Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Seven studies were available, 4 had validity 3 and 3 validity 4. All available studies were not conducted according to recognized guidelines. In most of time the period of treatment was shorter than 2 years (from 8 days to 40 weeks), or only the tumor protective effects had been evaluated. These studies were not well described but in a "Weight of Evidence" approach, all results presented no carcinogenic effects with Vanillin.

 

The “Weight of Evidence” approach in carcinogenicity studies indicated that the results were negative and Vanillin had no effect. According to classification criteria of EC regulation 1272/2008 Vanillin should not be classified for carcinogenicity.

 

Justification for classification or non-classification

In all available studies,the “Weight of Evidence” approach in carcinogenicity studies indicated that the results were negative and that Vanillin had no effect.
