Explanation:
La traducción que propone Liz Askew y la referencia que da son muy buenas. Yo complementaría la traducción. Le quito la explicación, porque no es necesaria, si no está en el texto fuente. Quien tiene que leer esos textos sabe de qué se trata. "At 10 ppm" corresponde, como dice Liz, a una dosis de 10 ppm (partículas por millón); los síntomas que se observaron fueron aumento del peso del hígado (increased liver weight) y *abd*. Esta abreviatura se refiere a otro síntoma, que puede ser dolor abdominal. Se deja así pues es igual en español

Corrijo ***lapsus*** "dice "partículas" debe decir "partes"

ppm: partes por millón

La traducción que ofrezco no "suena" muy bonita, pero es el fiel reflejo del original. Es tan solo una anotación sin pretensiones de prosa. Un apunte para fines de observación y comunicación entre quienes saben de qué se está hablando.

Tengo que subsanar mi lapsus de anoche:
Parts Per Million (PPM)
A unit of concentration often used when measuring levels of pollutants in air, water, body fluids, etc. One ppm is 1 part in 1,000,000. The common unit mg/liter is equal to ppm. Four drops of ink in a 55-gallon barrel of water would produce an "ink concentration" of 1 ppm.
