Levels of Evidence

Male Rats: Some Evidence
TypeOrgan/Tissue (Lesion)
Neoplastic Lesions
  • Nasal Cavity: adenoma, respiratory epithelium (0/49, 0/49, 0/50, 3/49)
Non-Neoplastic Lesions
  • Nasal Cavity: hyperplasia, respiratory epithelium; hyperplasia, glands, respiratory epithelium; hyperplasia, basal cell, olfactory epithelium; hyperplasia, olfactory epithelium; hyperplasia, glands, olfactory epithelium; atrophy, olfactory epithelium; metaplasia, respiratory, olfactory epithelium; degeneration, olfactory epithelium; necrosis, olfactory epithelium; hyaline droplet accumulation, olfactory epithelium; inflammation, chronic active
Other Considerations
  • Mononuclear cell leukemia: 21/49, 26/50, 23/50, 37/50
