The absence of dose relationship, along with no change in platelet counts, the nonadverse change in APTT, and all results falling within historical controls, leads to the conclusion that the changes are not toxicologically relevant.
Among these elements As, Cd, and Pb are toxicologically the most important but they were not present in the first two (easily exchangeable) phases with the exception of As.
Hexavalent chromium is more toxicologically active than trivalent chromium.
Cadmium is an "end of the road" heavy metal pollutant, bioavailable and toxicologically active.
OTA is one of the most common and toxicologically important naturally occurring mycotoxins produced by Aspergillus and Penicillium species.
Although statistically significant, neither the change in AP nor the change in PTT was considered to be toxicologically significant, as both changes fell within the accepted physiological variation for the strain and neither was proportional to dose.
However, decreased amino-trasferases have been documented to not have any toxicologically significant effects on liver, regardless of the mechanism involved (Hayes, 2007).
In conclusion, the present results showed that the methanolic extract standardized on flavonoids content of Byrsonima crassifolia possesses potential antidepressant-like effects in the FST in mice, and could be considered as relatively safe toxicologically with no deaths of mice when orally administered at 2000 mg/kg.
It also was toxicologically evaluated to meet the NSF/ANSI 51.4.1 (2009) standard for food equipment materials.
While minimizing the external radiation dangers of DU, a 1994 U.S Army Environmental Policy Institute study conducted in the wake of fears that Gulf War soldiers had been contaminated in "friendly fire" incidents acknowledged that "toxicologically, DU poses a health risk when internalized" and that "using DU on the battlefield poses potential environmental consequences." It ultimately recommended, however, further study and risk-management, rather than forgoing the use of DU altogether.
