Study Results & Research Projects Illustration

Reports: NTP is converting study reports into an electronic format which can be accessed from the website. These reports are made available as soon as they have been converted.

Data Searches: The NTP has been loading study information into databases and has developed applications to access this data from the web. There are two types of data mining searches:

  • All types of data - search provides a way to find the various types of studies conducted on a test agent and has options to mine that data if it is available in electronic format.
  • Bioassay pathology data mining search provides a way to access the pathology databases. It is also possible to search the historical control database and to view the Pathology Code tables used by the NTP

Pathology Tables for Peer Review: To inform the public in a timely manner, the NTP makes available information on the pathology, body weight changes and survival of completed 13-week and 2-year studies as soon as possible after the appropriate reviews of the data have been made.

Summaries/Associations: The NTP has put together sets of summaries and associations based on frequently asked questions by the public.

  • A listing of organ sites in which carcinogenic effects were observed in the 2-year rodent bioassay with links to the individual studies.
  • A search for studies with specific pathology responses that were used in determining the "evidence" for carcinogenicity (Levels of evidence).
  • A list of the NTP Technical reports with the "calls" of carcinogenesis.
  • A list comparing test results of Genetic Toxicity and Carcinogenicity.

New Areas of Research: These are special projects developed in response to requests from the public or other Federal and State Agencies for NTP to provide specific testing information. Also, new scientific investigations may be generated by advances in science and experimental technology.
