TEST ANIMALS
- Source: Charles River, Sulzfeld, Germany
- Age at study initiation: approximately 8 weeks
- Weight at study initiation: 292 ± 13 g (mean ± SD, males); 199 ± 9 (mean ± SD, females)
- Fasting period before study: no
- Housing: animls were individually housed in labelled polycarbonate cages containing purified sawdust as bedding material (Woody SPF, supplied by B.M.I., Helmond, the Netherlands)
- Diet: standard pelleted laboratory animal diet (Carfil Quality BVBA, Oud-Turnhout, Belgium), ad libitum
- Water: tap water, ad libitum
- Acclimation period: at least 5 days

ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS
- Temperature (°C): 21
- Humidity (%): 50
- Air changes (per hr): approximately 15

IN-LIFE DATES: From: 12 Feb 1998 To: 26 Feb 1998

Administration / exposure

Type of coverage:
occlusive
Vehicle:
unchanged (no vehicle)
Details on dermal exposure:
TEST SITE
- Area of exposure: the test substance was applied to an area of approximately 25 cm² for males and 18 cm² for females, using a gauze patch measuring 5x 5 cm and 3.5 x 5 cm, respectively
- % coverage: approximately 10% of total body surface
- Type of wrap if used: the gauze patch was fixed to aluminium foil and held in place with Coban elastic bandage (with drops of petrolatum). A piece of Micropore tape was used for additional fixation of the dressings in females only.

REMOVAL OF TEST SUBSTANCE
- Washing (if done): residual test substance was removed using a tissue moistened with tap water
- Time after start of exposure: 24 h

TEST MATERIAL
- Amount(s) applied (volume or weight with unit): 2000 mg/kg bw (10 mL/kg bw)
Duration of exposure:
24 h
Doses:
2000 mg/kg bw
No. of animals per sex per dose:
5
Control animals:
no
Details on study design:
- Duration of observation period following administration: 14 days
- Frequency of observations and weighing: the animals were observed twice daily for mortality; clinical signs were observed at periodic intervals during the dosing day and once daily for the rest of the study period; the body weight was measured on Day 1 (pre-administration), 8 and 15
- Necropsy of survivors performed: yes, the animals were examined for macroscopic abnormalities

Results and discussion

Effect levels
Sex:
male/female
Dose descriptor:
LD50
Effect level:
> 2 000 mg/kg bw
Based on:
test mat.
Mortality:
There was no mortality during the study period (see Table 1).
Clinical signs:
other: Red staining of the neck fur (score 1 of 3) was observed in 1/5 females on Day 8-13. This is an effect that is frequently seen in rats under stressful conditions and is therefore not considered to be toxicologically relevant. No other clinical signs were
Gross pathology:
The necropsy and histopathological examination did not revealed any substance-related findings.
