The oral administration of Chloramin B trihydrate
to rats by gavage for period of 90 consecutive days at dose levels 20,
60, 180 mg/kg bw/day produced no significant changes in functional
observations, ophthalmological examination and did not cause mortality.
Overall assessment of results showed, that the test
substance, after 90-day oral application caused reversible decrease in
body weight increments in both sexes (more marked in males) in all dose
levels. It was connected with reversible decrease of food consumption
and food conversion in both sexes.
Reversible changes of health status (piloerection)
and clinical changes immediately after application (excited behavior)
were recorded in both sexes of the highest dose level.
Haematological examination showed an effect on
leukocyte differential count in both sexes without dependence on dose
level. Portion of lymphocytes was increased and portion of monocytes and
granulocytes was decreased. In females of the highest dose level also
the increase of number of leucocytes and platelets was observed.
During biochemical examination of blood the
statistically significant changes were detected at the highest dose
level: increased value of urea in both sexes, increased value of
chloride ions in males, decreased value of AST, creatinine and potassium
ions in males, increased value of bilirubin and ALT in females and
decreased value of creatinine and sodium ions in females. Increase of
bilirubin was irreversible.
Statistically significantly decreased volume of
urine was detected in males especially at highest dose level. It was
connected with increase of specific gravity of urine. Increased value of
pH of urine was recorded in satellite males of the dose level 180 mg/kg
bw/day and females of the dose levels 60 and 180 mg/kg bw/day. Decreased
volume of urine accompanied by higher specific gravity of urine occurred
also in females of the dose level 180 mg/kg bw/day.
The most important histological affections were
diagnosed in kidneys of males of the highest dose level –hyaline
droplets in renal tubules and mesangial cell proliferation in renal
glomeruli. In the same treated group also the increase of incidence of
histiocytosis of lymph nodes and involution of thymus was registered.
In females the increased incidence of hydrometra of
uterus was found out in all treated groups irrespective of dose level.
The LOAEL (Lowest Observed Adverse Effect Level)
for males and females was established as 60 mg/kg bw/day. The changes however
were mild and did not indicate specific target organ toxicity. The NOAEL
(No Observed Adverse Effect Level) for males and females is 20 mg/kg
