Data on the carcinogenicity of furosemide
Frusenex (Furosemide) was tested for carcinogenicity when ingested on a single strain of mice and rats. A small but statistically significant increase in the incidence of carcinoma of the mammary gland was noted in female mice at a dose of 17.5 times the maximum permissible for human use. There was also a slight increase in the frequency of detection of rare tumors in male rats when furosemide was administered at a dose of 15 mg / kg (slightly higher than the maximum dose permitted for human use), but no 30 mg / kg was given.
