FinalStudyPlan1 copy 1.jpg

11 June 2015

Based on the valuable comments and input from various stakeholders -scientists, industry, Competent Authorities and Civil Society Organizations-, taking into accounts constraints in time, lab space (the number of animals we can house at the same time) and funding, the G-TwYST team decided to amend the original study plan with 5 major changes:

  1. to perform the original 90-day feeding trial with GM maize NK603 at an inclusion rate of 11 and 33%;
  2. not to perform the 2-year feeding trial with the GM maize MON810;
  3. to perform a further 90-day feeding trial with GM maize NK603 at an inclusion rate of 50%;
  4. to perform the original combined chronic toxicity/carcinogenicity feeding trial with GM maize NK603 at an inclusion rate of 11 and 33%;
  5. to analyze potential immunotoxic and endocrine effects in the 90-day feeding trial with GM maize NK603 at an inclusion rate of 11 and 33%.
