You are testing the drug onrats for a preliminary analysis. You have chosen four groups of rats from the laboratory rat–rearing facility,ensuring that they have the same age, history, and other characteristics.You give three experimental groups the drug, dissolved in saline solution and administered via injection.The first group receives a low dose, and the second, a moderate dose and the third a high dose. You givethe fourth group an injection of fluid without the drug. You feed these groups three times a day with anadjusted diet equivalent to a human being's intake of excessive calories, designed to simulate obesity-inducing food quantities.
