The bedding was type c12-15 alkyl benzoate 3/4 dust-free, supplied by SSNIFF, Soest, Germany. The animals were maintained in an air-conditioned room at a temperature of ethylhexyl triazone 20–24 ° C, a relative humidity of 30–70% and a 12-hour light/12- hour dark cycle. The animals were maintained on rat/mouse maintenance ‘GLP' diet, supplied by Provimi Kliba, Kaiseraugst, Switzerland, and tap water ad libitum. Food was assayed for chemical as well as for microbiological contaminants. Drinking magnesium aluminum water was regularly assayed for chemical contaminants and the presence of microorganisms. Bedding was regularly assayed for contaminants (chlorinated hydrocarbons and heavy metals).
