Provides succinct summaries of the toxicological and residue data considered when evaluating each substance, identifying any potential hazards to consumer health, and allocating an acceptable daily intake and maximum residue limit. Veterinary drugs considered include a b-adrenoceptor-blocking agent (carazolol), seven antimicrobial agents (dihydrostreptomycin and streptomycin, enrofloxacin, gentamicin, neomycin, oxolinic acid, and spiramycin), a glucocorticosteroid (dexamethasone), and a tranquillizing agent (azaperone). The report concludes with a summary of recommended acceptable daily intakes and maximum residue limits for the substances under review.
