Quincy Bioscience, a leading research company committed to the discovery and development of calcium-binding proteins to support healthy living, is pleased to announce publication of safety assessment study of apoaequorin in Food and Chemical Toxicology, an international journal published for the British Industrial Biological Research Association.


The objective of the study was to investigate potential adverse effects, if any, of apoaequorin, in rats following subchronic administration. Based on the results of this study, the No Observed-Adverse-Effect Level (NOAEL) for apoaequorin was determined as 666.7 mg/kg bw/day, the highest dose tested. Administration of the apoaequorin preparation did not result in any mortality. There were no further clinical or opthalmological signs, body weight, body weight gain, food consumption, food efficiency, clinical pathology, or histopathological changes attributable to administration of apoaequorin.
