Number of dead animals/ number of tested animals
Chloracetamid was tested after single oral gavage
in female SPF-Wistar rats. Preliminary tests demonstrated higher
sensitivity in female animals. The rats were fasted for 16 hours before
and 2 hours after application. The animals were observed 14 days after
application and weighed weekly. Deadly poisoned animals were dissected
and assessed macroscopically; these animals showed impaired balance,
gasping breathing and bended posture. After the study period, surviving
animals were sacrificed and dissected macroscopically. No
macroscopically effects were observed. Chloracetamid had an LD50 of 138
mg/kg bw and is classified as moderately toxic according to W.S. SPECTOR
in the “Handbook of Toxicology”.
