- Weight at study initiation: 164 - 178 g
- Fasting period before study: Feed was withdrawn from the animals at least 16 hours before administration, but water was available ad libitum.
- Housing: single housing in Makrolon cage, type III
- Diet: VRF1 (P); SDS Special Diets Services, 67122 Altrip, Germany
- Water: tap water ad libitum
- Acclimation period: at least 5 days

ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS

- Humidity (%): 30 - 70
- Air changes (per hr): approx. 10
- Photoperiod (hrs dark / hrs light): 12/12

IN-LIFE DATES: From: March 04, 2013 To: March 27, 2013

Administration / exposure

Route of administration:
oral: gavage
Vehicle:
corn oil
Details on oral exposure:
VEHICLE
- Concentration in vehicle: 200 mg/mL
- Amount of vehicle (if gavage): 10 mL/kg bw


MAXIMUM DOSE VOLUME APPLIED: 10 mL/kg bw

CLASS METHOD (if applicable)
- Rationale for the selection of the starting dose: Due to the chemical structure of the test substance acute toxicity was not expected. Thus a dose level of 2000 mg/kg bw was selected as starting dose.
Doses:
2000 mg/kg bw
No. of animals per sex per dose:
Group 1: 3 females
Group 2: 3 females
Control animals:
no
Details on study design:
- Duration of observation period following administration: 14 days
- Frequency of observations and weighing: Individual body weights shortly before administration (day 0), weekly thereafter and on the last day of observation. Recording of clinical signs several times on the day of administration, and at least once daily thereafter each workday for the individual animals.
- Necropsy of survivors performed: Necropsy with gross-pathology examination on the last day of the observation period after sacrifice by CO2-inhalation in a chamber with increasing concentrations over time.

Results and discussion

Effect levels
Sex:
female
Dose descriptor:
LD50
Effect level:
> 2 000 mg/kg bw
Based on:
test mat.
Mortality:
No mortality occurred in both 2000 mg/kg bw test groups throughout the study.
Clinical signs:
In all animals of the first 2000 mg/kg bw test group impaired general state and piloerection were observed at hour 1 and persisted in two animals until hour 4 or 5 after administration. Diarrhea was noted in one animal at hour 0 while cowering position was observed in all animals at hour 1.

Clinical signs in the second 2000 mg/kg bw test group revealed impaired general state and piloerection and were observed in one animal from hour 0 until hour 2 after administration.
In two animals of this test group no clinical signs were observed during clinical examination.
Body weight:
The mean body weight of the test groups increased throughout the study period within the normal range.
Gross pathology:
There were no macroscopic pathological findings in the animals sacrificed at the end of the observation period.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
not classified
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
Under the conditions of this study the median lethal dose of Didodecyl fumarate after oral administration was found to be greater than 2000 mg/kg bw in female rats.
