13-Week Toxicity Test on SCID Mice Carcinogenicity Test on BALB/c-nu Mice
  • Zero mortality, clinical symptoms not observed.
  • No change in weight or water consumption.
  • No significant hematological or serological change.
  • No particular change in urine and eye test results.
  • Sporadic variances in absolute organ mass and
    brelative organ mass were observed,
    but no histopathological issues were found.
  • Conclusion :
    No observed effect level is 2X108 cells/kg B.W
    [1X1010cells for a person weighing 60kg.]
  • No tumor was observed in a 25-week period.
