  1. Carninogenicity of mercury and mercury compounds.

    Article - En anglais

    Mercury and mercury compounds are widely used in modern society, but only sparse data are available on their carcinogenicity.

    Methylmercury chloride causes kidney tumors in male mice.

    Mercury chloride has shown some carcinogenic activity in male rats, but the evidence for female rats and male mice is equivocal.

    Other mercury compounds and metallic mercury have not been tested adequately in experimental animals.
