Treatment of females continued for 5 hours per day, 7 days a week during the ensuing gestation (Day 0-20) and lactation periods (Days 5-21).
Species and strain of test animal, dose levels and route of test substance administration were established by the sponsors. Testing was conducted at Bio/dynamics, Inc., Mettlers Road, East Millstone, New Jersey 08873. Raw data will be stored in the archives of Bio/dynamics, Inc.
