The number of air changes per hour (ACH), an important index for individually ventilated cages (IVC), strongly affects the cage microenvironment and the health of laboratory animals. The objective of this study was to determine whether high or low cage ventilation adversely affects the health of mice housed in IVC systems and to identify cage ventilation rates suitable for the welfare of mice. We tested three different cage ventilation rates (40, 60, and 80 ACH)...
