Thanks for your reply on the carcinogenic study on baraclude. However, lung adenomas in mice were found at exposure 3 times those in humans. Is it still considered safe on humans at this low dose findings.
Response from Dr. McGovern
Animal studies are done to see any potential carcinogenic risk. These studies are reviewed by the FDA before a medication goes on market. In addition, there are no data in humans to date to suggest any carcinogenic concerns.
