Food grade micronized silica gel (SYLOID®) was given in a feed to
B6C3F1 mice and Fisher rats at dose levels of 0, 1.25, 2.5, and 5% (≈ 0,
2,500, 5,000, 10,000 mg/kg/day for mice and 0, 625, 1,250, 2,500
mg/kg/day for rats) for 93 and 103 weeks, respectively (Takizawa et

clinical chemistry, post-mortem examination. There were no biological or
any other meaningful alterations in body weight, food consumption or
physical features of the exposed animals. No significant dose-related
effects were seen at any dose level upon clinical laboratory
examinations. The pathological examinations revealed no gross or
