Annual Report for Fiscal Year 2018

Completed NTP Reports and Publications

The findings of NTP studies and research projects are published in four types of NTP reports.

  • NTP technical reports document long-term toxicology and carcinogenicity studies, generally of 2 years’ duration.
  • NTP toxicity reports document shorter-term studies, generally up to 13 weeks’ duration.
  • NTP research reports provide the results of research studies, rapid communications, and literature surveys that do not fall under the scope of the first two report series.
  • NTP Report on Carcinogens monographs are prepared for candidate substances selected for review. Each monograph consists of a cancer evaluation and substance profile to support NTP’s policy decision to list the substance in the Report on Carcinogens.

All published NTP reports are peer reviewed by experts who are screened for conflicts of interest prior to their service. In 2018, NTP completed three technical reports, three toxicity reports, four research reports, and one Report on Carcinogens monograph. Full citations for these reports are provided in an Appendix, and all NTP reports completed in FY 2018, and in prior years, are available on the NTP website.

Publications during FY 2018

NTP scientists published more than 250 journal articles and book chapters during FY 2018. Citations for these publications are provided in an Appendix.
