Subchronic 90-day feeding studies were conducted on four highly refined white mineral oils to determine any potential for toxicity in Long-Evans rats (20 per sex per dose level) and beagle dogs (4 per sex per dose level). Each oil was fed at dietary dose levels of 300 ppm and 1500 ppm (w/w). No treatment-related effects of toxicological importance were(More)
A total of 100 colposcopic biopsies from patients with abnormal Papanicolau's tests were surveyed for the presence of human papillomavirus (HPV) types 16 and 18 sequences by spot-blot hybridization. HPV 16 and 18 DNA sequences were detected in 58% of the biopsies. None of the cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade I (CIN I) contained HPV 16 while 50% of(More)
PURPOSE The "antilingula" is a term that is only used in oral and maxillofacial surgery publications. It is not found in anatomy texts. This paper examines the origin of the term "antilingula" and explores the literature to determine why there is a bony lump on the lateral surface of the mandible. METHODS The English literature was searched for references(More)
Charles River CD-1 mice were fed FD & C Blue No. 2 in the diet levels of 0.5, 1.5 and 5.0% in a long-term toxicity/carcinogenicity study. Each group consisted of 60 males and 60 females. Two concurrent control groups each of 60 males and 60 females received the basal diet. Maximum exposure was 23 months. No consistent compound-related or statistically(More)
Groups of 110 rats of each sex were exposed by whole-body inhalation to 0, 1000, 10,000 or 20,000 ppm (v/v) of hydrochlorofluorocarbon 142b (CFC 142b or 1-chloro-1, 1-difluoroethane) for 6 hr/day, 5 days/wk for 104 wk (ten rats from each group were killed after 52 wk) in a combined chronic toxicity and oncogenicity study. Concurrently, ten male rats per(More)
The effect of multiple administrations of sevoflurane was evaluated by several measures of toxicity. Cynomolgus monkeys assigned to a control group and three treatment groups were anesthetized with sevoflurane at 1.0, 1.6, and 2.0 times the minimum alveolar anesthetic concentration (MAC) for 3 h/day, 3 days/wk for 8 wk. Reductions in total erythrocyte and(More)
FD & C Blue No. 2 was fed to rats in the diet in a long-term toxicity/carcinogenicity study. The study included an in utero phase in which the compound was administered to groups of 60 male and 60 female Charles River CD albino rats at levels of 0.5, 1.0 and 2.0%. Two concurrent control groups, each containing 60 rats of each sex, received the basal diet.(More)
Four groups of 15 male and 15 female Sprague-Dawley-derived (CD) rats each were exposed to aqueous hexamethylenediamine (HMD) aerosols for 6 hr/day, 5 days/week for 13 weeks at mean analytical concentrations of 0, 12.8, or 51 mg/m3. Because of exposure-related deaths in a group of male and female rats similarly exposed to 215 mg/m3 HMD, this group was(More)
