Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
16 Dec 2009 - 05 Jan 2010
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: see 'Remark'
Remarks:
GLP-Guideline study, tested with the source substance glycerides, C8-18 and C18-unsatd. mono- and di-, acetates (CAS 91052-13-0). According to the ECHA guidance document ‘Practical guide 6: How to report read-across and categories' (ECHA, 2012), the reliability was changed from RL1 to RL2 to reflect the fact that this study was conducted on a read-across substance.
Justification for type of information:
refer to category justification report provided in IUCLID section 13

Details on test animals or test system and environmental conditions:
TEST ANIMALS
- Source: Charles River Deutschland, Sulzfeld, Germany
- Age at study initiation: young adult animals (approx. 9-10 weeks old)
- Weight at study initiation: 160-190 g, body weight variation did not exceed ± 20% of the sex mean
- Fasting period before study: animals were deprived of food overnight prior to dosing and until 3-4 h after administration of the test substance, water was available
- Housing: group housing of 3 animals per cage in labeled Macrolon cages (MIV type; height 18 cm.) containing sterilized sawdust as bedding material (Litalabo, S.P.P.S., Argenteuil, France) and paper as cage-enrichment (Enviro-dri, Wm. Lillico & Son (Wonham Mill Ltd), Surrey, UK).
- Diet: pelleted rodent diet (SM R/M-Z from SSNlFF® Spezialdiaten GmbH, Soest, Germany), ad libitum
- Water: tap water, ad libitum
- Acclimation period: at least 5 days

ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS
- Temperature (°C): 21 ± 3 (actual range: 18.4- 21.8)
- Humidity (%): 40-70 (actual range: 31 - 88)
- Air changes (per hr): 15
- Photoperiod (hrs dark / hrs light): 12/12

Administration / exposure

Route of administration:
oral: gavage
Vehicle:
polyethylene glycol
Details on oral exposure:
VEHICLE
- Concentration in vehicle: 200 mg/mL
- Amount of vehicle (if gavage): 10 mL/kg bw
- Justification for choice of vehicle: the vehicle was selected based on trial formulations performed at the testing labotatory and on test substance data supplied by the sponsor.

MAXIMUM DOSE VOLUME APPLIED: 10 mL/kg bw

CLASS METHOD (if applicable)
- Rationale for the selection of the starting dose: according to OECD guideline 423
Doses:
2000 mg/kg bw
No. of animals per sex per dose:
3
Control animals:
no
Details on study design:
- Duration of observation period following administration: 14 days
- Frequency of observations and weighing: mortality: twice daily; clinical observations: daily; bodyweight: Day 1, 8 and 15
- Necropsy of survivors performed: yes
- Other examinations performed: clinical signs, body weight
Statistics:
No statistical analysis was performed (The method used is not intended to allow the calculation of a precise LD50 value).
