Test animals

Species:
rat
Strain:
Wistar
Sex:
male/female

Administration / exposure

Route of administration:
oral: gavage
Vehicle:
water
Details on exposure:
The application volume was 10 mL/kg bw.
Details on mating procedure:
not applicable because it is a subacute study
Analytical verification of doses or concentrations:
no
Details on analytical verification of doses or concentrations:
The test item AAS-Loesung is a 48.8% solution in water. Dilution in water is therefore expected not to influence the stability of the test item. The stability of the formulations was declared by the sponsor as at least 8 days.
Duration of treatment / exposure:
29 days
Frequency of treatment:

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
No adverse effects on reproductive organs or tissues were observed in a subacute oral study with rats up to and including 1000 mg/kg and bw.
Executive summary:

In a repeated dose toxicity study in rats (Wistar, OECD TG 407) the substance was administered via gavage to 5 rats/sex/dose at 0, 100, 300, 1000 mg/kg bw in demineralized water for 4 weeks. Up to and including 1000 mg/kg bw no mortality, treament related clinical signs or other toxicological relevant effects occured. Neither gross pathological nor histopathological changes of organs, including the male and female reproductive organs (testes, epididymides, prostate, seminal vesicles incl. coagulation glands, ovaries with oviducts, uterus with cervix, vagina, mammary glands) were reported at any exposure concentration, including the limit dose of 1000 mg/kg bw. Overall, based on the subacute toxicity study there is no indication of a reproductive toxicity potential of AAS and the NOAEL for reproductive effects for male and female rats can be considered as 1000 mg AAS/kg bw.
