Diethanolamine carcinogenic effect found in mice -- National Toxicological Program.

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

DIETHANOLAMINE CARCINOGENIC EFFECT FOUND IN MALE MICE in a two-year, vehicle-controlled study conducted in 100 mice and 100 rats by the National Institutes of Health National Toxicological Program. Results of the trial, reviewed by the NTP Board of Scientific Counselors' Review Subcommittee Dec. 9-10, revealed "clear evidence of carcinogenic activity" in all diethanolamine dosage groups in male mice, an NTP draft report abstract states. NTP reviewed diethanolamine and three of its esters -- coconut oil acid diethanolamine condensate, lauric acid diethanolamine condensate and oleic acid diethanolamine condensate -- at the request of the National Cancer Institute. Final reports on the ingredients are due in mid-1998; no significant changes to the scientific conclusions were made during the subcommittee's review.
