Table 1 Intracerebroventricular deferoxamine dose-tolerance chart

From: Heme oxygenase-1-mediated neuroprotection in subarachnoid hemorrhage via intracerebroventricular deferoxamine

ICV dose Total mice tested Tolerance
0.8 mg/kg (~0.02 mg per mouse) 3 Well tolerated
8 mg/kga (~0.2 mg per mouse) 3 Well tolerated
80 mg/kg (~2 mg per mouse) 2 Immediately died
  1. Wild-type mice were injected with a one-time intracerebroventricular (ICV) dose of deferoxamine diluted in normal saline, to test how well each dose would be tolerated
  2. aThe highest dose tolerated was chosen for all experimental procedures
