Tóm tắt

The genotoxic potential of KOVIR capsules was investigated in vivo using the mammalian bone marrow chromosomal aberration test. Four groups of mice, seven in each group, were used in the study: Group I served as vehicle control; Group II received the positive control (cyclophosphamide 50 mg/kg; single dose; intraperitoneal route); and Group III to IV were given orally the KOVIR capsules, suspended in distilled water, at a single test dose of 2.16 and 4.32 capsules/kg, respectively. The obtained data disclosed the safety of KOVIR capsules, which did not show substantial genotoxic effects at either dose when compared with the vehicle group.
