Two hundred and twenty-eight years ago, the British physician, Percivall Pott, determined that there was an association between occupational exposure of chimney sweeps to soot in the chimneys they cleaned and the induction of scrotal cancer in these workers.

The standard rodent bioassays conducted by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) or by the National Toxicology Program (NTP) each require 600 animals per compound and require more than 2 years to complete. Each standard bioassay costs from $250,000 to $500,000 for skin studies and from $500,000 to $5 million for inhalation studies. This standard bioassay usually uses both B6C3F1 mice and F344 rats. This standard bioassay usually provides data at usually three doses, the maximum 1 tolerated dose (MTD), 21 the MTD, and 10 the MTD (or some other fraction of the MTD) to determine whether a dose–response exists and to obtain statistically significant results if a dose–response does exist.
