Description of key information

The potential for ethyl acetate to induce lung tumors in a mouse pulmonary tumor model was evaluated by Stoner (1973). A/He Mice received intraperitoneal injections of 150mg/kg or 750mg/kg three times weekly for eight weeks. The animals were sacrificed 24 weeks after the 1st injections and the lungs examined for lesions. Ethyl acetate did not produce an increase in mouse lung tumours compared with controls.
