The mutagenicity of hydrogen peroxide was tested in the Ames test with S. typhimurium strains TA98, 100, 1535, 1537 and 1538 and E. coli WP2 strain. The test substance was found to increase the number of revertant colonies of S. typhimurium TA100 significantly, both in the absence and the presence of S9 metabolic activation. The test was negative in all other strains tested in the study. It was concluded that hydrogen peroxide exhibits mutagenicity to S. typhimurium TA100 in the Ames test.
