Administration / exposure

Route of administration:
oral: gavage
Vehicle:
unchanged (no vehicle)
Details on oral exposure:
MAXIMUM DOSE VOLUME APPLIED: 2.47 mL/kg bw

DOSAGE PREPARATION: In the first and the second step of the study, the test item was administered by gavage under a volume of 2.47 mL/kg bw (corresponding to 2000 mg/kg bw, according to the density of 0.809 g/mL supplied by the Sponsor) using a suitable graduated syringe fitted with an oesophageal metal canula.
Doses:
2000 mg/kg bw
No. of animals per sex per dose:
6 female rats
Control animals:
other: historical control
Details on study design:
- Duration of observation period following administration: 14 days
- Frequency of observations and weighing: Clinical observations and mortality were recorded at 30 minutes, 1 hour, 3 hours, 4 hours, and then once daily for 14 days. Animals were weighed on Day D0 (just before administering the test item) and then on Day 2, Day 7, and Day 14.
- Necropsy of survivors performed: Yes; animals were euthanized with sodium pentobarbital on Day 14 and macroscopic observations were noted.

Results and discussion

Preliminary study:
Not applicable
Effect levels
Key result
Sex:
female
Dose descriptor:
LD50
Effect level:
> 2 000 mg/kg bw
Based on:
test mat.
Mortality:
No mortality occurred during the study.
Clinical signs:
A decrease or an absence in spontaneous activity (3/6), Preyer’s reflex (3/6), muscle tone (3/6), righting reflex (2/6), associated with an increase in salivation (2/6), a hypothermia (1/6), myosis (1/6), eyes partly closed (3/6), dyspnea (3/6) and piloerection (3/6) were observed. The animal recovered a normal activity on Day 7.
Body weight:
The body weight evolution of the animals revealed an absence of body weight gain on Day 2 versus Day 0. The body weight evolution was as expected from Day 7.
Gross pathology:
The macroscopic examination of the animals at the end of the study revealed a thickening and yellow coloration of the forestomach.
Other findings:
None

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The oral LD50 of the test substance is >2000 mg/kg bw in rats. Therefore it is not classified according to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 and GHS regulation. No signal word or hazard statement is required.
Executive summary:

In an acute oral toxicity study performed according to Guideline OECD 423 and in compliance with GLP, a single dose of 2000 mg/kg bw of the test substance was given by oral gavage to a group of 6 female Wistar rats. Animals were then observed for mortality and clinical signs of toxicity for 14 days.

No mortality occurred during the study. A decrease or an absence in spontaneous activity (3/6), Preyer’s reflex (3/6), muscle tone (3/6), righting reflex (2/6), associated with an increase in salivation (2/6), a hypothermia (1/6), myosis (1/6), eyes partly closed (3/6), dyspnea (3/6) and piloerection (3/6) were observed. The animal recovered a normal activity on Day 7. The body weight evolution of the animals revealed an absence of body weight gain on Day 2 versus Day 0. The body weight evolution was as expected from Day 7. The macroscopic examination of the animals at the end of the study revealed a thickening and yellow coloration of the forestomach.

Therefore, the oral LD50 of the test substance is >2000 mg/kg bw in rats. Therefore it is not classified according to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 and GHS regulation. No signal word or hazard statement is required.
