Maleic anhydride was evaluated for toxicologic and/or carcinogenic effects in male and female Fischer 344 rats following dietary administration at levels of 100, 32, and 10 ag/kg/day. A control group received only the basal diet (Wayne Laboratory Meal). The criteria evaluated for compound related effects included: mortality, gross and behavioral signs of toxic or pharmacologic effects, body weights, food and compound consumption, clinical laboratory analysis (hematology, biochemistry, urinalyses), ophthalmology, neurological signs, organ weights and organ/100 g body weight, and gross and microscopic pathology.
