Germ Cell Mutagenicity: Acetone and tetrahydrofuran are generally thought not to
be mutagenic.                                                                   
A: General Product Information                                                  
In 2012 USEPA Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS) reviewed a two species  
inhalation lifetime study on THF conducted by NTP (1998). Male rats developed   
renal tumors and female mice developed liver tumors while neither the female
nor the male mice showed similar results. Because the carcinogenic mechanisms   
could not be identified clearly in either species for either tumor, the EPA     
determined that the male rat and female mouse findings are relevant to the      
assessment of carcinogenic potential in humans. Therefore, the IRIS review      
concludes that these data in aggregate indicate that there is "suggestive
of carcinogenic potential" following exposure to THF by all routes of exposure.
