Chronic oral toxicity of a synthetic antioxidant, 2,2'-methylenebis(4-ethyl- 6-tert-butylphenol), in rats.

Abstract

Groups of 30 Wistar rats of each sex were treated with 2,2'-methylenebis(4-ethyl-6-tert-butylphenol) (MBEBP) in the diet at levels of 0, 0.03, 0.1 and 0.3% for up to 18 months. In both sexes, survival rates of treated groups were similar to those of the controls. Body weight gain was depressed (0.3% group in males, 0.1 and 0.3% groups in females). Slight… (More)
