Any other information on results incl. tables

Na3.NTA.H20 was neither embryotoxic nor teratogenic and
maternally toxic at either dietary level.
At 0.5%, there was a slight trend towards lower food
consumption as compared with control and 0.1 %-group
(P<=0.05 for F1-males and F0-females), but no significant
difference in food efficiency (body weight gain per food
intake). Slight retardation of growth was observed in parent
generations (F0 + F1), but not for male F0 and female F1
(therefore: tendency).
Conception varied from 86 (F2, at 0.5%) to 97% (F1,at 0.5%)
[control: 92 - 95 %]: Therefore, NTA-treatment had no
significant influence on fecundity in both generations.
At 0.5 % NTA, weaning weights were reduced in both sexes in
the 1st litter of F1 and F2, but not in the 2nd F1-litter
[Tab. 3]. Therefore, there is no but a slight trend towards
post-natal growth retardation.
In both generations, there were no significant differences
from the control in all reproductive indicators and the rate
of malformations and organ lesions.
