Oral Toxicity Study in Dogs

Part 2 - Table 3


Sixteen male and 16 female dogs were assigned randomly to treatment with either a Vehicle Control or to one of three graded doses (8, 25, 75 mg/kg) of an investigational compound. Four dogs of each sex were assigned to each treatment group. Oral dosing by gavage was performed once daily, seven days a week, for a period of 12 consecutive weeks. Prior to treatment and again at Weeks 4, 8, and 12, blood samples were collected from the jugular vein of each animal following overnight starvation. Alkaline phosphatase levels (U/L) were assayed from the blood samples.
