oral: gavage
Vehicle:
other: Bi-distilled water
Details on oral exposure:
VEHICLE
- Concentration in vehicle: 0.2g/ml
- Amount of vehicle (if gavage): 10 ml/kg


DOSAGE PREPARATION (if unusual): The test article was placed into a glass beaker on a tared Mettler balance and the vehicle was added. A weight by volume dilution was prepared using a magnetic stirrer as homogenizer. Homogenicity of the test article was in the vehicle was maintained during treatment.

The preparation was made shortly before each dosing.

3 animals per sex. Only one dose (2000 mg/kg) was used.
Control animals:
no
Details on study design:
- Duration of observation period following administration: 14 days
- Frequency of observations and weighing: Mortality / viability: four times during test day 1 and once daily during days 2-15.
- Necropsy of survivors performed: yes
- Other examinations performed: clinical signs: Changes in appearance and behaviour were examined four times during day 1 nad once daily during days 2-15
body weight: Animals were weighed on test day 1 (pre-administration), day 8 and day 15.
Statistics:
No statistical analysis was performed as no deaths occurred.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
study cannot be used for classification
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
The LD50 of Read Across substance 1 (RA1) after single oral administration to rats of both sexes, observed over a period of 14 days was greater than 2000 mg/kg body weight.
Executive summary:

The Read Across test substance RA1 was evaluated for its potential to produce death following oral administration at a dose of 2000 mg/kg in male and female Wistar rats.

Animals were administered a single dose of the test substance on a mg/kg bw basis by oral gavage following fasting for approximately 16.5 hours, but with free access to water. Three hours after dosing, the animals were returned to their cages and supplied with feed and water ad libitum.

No mortalities or clinical signs were observed during the study and the body weight of the animals was within the range commonly recorded for this strain and age.

Based on these results, the medial lethal dose (LD50) of RA after single oral administration to rats of both sexes, observed over a period of 14 days was greater than 2000 mg/kg body weight.
