Additional information

There are no lifetime animal studies available on 9-decenoic acid, methyl ester (9DAME) in order to directly investigate its possible carcinogenic activity. However, 9-decenoic acid, methyl ester (9DAME) gave negative results in the in vitro genotoxicity studies and in a 90 day repeat dose study there was no evidence that 9-decenoic acid, methyl ester (9-DAME) was able to induce hyperplasia or pre-neoplastic lesions.

Justification for classification or non-classification

No carcinogenicity classification is warranted for 9-decenoic acid, methyl ester (9-DAME) according to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 based on evidence from genotoxicity studies and a 90 day repeat dose oral study.
