Abstract
A method for inhalative exposure of minipigs to aerosols and gases has been developed. Minipigs are exposed via mask inhalation to the test substance using a computer-controlled exposure system that permits simultaneous exposure of groups of four animals in parallel to different controlled dose levels. We studied inhalation treatment of verapamil, a cardiovascular drug, and show good absorption and favorable pharmacokinetics when compared with in drug application. The results shown in this study encourage inhalation studies with the Göttingen minipig.
