The healthcare giant has faced lawsuits accusing it of hiding the cancer risks tied its talc-based version of baby powder since 2014.
The US-govt-sponsored study may help Johnson & Johnson's fight against 17,000 lawsuits contending that talc-based personal hygiene products cause ovarian cancer in women.
The company suggested that contamination of a lab, which it recreated in several of its own third-party tests, could have caused the FDA’s positive result.

Reuters investigation report on Johnson & Johnson talc powders was released in the US Friday. J&J has rejected the findings of the report.
