    Abstract

    Three Groups of SPF Wistar rats were fed on radiation-sterilized, autoclave-sterilized and ordinarily autoclave-treated SPF food respectively. During 1½ years experimentation no significant differences between the groups were found with regards to general health, grow rate, feed consumption and reproduction performance. Mutagenic effects were not demonstrated either at autopsies or at a dominant lethal mutation test.
