Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results (migrated information):
negative with metabolic activation
negative without metabolic activation

In conclusion, it can be stated that under the experimental conditions reported, the test item did
not induce structural chromosome aberrations as determined by the chromosome aberration
test in V79 cells (Chinese hamster cell line) in vitro.
Therefore, ucb 22060 is considered to be non-clastogenic in this chromosome aberration test
with and without S9 mix when tested up to the highest required test item concentration.
Executive summary:

The test item ucb 22060, dissolved in deionised water, was structural chromosome aberrations in V79 cells of the assessed for its potential to induce Chinese hamster in vitro in two independent experiments. The following study design was performed: without S9 mix with S9 mix exp. i exp. II exp. I exp. II Exposure period 4 hrs 18hra 28 hra 4 hra 4 hra Recovery 14 hra 14 hra 24 hra Preparation interval 18 hra 18 hra 28 hra 18hrs 28 hra In each experimental group two parallel cultures were set up. Per culture 100 metaphase plates were scored for structural chromosome aberrations. The highest applied concentration in the pre-test on toxicity (171 O pg/mL; approx. 10 mM) was chosen with respect to the current OECD Guideline 473. Dose selection of the cytogenetic experiments was performed considering the toxicity data. The chosen treatment concentrations are described in Table 2 (page 17). The evaluated experimental points and the results are summarised in Table 1 (page 10). No toxic effects indicated by reduced mitotic indices or reduced cell numbers were observed after treatment with the test item. In both independent experiments, neither a statistically significant nor a biologically relevant increase in the number of cells carrying structural chromosomal aberrations was observed after treatment with the test item. No increase in the frequencies of polyploid metaphrases was found after treatment with the test item as compared to the frequencies of the controls. Appropriate mutagens were used as positive controls. They induced statistically significant increases (p
