It is thus on the basis that carcinogenic potential may be detected prior to human exposure that animals tests have been devised. The carcinogenic potential of environmental chemicals may be assessed by the use of a long term animal study involving the use of laboratory mammals. Such tests usually involve the exposure of at least three animal species to test chemicals by a number of routes of administration. Such exposed animals are then monitored over a period of at least 24 months and at autopsy for the induction of tumours in all tissues by a skilled pathologist.
