Test animals

Species:
rat
Strain:
Sprague-Dawley
Sex:
male/female
Details on test animals and environmental conditions:
Five male and 5 female (nulliparous and non-pregnant) young adult rats of the Sprague-Dawley strain were used. They were 5-7 weeks old and weighed 178-232 grams on arrival. They were supplied by Charles River UK, Margate, Kent. The animals were allowed to acclimatise for at least 5 days prior to commencement of the study. The animals were housed multiply by sex in suspended polypropylene cages (dimensions 59 x 38.5 x 20 cm) with stainless steel grid tops and bottoms. Beneath each cage was a suspended tray lined with absorbent paper. Each cage was supplied with a water bottle and metal food hopper. Mean environmental maximum and minimum temperatures were 21°C and 19°C and mean relative humidity was 48%. A 12 h light/dark cycle was in operation (light hours 0700-1900 h) with I 5-20 air changes per hour. Rat and Mouse No. I Maintenance Diet, supplied by Special Diets Services Limited, I Stepfield, Witham, Essex, CM8 3AD was available ad libitum throughout the study except for a period of food deprivation overnight prior to dosing. Domestic mains quality water was available ad libitum throughout the study.

Administration / exposure

Route of administration:
oral: gavage
Vehicle:
unchanged (no vehicle)
Details on oral exposure:
The test material was administered orally in a single dose by means of a gavage. The dose was calculated based on the weight of the animal on the day of dosing and accounted for the specific gravity of the test material.
Doses:
2000 mg/kg
No. of animals per sex per dose:
5
Control animals:
no
Details on study design:
Following oral gavage dosing all the animals were checked for viability early in the morning and again as late as possible on each day. All the animals were examined for reaction to treatment. The onset, intensity and duration of any signs were recorded. Clinical observations were conducted frequently on the day of dosing and daily thereafter until sacrifice on Day 15. The body weight of each individual animal was recorded on the day of dosing (Day 1), Days 8 and 15. Following sacrifice the necropsy consisted of an examination of the thoracic and abdominal organs and tissues in situ. Carcasses were discarded following this procedure.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
practically nontoxic
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: expert judgment
Conclusions:
The acute oral LD50 value for vinyl neononanoate is > 2000 mg/L the Limit dose.
Executive summary:

This study conducted according to an O.E.C.D. Testing Guideline and the GLP regulations investigated the acute oral toxicity of vinyl neononanoate after a single oral gavage administration to Sprague Dawley rats. One group of 5 male and 5 female rats received 2000 mg/kg the Limit Dose. There was no mortality during study. Body weight gain was normal. No abnormalities were detected at necropsy.

Under the conditions of the study, the LD50 value of vinyl neononanoate was estimated to be greater than 2000 mg/kg in the rat.
