Abstract: A critical, detailed review of all available data useful in assessing the potential hazards to health posed by the presence of selected veterinary drug residues in foods consumed by humans. Toxicological data are collected and assessed in order to establish acceptable daily intakes for each of the drugs under review. Evaluations draw upon extensive data submitted to WHO by drug manufacturers as well as findings from the published literature. Separate monographs are presented for three anthelminthic drugs (closantel, ivermectin, and levamisole), two antimicrobial agents (benzylpenicillin and oxytetracycline), and two growth promoters (carbadox and olaquindox). Each monograph opens with a brief description of the drug, its properties, formulations, and veterinary applications. The most extensive section evaluates evidence of toxicity from studies of acute toxicity, mutagenicity, carcinogenicity, and effects on reproduction and development
