During 2007, the COM discussed the mutagenicity of mixtures focusing on evaluating interactions between mutagenic chemicals, and developing a staged approach for their assessment (reported in Toxicology and Regulatory News 2007, 46, 44 and 191). A draft discussion paper builds on this earlier work and presents, for comment, a brief review of published studies investigating the potential interaction between chemicals with regard to genotoxicity.
