Item description for Some Thyrotropic Agents (IARC Monographs on the Evaluation of the Carcinogenic Risks to Humans) by The International Agency for Research on Cancer...
This volume evaluates carcinogenicity to humans of 19 chemicals that are carcinogenic to the thyroid follicular-cell epithelium in rodents. These include some so-called anti-thyroid drugs (methimazole, methylthiouracil, propylthiouracil and thiouracil); some sedatives (doxylamine succinate and phenobarbital); and some other drugs including the systemic antifungal antibiotic griseofulvin, the diuretic spironolactone, and the antibacterial sulfa drugs sulfamethazine and sulfamethoxazole. Other chemicals are or have been used in agriculture as pesticides (amitrole, chlordane/heptachlor, hexachlorobenzene and toxaphene), in foods and cosmetics (kojic acid), in hair dyes (2,4-diaminoanisole) or as industrial chemicals (N,N-diethylthiourea, ethylenethiourea and thiourea). Five of the 19 chemicals (N,N- diethylthiourea, doxylamine succinate, kojic acid, methimazole and sulfamethazine) were evaluated for the first time. From the available epidemiological studies, there was no indication of excess thyroid cancer risk in humans exposed to any of these agents.
