On the less favorable side, rats and mice have a relatively fast metabolic rate, can be stress sensitive, lack a gallbladder, have no emetic reflex, are able to produce ascorbic acid internally, and have CYP2C as their primary P450 metabolizing enzymes (compared to CYP3A in humans). Rats are also obligate nasal breathers and do not generally make a good model for humans with regard to inhalation studies. Their size can be an advantage or disadvantage, depending on what endpoint one is considering.

This last aim is not restricted merely to preventing withdrawal from sale: regulatory authorities may not approve new products (or permit extensions into new indications) if the safety profile is inferior to treatments already available. Even if they do, the labeling will reflect safety issues and may affect physician prescribing, and patient compliance is affected by adverse effects, even if they are not serious safety concerns. In summary, there are both tangible and intangible benefits of conducting high quality safety pharmacology assessments: prediction of up to 75% of clinical adverse effects, reduction of project failure during clinical development by up to 16%, reduction of product withdrawals by up to 25%, and improved product success through better patient compliance.
