In a combined repeated dose and
carcinogenicity study, the toxic effects of α-Methylbenzyl alcohol
was evaluated in B6C3F1 mice for sixteen days. The mice were
orally (gavage) exposed to the test chemical in a dosage of 0, 125, 250,
500, 1000 or 2000 mg/kg.Sixteen of 18 mice that received 1000 or 2000
mg/kg died within 3 days. A decrease up to 21% in body weight were
observed in male and female mice after treatment withα-methylbenzyl
alcohol. The results also showed no compound-related histopathologic
lesions were observed. Therefore, NOAEL was considered to be 500 mg/kg
when male and female B6C3F1 were orally exposed to α-methylbenzyl
alcohol for sixteen days.
