Only limited information is available concerning whether a potential carcinogenic risk is associated with exposure to particles of nickel alloys. In a chronic study, Syrian golden hamsters were treated by intratracheal instillations to evaluate the carcinongenic potency of grinding dusts derived from stainless steel and particles from the mineral pentlandite, both containing nickel. Nickel powder and nickel subsulfide were used as reference materials.
