As we do not carry out any biological studies of our products in vivo, we therefore recommend that you review the published literature for dosage guidelines.
To assist you in your product selection, we provide a brief summary of the biological properties of our products, together with some suggested reading (references) that you may find useful. Please note, that whilst this information is given as accurately as possible on our website, it may not always reflect the latest findings and is not exhaustive. It is intended as a guide only and we therefore recommend that you carry out your own search of the scientific literature for full details of the product's biological activity.
I found in the following artice, http://europepmc.org/articles/PMC2939157, that the elimination T1/2 for Ro 25-6981 is 5.1 hours for mice.
