Abstract

Male and female Fischer 344 rats were fed diets containing 0, 1.0, 2.0, or 5.0% titanium dioxide (TiO2) coated mica for up to 130 wk. This dosage regimen produced no consistent or biologically important changes in survival, body weight gains, hematologic or clinical chemistry parameters or histopathology. Under the conditions of this 130 wk feeding study there was no evidence that TiO2-coated mica produced either toxicologic or carcinogenic effects at dietary concentrations as high as 5.0%. The results suggest that dietary exposure to TiO2-coated mica does not pose a significant human health hazard.
