Materials and methods

Principles of method if other than guideline:
BASF test:
Eight groups of 5 - 10 mice per dose were treated intraperitoneally with preparations of the test substance in 1 and 10 % aqueous traganth, respectively. Group-wise documentation of clinical signs was performed over the 7-day study period. Body weight was determined before the start of the study only, as it was needed for determination of dose. The clinical signs and findings were reported in summary form. On the basis of the observed lethality, the LD50 value was estimated or determined using a graphical evaluation of the dose response curve on probability paper.
GLP compliance:
no

Administration / exposure

Route of administration:
intraperitoneal
Vehicle:
other: 1and 10 % aqueous emulsion with traganth
Doses:
79, 126, 204, 316, 501, 794, 1260 and 2040 ml/kg bw (corresponding to 71, 113, 183, 284, 450, 713, 1131 and 1832 mg/kg bw). The 3 highest doses were administered with 10% traganth and rest with 1% traganth. Calculation to mg/kg bw based on density of the test substance (0.9 g/ml).
No. of animals per sex per dose:
5-10
Control animals:
no
Details on study design:
- Duration of observation period following administration: 7 days
- Frequency of observations: after 1 h, 24 h, 48 h, and 7 d
- Necropsy of survivors performed: yes
- Other examinations performed: clinical signs
Statistics:
LD50 was calculated according to Wilcoxon

Mortality:
The mortalities observed in 7 days were 0/10, 4/10, 6/10, 5/10, 5/5, 5/5, 5,5 and 5/5 in the 71, 113, 183, 284, 450, 713, 1131 and 1832 mg/kg bw dose groups, respectively. The mortalities observed in 24 h were 0/10, 0/10, 3/10, 2/10, 2/5, 4/5, 3,5 and 5/5 in the 71, 113, 183, 284, 450, 713, 1131 and 1832 mg/kg bw dose groups, respectively.
Clinical signs:
In the dose groups 79-204 ml/kg bw, animals were quieter than normal, no other symptoms were observed on the day of administration. Next morning, scrubby fur and sticky eyes were noted. In 316 ml/kg bw dose group, scrubby fur and fast breathing were observed on the day of administration. Next morning, scrubby fur, slight abdominal position in some animals and sticky eyes were noted. In 501 ml/kg bw dose group, scrubby fur, slight staggering and fast breathing were observed on the day of administration. Next morning, scrubby fur was noted. In the dose groups 794-1260 ml/kg bw, animals were quieter than normal, scrubby fur was also observed. In the 2040 ml/kg bw dose group, scrubby fur, staggering, slight abdominal position and intermittent respiration.
