:In 1996 the IARC reevaluated carbon black as a Group 2B carcinogen (possible
human carcinogen). This classification is given to chemicals for which there is
inadequate human evidence, but sufficient animal evidence on which to base an
opinion of carcinogenicity. The classification is based upon the development of
lung tumors in rats receiving chronic inhalation exposures to free carbon black at
levels that induce particle overload of the lung. Studies performed in animal
models other than rats did not show any association between carbon black and
lung tumors. Moreover, a two-year cancer bioassay using a typical toner
preparation containing carbon black demonstrated no association between toner
exposure and tumor development in rats.
