IN-LIFE DATES: From: March 11, 2014 To: April 03, 2014

Administration / exposure

Route of administration:
oral: gavage
Vehicle:
unchanged (no vehicle)
Details on oral exposure:
MAXIMUM DOSE VOLUME APPLIED: 2.26 mL/kg bw

CLASS METHOD (if applicable)
- Rationale for the selection of the starting dose: Using available information on the toxicity of the test material, 2000 mg/kg bw was chosen as the starting dose.
Doses:
2000 mg/kg bw
No. of animals per sex per dose:
- Sighting study: 1 female/dose
- Main study: 5 females/dose (1 animal included from sighting study)
Control animals:
no
Details on study design:
- Duration of observation period following administration: 14 days
- Frequency of observations and weighing:
Clinical observations were made 0.5, 1, 2 and 4 h after dosing and then daily for up to 14 days. Morbidity and mortality checks were made twice daily. Body weight of each animal was recorded on Day 0 (the day of dosing) and on Days 7 and 14.
- Necropsy of survivors performed: Yes; on completion of the observation period, animals were killed by cervical dislocation and subjected to gross necropsy.
Statistics:
None

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
Rat Oral LD50 (females) > 2000 mg/kg bw
Executive summary:

In an acute oral toxicity study (limit test) performed according to OECD Guideline No. 420 and in compliance with GLP, one female Wistar (RccHan™:WIST) rat was administered a single oral dose of test material at 2000 mg/kg bw by gavage (sighting study). Following a sighting study, additional 4 animals were administered a single oral dose of test item at 2000 mg/kg bw (main study). Animals were then observed for mortality, clinical signs and bodyweights for 14 days and at the end of the study the surviving animals were sacrificed for macroscopic examination.

No mortality or clinical signs were observed. All animals showed expected gains in body weight over the 14 day study period. No abnormalities were noted at necropsy.

Rat Oral LD50 (females) > 2000 mg/kg bw

Under the test conditions, the test material is not classified according to the Regulation EC No. 1272/2008 (CLP) and to the GHS.

This study is considered as acceptable and satisfies the requirement for acute oral toxicity endpoint.
