some literature cases were reported various effects on sight
and hearing: in a study visual
disturbances have been associated with general excitation after
administration of 0.06 -4 g of Camphor; an appearance of flickering,
darkening, or veiling of vision accompanied noises in ear, weakness, and
convulsions were observed [*-10]. In another case was
association with Camphor and ulceration of the mucous membranes[*-5].
was also reported to be able to crosses the placenta and has been
considered implicated in fetal and neonatal death when camphorated oil
was mistaken for castor oil[*-4].
All of these findings were associated to
administration of drugs, Camphor, and are not sufficient to consider
substance as dangerous.
Nevertheless data are also not enough to
completely exclude any adverse effects; considering outcomes on fetous,
controlled studies on animals excluded these type of adverse results;
instead cosidering the observations reported on sight and hearing there
are not controlled studies available
on neurotoxicity that could confirm or not
confirm adverse effects.
In conclusion there are no sufficient data available
to consider substance as dangerous, but data are also not enough to
completely exclude any further investigations.
Furthermore note that is not clear how
these considerations are adeguate to L-Carnitineamide D-Champorated.
Any details about data available are
reported in the report attached at the point 13: Assessment Report.
