The toxicological monographs in this volume summarize data on the veterinary drug residues that were evaluated toxicologically by the Committee: diflubenzuron, ivermectin, sisapronil and teflubenzuron. Annexed to the report is a summary of the Committee's recommendations on these and other drugs discussed at the eighty-first meeting, including acceptable daily intakes (ADIs), acute reference doses (ARfDs) and proposed maximum residue limits (MRLs).
