Handbook for Preparing Report on Carcinogens Monographs
In FY 2015, NTP released the Handbook for Preparing Report on Carcinogens Monographs, which was prepared by the Office of the Report on Carcinogens. The handbook provides instructions for conducting cancer hazard evaluations and preparing monographs on substances NTP is evaluating for potential listing in the Report on Carcinogens. The handbook is based largely on, and expanded from, protocols used to prepare the monographs. As a living document, the handbook will be updated based on lessons learned from preparing monographs and may also incorporate new systematic review tools and harmonize systematic review methods used by other scientists.
