Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
No inhibitory effect on DNA-replication was detectable in animals treated with Sodium Acetate.
Executive summary:

The Testicular DNA-synthesis inhibition test (DSI test) was performed on male mice with Sodium Acetate. This is not a standard genotoxicity test system, but it provides evidence that acetic acid, sodium salt is not genotoxic in animals. The basis of the method is to measure 3H-thymidine incorporation. Animals receive a single oral dose by gavage at concentration of 200, 500 and 1000 mg/kg bw of test substance.
