Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
not classified
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
Based on the observations the median lethal dose of the test substance is greater than 2000 mg/kg body weight
Executive summary:

In a GLP compliant oral toxicity study, performed according to OECD guideline 423, Wistar rats (2 groups of 3 females) were administered the test substance (2000 mg/kg bw) by oral gavage followed by a 14-day observation period. All animals survived until the end of the study period and no clinical signs, changes in body weights and macroscopic findings were observed. Based on the observations, the median lethal dose of the test substance in female rats observed for a period of 14 days was greater than 2000 mg/kg bw.
