/GENOTOXICITY/ Groups of five male and five female CD-1 mice received five daily oral gavage doses of approximately 0, 5, 10, or 20 mg aqueous chlorine dioxide/kg body weight. animals were killed 6 hr after the last administration, and 1000 polychromatic erythrocytes from the bone marrow of each animal were analyzed for micronucleus formation. In addition, groups of four male and four female CD-1 mice were used for analysis of chromosome aberrations from bone marrow samples. Animals were exposed to the same doses as above, either as a single administration or using a repeated-exposure regime. Following single exposure, animals were killed at 6, 24, and 48 hr post-administration and 50 metaphase cells taken from the bone marrow of each animal for analysis of chromosome aberrations. A negative result was obtained for micronucleus formation, and there were no increases in the number of structural or numerical chromosome aberrations (including an assessment of hyperploidy and polyploidy).
