Entry term(s) tests de carcinogenicidad
tests de tumorigenenicidad
Scope note: Pruebas para medir experimentalmente la potencia de producción de un tumor/producción de células cancerosas de un agente después de su administración (ejemplo, benzantracenos) y observar la cantidad de tumores o la transformación celular que se desarrolla en un período de tiempo dado. Se determina generalmente el valor de la carcinogenicidad como los miligramos del agente administrado por tumor desarrollado. Aunque esta prueba difiere de las PRUEBAS DE MUTAGENICIDAD del microsoma bacteriano y de la reparación del ADN, los investigadores a menudo tratan de correlacionar los hallazgos de los valores de carcinogenicidad y de mutagenicidad.

Scope note: Tests to experimentally measure the tumor-producing/cancer cell-producing potency of an agent by administering the agent (e.g., benzanthracenes) and observing the quantity of tumors or the cell transformation developed over a given period of time. The carcinogenicity value is usually measured as milligrams of agent administered per tumor developed. Though this test differs from the DNA-repair and bacterial microsome MUTAGENICITY TESTS, researchers often attempt to correlate the finding of carcinogenicity values and mutagenicity values.
