U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
Identifying potential human carcinogens in rodent bioassays has been a major focus of the testing strategy of the National Toxicology Program for decades. However, nonneoplastic diseases are also a major cause of morbidity and mortality in humans, and many of these are thought to have environmental causes. The NTP Nonneoplastic Lesion Atlas provides diagnostic guidelines for microscopic nonneoplastic lesions in rats and mice in order to improve the understanding of nonneoplastic lesions and their relevance to human environmental diseases.
