaging, which now contributes 36 percent of the total radiation exposure of Americans.. ...

January 2017. DCM has been re-classified by IARC (IARC website) from Group 2B (Possibly carcinogenic to humans) to the next higher Group 2A (Probably carcinogenic to humans). This reclassification from 2014 has been published recently (Dichloromethane).In the opinion of ECSA the reclassification is not scientifically justified. IARC Monograph classifications are also questioned by other associations such as the American Chemical Council (ACC). However the IARC classification is of no regulatory relevance in EU as European legislation is triggered by classification according to the CLP (GHS) regulation (EC 1272/2008). ...

40 Although 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) was one of the most potent environmental carcinogen, mechanisms of action of TCDD at the molecular level are poorly understood. To enhance our understanding of carcinogenicity by TCDD, we investigated which genes are involved in TCDD-induced chemical carcinogenesis using two human liver cells, hepatoma HepG2 and non-tumorigenic fetal hepatic WRL68 cells. We found that TCDD (1nM) decreased HepG2 cell growth over 50%, but had no effect on WRL68 cell growth. We used DNA microarray to identify genes whose expression are changed at 24 hours after treatment with TCDD (0.1nM) in both of cell lines. We found that TCDD commonly down-regulated P21, sod1 genes and up-regulated hsp27, hsp90 genes, two fold or more. Moreover, TCDD (0.1nM) increased the levels of 8-hydroxy-2-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG), typical biomarker of oxidative stress, with time dependency in HepG2 cell, but just transiently increased the levels of 8-OHdG after 2 hours in WRL68 cell. ...

The results of the recent IARC Monographs evaluation of the carcinogenicity of opium consumption have now been published in The Lancet Oncology. This summary article presents the conclusions of IARC Monographs Meeting 126.. Opium, an addictive narcotic drug, is produced from the poppy plant, Papaver somniferum, and can be consumed as a variety of preparations, either by smoking or by ingestion. Opium derivatives (e.g. opiates such as morphine and heroin) and opioids (e.g. fentanyl) were not considered by the Working Group.. The Working Group evaluated opium consumption as carcinogenic to humans (Group 1) on the basis of sufficient evidence in humans. Opium causes cancers of the larynx, lung, and urinary bladder.. The full scientific assessment will be published as Volume 126 of the IARC Monographs.. IARC Monographs Volume 126 Working ...

The carcinogenic effects of individual polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) are well established. However, their potency within an environmental complex mixture is uncertain. We evaluated the influence of diesel exhaust particulate matter on PAH-induced cytochrome P450 (CYP) activity, PAH-DNA adduct formation, expression of certain candidate genes and the frequency of tumor initiation in the two-stage Sencar mouse model. To this end, we monitored the effects of treatment of mice with diesel exhaust, benzo[a]pyrene (BP), dibenzo[a,l]pyrene (DBP), or a combination of diesel exhaust with either carcinogenic PAH. The applied diesel particulate matter (SRM(1975)) altered the tumor initiating potency of DBP: a statistically significant decrease in overall tumor and carcinoma burden was observed following 25 weeks of promotion with 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA), compared with DBP exposure alone. From those mice that were treated at the beginning of the observation period with 2 nmol DBP ...

In the past few years, Hexavalent Chromium Cr(VI), a genotoxic carcinogen, has come under increased scrutiny as it is the most toxic form of chromium found
When present in soil, the oxidized forms of certain metallic contaminants (e.g., hexavalent chromium) are quite mobile and can be easily carried by waters percolating through the unsaturated zone. To avoid the excessive costs and risks associated with excavation, transportation, and disposal of the chromium contamination at locations such as Pantex, Hanford, and the Sandia National Laboratory, the Department of Energy (DOE) is testing the In-Situ Gaseous Reduction System (IGRS). In IGRS, the oxidized metals are reduced and immobilized. For chromium-contaminated sites, the primary chemical reaction involves the reduction of hexavalent chromium [Cr (VI)] to trivalent chromium [Cr (III)], with subsequent precipitation as a nontoxic, insoluble solid ...
Nickel is an occupational and environmental toxicant associated with a number of diseases in humans including pulmonary fibrosis, bronchitis and lung and nasal cancers. Our earlier studies showed that the nickel-exposure-induced genome-wide transcriptional changes, which persist even after the termination of exposure may underlie nickel pathogenesis. However, the mechanisms that drive nickel-induced persistent changes to the transcriptome remain elusive. To elucidate the mechanisms that underlie nickel-induced long-term transcriptional changes, in this study, we examined the transcriptome and the epigenome of human lung epithelial cells during nickel exposure and after the termination of exposure. We identified two categories of persistently differentially expressed genes: (i) the genes that were differentially expressed during nickel exposure; and (ii) the genes that were differentially expressed only after the termination of exposure. Interestingly, | 85% of the nickel-induced gene expression changes
This volume presents an evaluation of the carcinogenicity of benzene, updating with new data the most recent evaluation provided in Volume 100F of the IARC Monographs. Benzene, a simple aromatic hydrocarbon, occurs naturally and as a result of human activity, notably as a result of combustion, and it is a high-volume chemical now used mostly as a chemical intermediate. Human exposure to benzene is widespread through the air, in consumer products, and in industry. An IARC Monographs Working Group reviewed epidemiological studies, animal cancer bioassays, and mechanistic data to assess the carcinogenicity of benzene and conducted quantitative analyses of data on genotoxicity and human cancer risks.. ...

Many human carcinogens are environmental carcinogens, for example, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) from transformers. Other known carcinogens are tobacco smoke, aflatoxins (produced by moldy peanuts), sunlight (increase in malignant melanoma and squamous cell carcinoma), radiation, chemicals, dioxin, and benzene. Most authorities believe that the herpes viruses and papillomaviruses have a potential for producing cancerous changes. Patients with a history of certain diseases, such as hepatitis, have a higher incidence of liver cancer than patients without such history.. Normal cells have a mechanism to turn off cell growth with certain signals. In cancer, however, a change in the cells occurs so that they continue to grow. With a lack of control (switch does not turn off), the abnormal neoplastic cells continue to grow. The cell-surface antigens appear similar to the normal fetal types, so the body does not mount an immune response. The tumor stem cells have chromosomal abnormalities, ...
A recent article (1) attempted to estimate the false-positive rate for cancer epidemiology studies based on agents in International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) category 3 (agent not classifiable as to its carcinogenicity to humans) in the IARC Monographs Program. The estimation method used was based on the assumption that the IARC classification of agents about their carcinogenic potential (or any similar human endeavor at reaching consensus) provides a scientifically sound basis for assessing the false-positive rate in cancer epidemiology studies. Any such consensus effort uses classification criteria, and we critique the proposed false-positive rate estimation method because of potential biases induced by its reliance on the IARC criteria for assessing carcinogenic potential. The IARC criteria give epidemiologic studies epistemic priority in working group deliberations, and accordingly, the IARC category to which an agent is assigned will depend strongly on the percentage of positive ...
Particulate hexavalent chromium (Cr(VI)) is a potent respiratory carcinogen with widespread human exposure. The particulate form, for example lead chromate, has been determined to be the most toxic and carcinogenic form. These particles impact at bifurcation sites of the lung and persist in the respiratory tract. Chromosome instability (CIN) is a hallmark of lung cancer with cells exhibiting both translocations and severe aneuploidy. However, the ability of Cr(VI) to induce translocations is unknown. We exposed human lung cells to lead chromate for three sequential 24 h periods, each separated by about a month. After each treatment, cells were seeded at colony forming density, cloned, expanded and retreated. Each generation of clones were tested for their chromium sensitivity, chromosome complement and DNA repair capacity. We found that after the first treatment, lead chromate-treated cells exhibited a normal chromosome complement though a few clones showed an increase in relative survival. ...

Substances, mixtures and exposure circumstances in this list have been classified by the IARC as Group 2A: The agent (mixture) is probably carcinogenic to humans. The exposure circumstance entails exposures that are probably carcinogenic to humans. This category is used when there is limited evidence of carcinogenicity in humans and sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity in experimental animals. In some cases, an agent (mixture) may be classified in this category when there is inadequate evidence of carcinogenicity in humans and sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity in experimental animals and strong evidence that the carcinogenesis is mediated by a mechanism that also operates in humans. Exceptionally, an agent, mixture or exposure circumstance may be classified in this category solely on the basis of limited evidence of carcinogenicity in humans. Further details can be found in the IARC Monographs. ...
