- Diet: ad libitum
- Water: ad libitum
- Acclimation period: minimum of five days

ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS
- Temperature (°F): 62-73

- Air changes (per hr): 10-15
- Photoperiod (hrs dark / hrs light): 12/12
Route of administration:
oral: gavage
Vehicle:
other: Auqa dest.
Details on oral exposure:
VEHICLE
- Concentration in vehicle: 400 mg/mL
- Amount of vehicle (if gavage): day 0: the test article was administered orally as a single dose using a ball tipped stainless steel gavage needle attached to a syringe.
Doses:
2243 mg/kg
No. of animals per sex per dose:
5
Control animals:
no
Details on study design:
- Duration of observation period following administration: 14 days
- Frequency of observations and weighing: 4 times (Prefasted Day -1, Days 0, 7, 14)
- Necropsy of survivors performed: yes
- Other examinations performed: euthanized (carbon dioxide inhalation); Body cavities (cranial, thoracic, abdominal and pelvic) were opened and examined.
Sex:
male/female
Dose descriptor:
LD50
Effect level:
> 2 243 mg/kg bw
Mortality:
Male: 2243 mg/kg bw; Number of animals: 5; Number of deaths: 0
Female: 2243 mg/kg bw; Number of animals: 5; Number of deaths: 0
Clinical signs:
Signs of toxicity related to dose levels:
No mortality occurred or significant clinical abnormalities.
Gross pathology:
Effects on organs.
No abnormalities were observed.
Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
No mortality occurred or significant clinical abnormalities were noted during the limit test.
Body weight gain was noted for all animals during the test period. No significant gross internal findings were observed at necropsy on study day 14.
Executive summary:

The short-term oral toxicity and lethality of hydroxypropylated .beta.-cyclodextrin was evaluated in Sprague-Dawley rats. A limit test was performed in which one group of five male and five female rats received a single oral administration of the test article at a dose of 2243 mg/kg body weight. Following dosing, the limit test rats were observed daily and weighed weekly. A gross necropsy examination was performed on all limit test animals at the time of scheduled euthanasia (day 14).

No mortality occurred or significant clinical abnormalities were noted during the limit test.

Body weight gain was noted for all animals during the test period. No significant gross internal findings were observed at necropsy on study day 14.

Under the conditions of this test, the acute oral LD50 of hydroxypropylated .beta.-cyclodextrin was estimated to be greater than 2243 mg/kg in the rat.
