- Other examinations performed: Clinical Observations and General Appearance: Animals were observed for clinical signs, mortality, until sacrifice.
Onset, duration and severity of any sign were recorded. The clinical signs and mortality observations were conducted at 10, 30, 60 minutes, 2, 4 and 6 hours on the day of dosing and once daily thereafter for 14 day. Daily observation was done as far as possible at the same time.
The observations were included general clinical signs, observations of eyes, mucous membranes, respiratory, circulatory system and behavior pattern.

Evaluation of Dermal Reaction: Dermal reaction was observed daily for study period of 14 days.

Body weights: Individual animal body weights were recorded pre-test (prior to administration of the test item), day 7 and at termination on day 14.

Gross Pathology: Necropsy was performed on animals surviving at the end of the study. Macroscopic examination of all the orifices, cavities and tissues were made and the findings were recorded. All animals surviving the study period were sacrificed by the carbon dioxide asphyxiation technique (day 15).

Histopathology: No gross abnormalities were observed in animals sacrificed terminally hence, no histopathology was performed.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
other: Not classified
Conclusions:
It was concluded that the acute dermal median lethal dose (LD50) of the given test chemical, when administered to female Sprague Dawley rats was considered to be >2000 mg/kg body weight. Thus, according to CLP criteria for acute toxicity rating for the chemicals, it infers that the given test chemical does not classify as an acute dermal toxicant. CLP Classification: “Not classified”.
Executive summary:

A study was designed and conducted to determine the acute dermal toxicity profile of the given test chemical as per OECD Guideline 402 (Acute Dermal Toxicity) in Sprague Dawley rats.

In the dose range finding study a single dose of 200 mg/kg body weight of the test item was administered to 1 female animal. No death or clinical signs of toxicity was observed during first 48 hours, hence, additional 1 female animal was administered with the dose of 1000 mg/kg body weight. Administration of 1000 mg/kg body weight did not reveal any clinical signs of toxicity or death during first 48 hours, hence, additional 1 female animal was administered at the dose of 2000 mg/kg body weight. Administration of 2000 mg/kg body weight did not reveal any clinical signs of toxicity or death during first 48 hours. As the dose range finding study revealed no mortality or clinical signs at the maximum dose of 2000 mg/kg, the main study was initiated with two additional animals. The animals were administered with a dose of 2000 mg/kg body weight in sequential manner at 48 hours intervals.Animals from dose range finding study treated at the dose levels of 200 mg/kg, 1000 mg/kg and 2000 mg/kg and animals from main study treated at the dose level of 2000 mg/kg exhibited normal body weight gain and revealed no clinical signs of toxicity or mortality during the study period of 14 days. Gross pathological examination did not reveal any abnormalities attributable to the treatment.It was concluded that the acute dermal median lethal dose (LD50) of the given test chemical, when administered to female Sprague Dawley rats was considered to be >2000 mg/kg body weight. Thus, according to CLP criteria for acute toxicity rating for the chemicals, it infers that the given test chemical does not classify as an acute dermal toxicant. CLP Classification: “Not classified”.
