Clinical signs:

Body weight:
Following exposure at 5.10 mg/L, slight to moderate body weight loss was observed in all animals on Day 1 which is associated with the restraint procedure during 4 hour exposure. Normal bodyweight gain was noted during the observation period for all female animals, the slight bodyweight loss was recorded during the first three days after exposure in males.
Other findings:
A single four hours nose-only exposure of E-Anethol to Wistar CRL: (WI) rats dosed at 5.10 mg/L followed by a 14 day of observation period, was not associated with any macroscopic findings.
