Japanese term or phrase: GYAKUTAI SHIKEN (虐待試験)
The text refers to the analysis of a drug in a "gyakutai shiken" (虐待試験). A literal translation is "cruelty test", but this sounds a bit suspect to me. Any better suggestions?

English translation:Harsh Test
Explanation:
I'm not 100% sure - but from the context 'harsh test' could work. 'Gyakutai' carries the meaning of 'cruel, harsh, severe'.
