Male and female Crl:CD(SD) rats were fed a diet containing rubber accelerator N,N-dicyclohexyl-2-benzothiazolesulfenamide (DCBS) at 0, 80, 600 or 4500ppm throughout the study beginning at the onset of a 10-week pre-mating period and continuing through the mating, gestation, and lactation periods for two generations. At 4500ppm, decreases in the body weight,(More)
