Groups of male F344/Slc rats received 110, 450, 1820 mg/kg bw/day of KCl
in feed over a period of 2 years and were observed for clinical signs
and mortality and were examined for gross and histopathological changes
at the end of the treatment period (Imai 1961) The NOAEL was set 1820
mg/kg bw/day since nephritis was reported in all treatment groups as
well as in the control group. With respect to the observed gastritis
which is regarded to be a local effect a LOAEL(local) of 110 mg/kg bw/d
was determined (Imai 1961, UNEP 2003).
