MATERIAL AND METHODS: Acute toxicity test,bone marrow cell micronucleus test,mice sperm abnormality test and30d feeding study were performed to study the toxicity of pollen pini. RESULTS: In acute toxicity test,male and female KM mice were fed with15g/kg dose of pollen pini,no toxic symptoms were observed.The results of bone marrow cell micronucleus test and mice sperm abnormality test were negative.In the30d feeding test,no obvious toxic effects were detected in clinical examination,blood tests,biochemical tests,organ weights and pathological examination in treated Wistar rats. CONCLUSION: Pollen pini passed the toxicological tests and deemed safe as a kind of health food.
