    • What is the IARC classification of carcinogens?

      • IARC classifies compounds into four groups based on the available scientific evidence for increasing cancer risk in animals and humans. In 2019, IARC revised its classifications. The four classifications are Groups 1, 2A, 2B and 3.

  2. Oct 19, 2020 · IARC defines a Group 2B classification as “the agent is possibly carcinogenic to humans.” This category is used by IARC when there is only limited scientific evidence in human studies that a compound increases cancer risk in humans and when there is sufficient evidence of an increased cancer risk in experimental animals.

  4. IARC classifications of carcinogenic agents. Group. Description. Definition. Number of agents. Group 1. Carcinogenic to humans. Sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity OR. Evidence of carcinogenicity in humans is less than sufficient but there is sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity in experimental animals and strong evidence in exposed humans that the agent acts through a relevant mechanism of carcinogenicity.

  5. Group 1: "Carcinogenic to humans" There is enough evidence to conclude that it can cause cancer in humans. IARC definition and list of compounds Group 2A: "Probably carcinogenic to humans" There is strong evidence that it can cause cancer in humans, but at present it is not conclusive.
