Abstract

A variety of short-term test have been developed to predict the outcome of carcinogenicity bioassays. Unfortunately, the majority of these do not address the issue of tissue-specificity. Tests that focus on tissuespecific responses such as the in vivo — in vitro unscheduled DNA synthesis (UDS) and S-phase synthesis (SPS) assays (Mirsalis, et al., 1985; Mirsalis, 1987) have been reasonably successful in the prediction of hepatocarcinogenic potential. The most widely used system employs hepatocyte cultures derived from animals treated in vivo (Mirsalis and Butterworth, 1980); however, systems for the kidney (Tyson and Mirsalis, 1985; Loury et al., 1987), pancreas (Steinmetz and Mirsalis, 1984), trachea (Doolittle and Butterworth, 1984), stomach (Furihata et al., 1984), and spermatocytes (Working and Butterworth, 1984) have recently been developed.
