In the Merck Index..

Bitter dark tasting crystals.
Therapeutic Cat (Vet): Antiprotozoal (Trypanosoma)

It lists under mutagenicity studies:

Mutation Research Vol 48, p 103, (1977).
Environ. Mutagen Vol 3, p11 (9181)

Not looked them up so no idea what they say.

I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing noise they make as
they go flying by.
