Hayes52 also observed that rats and humans convert DDT to DDE, whereas rhesus monkeys totally fail to do so, amply substantiating the importance of species in the evasion of toxicity. 53 Differences in metabolism of animal models, and the extrapolation of toxicity data to humans, therefore, require extra caution. In fact, substances like pesticides vary in their toxicity, from slightly toxic to extremely toxic. Animal Gender Role of gender and metabolism of xenobiotics has been studied in a variety of experimental animals, particularly rats.
