Abstract:  This study examines the effect of combined melamine and cyanuric acid exposure in rats. Several different doses were given to rats and the effect on kidney function, blood values, and crystal formation in kidney tubules were examined. This study is designed to provide preliminary information for a longer-term rat exposure study which will be used to predict risk to humans following potential ingestion of these chemicals.
