    Question boy drop

    En un ensayo de fármaco en animales que murieron por dosis letal dice:

    "Adverse clinical signs included body drop and congestion of internal organs an appeared to be test-article related.

    ¿Se trata de decaimiento?

    Gracias por su ayuda

    PERDON POR EL ERROR EN EL TITULO: BODY DROP!!

    Yo pondría:

    abatimiento

    debilitamiento
    Los hombres son superiores a las mujeres porque Alá les otorgó la primacia sobre ellas. Portanto, dió a los varones el doble de lo que dió a las mujeres. Los maridos que sufrieran desobediencia de sus mujeres pueden castigarlas: abandonarlas en sus lechos, e incluso golpearlas.
    No se legó al hombre mayor calamidad que la mujer."


    El Corán (libro sagrado de los musulmanes, recitado por Alá a Maomé en el siglo VI)

    The strange thing is that I did a little searching to familiarize myself with what "body drop" means exactly and I came up with pickup trucks and professional wrestling...if "moonshine" could incorporate the term, then we would have the Holy Trinity of the Southern US all using body drop at some point.

    Carmen,

    To me, it suggests the middle section of the animal (body) was hanging (sagging or dropping) lower than normal. Possibly due to weakness from illness or increased weight from congested internal organs.

    I have to say I agree with ScottJ.
    I've also done some research, since I specialize in med and sci translations and I had never come across this term in my life.
    I've also found stuff about trucks and asphalt...
    My conclusion is that it's a bad translation from some other language into English.

    I wonder if it refers to a drop in body temperature. Does it appear anywhere else in your document?
