Description of key information

Ten female Wistar-rats were subjected to test acute oral toxicity. The test substance was administered by gavage at a dose of 5000 mg/kg bw.

No clinical signs of toxicity were observed. Faeces were yellow-coloured in all animals. Body weight development was not impaired. Animals killed at the end of the observation period showed no macroscopically visible changes. No animal died during the 14 day observation period, resulting in a LD50 > 5000 mg/kg bw.

The acute dermal median lethal dose (LD50) of the test item in the Wistar strain rat was found to be greater than 2000 mg/kg body weight.

Sex:

Details on test animals or test system and environmental conditions:
Five male and five female Wistar (RccHan:WIST) strain rats.
On receipt the animals were randomly allocated to cages. The females were nulliparous and non pregnant. After an acclimatisation period of at least five days the animals were selected at random and given a number unique within the study by indelible ink-marking on the tail and a number written on a cage card. At the start of the study the animals weighed at least 200g, and were eight to twelve weeks of age. The weight variation did not exceed ±20% of the mean weight for each sex.

The animals were housed in suspended solid floor polypropylene cages furnished with woodflakes. The animals were housed individually during the 24 Hour exposure period and in groups of five, by sex, for the remainder of the study. Free access to mains drinking water and food was allowed throughout the study. The diet, drinking water and bedding were routinely analysed and were considered not to contain any contaminants that could reasonably be expected to affect the purpose or integrity of the study.

The temperature and relative humidity were set to achieve limits of 19 to 25°C and 30 to 70% respectively. Any occasional deviations from these targets were considered not to have affected the purpose or integrity of the study. The rate of air exchange was at least fifteen changes per hour and the lighting was controlled by a time switch to give twelve hours continuous light (06:00 to 18:00) and twelve hours darkness.

The animals were provided with environmental enrichment items which were considered not to contain any contaminant of a level that might have affected the purpose or integrity of the study.

Gross pathology:
No abnormalities were noted at necropsy.
Other findings:
Dermal Reactions

Yellow coloured staining was noted at the test sites of all animals during the study. The staining prevented accurate evaluation of erythema in all animals one day after dosing.
Very slight erythema was noted at the test site of one female five to eight days after dosing. Crust formation and small superficial scattered scabs were also noted at this site. There were no signs of dermal irritation noted in the remaining animals.
Interpretation of results:
not classified
Remarks:
Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
The acute dermal median lethal dose (LD50) of the test item in the Wistar strain rat was found to be greater than 2000 mg/kg body weight.

Executive summary:

Introduction.  The study was performed to assess the acute dermal toxicity of the test item in the Wistar strain rat. The method was designed to be compatible with the following:


OECD Guidelines for the Testing of Chemicals No. 402 “Acute Dermal Toxicity” (adopted 24 February 1987)


Method B3 Acute Toxicity (Dermal) of CommissionRegulation (EC) No. 440/2008


Method.


A group of ten animals (five males and five females) was given a single, 24 hour, semi-occluded dermal application of the test item to intact skin at a dose level of 2000 mg/kg body weight. Clinical signs and body weight development were monitored during the study. All animals were subjected to gross necropsy.


 


Mortality. 


There were no deaths.


 


Clinical Observations. 


There were no signs of systemic toxicity.


 


Dermal Irritation. 


Very slight erythema was noted at the test site of one female. Crust formation and small superficial scattered scabs were also noted at this site. No other signs of dermal irritation were noted. 


 


Body weight. 


Animals showed expected gains in body weight over the study period except for one female which showed expected gain in body weight during the first week but slight body weight loss during the second week.


 


Necropsy. 


No abnormalities were noted at necropsy.


 


Conclusion.


The acute dermal median lethal dose (LD50) of the test item in the Wistar strain rat was found to be greater than 2000 mg/kg body weight.

Based on:
test mat.
Remarks on result:
other: no animal died within the observation period
Remarks:
The reported value refers to the source substance and was not converted to the target substance since (a) no adverse effects were observed and (b) the difference of the molecular weights of the target and the source substance is small (less than 20%).
Interpretation of results:
not classified
Remarks:
Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
The acute dermal median lethal dose (LD50) of the test item in the Wistar strain rat was found to be greater than 2000 mg/kg body weight.

Executive summary:

The study used as source investigated C.I. Pigment Yellow 1. The study results of the source compound were considered applicable to the target compound and were used for classification and labelling acc. to REGULATION (EC) No 1272/2008. Justification and applicability of the read-across approach (structural analogue) is outlined in the read-across report in section 13 or find a link in cross reference “assessment report”.
