Reproductive toxicity study

Based on the data available from different studies, NOAEL for 2-Naphthalenesulfonic acid, 7-amino-4-hydroxy-3-[[2-methoxy-5-methyl-4-[[2-(sulfooxy)ethyl]sulfonyl] phenyl]azo]-8-[[2-sulfo-4-[[2-(sulfooxy)ethyl]sulfonyl]phenyl]azo]-, tetrasodium salt  (CAS No. 503155-49-5) was considered to be in range of 500-1500mg/kg bw/day for F0, F1 and F2 generation. When male and female CD rats were treated with test material orally. Thus, comparing this value with the criteria ofCLP regulation 2-Naphthalenesulfonic acid, 7-amino-4-hydroxy-3-[[2-methoxy-5-methyl-4-[[2-(sulfooxy)ethyl]sulfonyl] phenyl]azo]-8-[[2-sulfo-4-[[2-(sulfooxy)ethyl]sulfonyl]phenyl]azo]-, tetrasodium salt  (CAS No. 503155-49-5)not likely to classify as reproductive toxicant.

Executive summary:

Reproductive toxicity

Data available for the read across chemicals was reviewed to determine the reproductive toxicity of 2-Naphthalenesulfonic acid, 7-amino-4-hydroxy-3-[[2-methoxy-5-methyl-4-[[2-(sulfooxy)ethyl]sulfonyl] phenyl]azo]-8-[[2-sulfo-4-[[2-(sulfooxy)ethyl]sulfonyl]phenyl]azo]-, tetrasodium salt  .The studies are as mentioned below:

Study 1

Three generation reproductive study of test material was performed on male and female Charles River CD rats. Animals were housed individually and fed the test diet ad libitum. The test material mixed with food in dose concentration 0, 5, 50, 150 or 500 mg/kg bw/day and 10 males and 20 females/group/generation were used .Pre-Mating Exposure / Males and Females were 60 days. Clinical observations were recorded twice daily with at least 5 hours between observations. Detailed physical examinations and palpation for masses were performed weekly. Body weights and food consumption were determined weekly for the first fourteen weeks, bi-weekly for the next 12 weeks and every 4 weeks thereafter until the end of the study. The intake of the test substance was determined from body weight, food consumption and dietary concentration. Haematology tests, including haemoglobin, haematocrit, erythrocyte and total and differential leukocyte counts, and erythrocyte morphology, were conducted on ten randomly selected animals at months 3, 6, 12, 18 and 24 of the study. Necropsies were conducted on all animals dying prior to study termination, killed in a moribund condition or killed on schedule. Histological examinations were conducted on all animals from both control groups, the highest dose group (2.0 or 5.0%) from each study and also on 10 rats randomly selected from each group for an interim sacrifice at 12 months. Histology was also performed on any animal with gross lesions or masses. Also tissues examined included adrenal glands, aorta, blood smear, brain, cecum, colon, duodenum, epididymus or uterus, esophagus, eyes, femur including marrow, tissue masses, gallbladder, heart, ileum, jejunum, duodenum, kidneys, liver, lungs and bronchi, mammary gland, nerves (sciatic), ovaries, lymph nodes, pancreas, parathyroids, pituitary gland, prostrate, rectum, skin, spleen, seminal vesicles, skeletal muscle, testes with epididymides, stomach, thymus, thyroid gland including parathyroid, trachea, urinary bladder, uterus.

 At the end of study, no treatment-related effects were reported on survival. No treatment-related changes were reported at gross necropsy. Histological evaluation revealed a variety of lesions, including neoplasms, present at similar incidences in control and treated animals. The authors considered the lesions to be spontaneous and not related to administration of the test material. There were no compound related effects on fertility, gestation, pup viability or lactation indices, on reproductive organs of females, or on organ weights among parents and offspring. There were no compound related lesions in any tissue examined histologically, including kidneys and adrenal glands from parental rats or from offspring. There was no toxicity to either the F1 or F2 generation. Food consumption was similar for control and treated animals at the lower dietary levels, but was slightly higher in the high-dose study, although not statistically significant. Haematological, clinical chemistry and urinalysis parameters did not differ significantly from the controls. Necropsies at one year did not reveal any treatment-related gross or microscopic changes. Hence NOAEL was considered to be 500mg/kg bw/day for F0, F1 and F2 generation. When male and female Charles River CD rats were treated with test material orally.

Study 2

A multigeneration reproductive toxicity study of test material was performed on male and female wistar rats. The test material mixed with feed in dose concentration 0, 0.1, 1.0 or 3% (0, 50, 500, 1500 mg/kg bw per day) and administered orally for three successive generations. Each generation having 60 animals of each sex in the control and 40 animals of each sex in test animals. No adverse effects were observed with respect to fertility, litter size and weight, general condition, male/female ratio, growth during lactation, survival or maturation. Autopsy of parent rats and pups at weaning did not reveal any treatment related changes in organ weights other than caecal enlargement in the 3% dose group. Gross and microscopic examination of the F3 generation at weaning did not reveal any abnormalities due to treatment and no adverse effects were seen in the teratology study. It was concluded that Brilliant Black PN did not exert any adverse effects on reproductive function of Wistar rats when fed at dietary levels up to 3% (1500 mg/kg bw per day) for three successive generations. Therefore, NOAEL was considered to be at 3% (1500 mg/kg bw per day) for F0 F1 and F2 generation .When male and female wistar rats were treated with test material orally.

 

 Thus, Based on the data available for the read across chemical, No Observed Adverse Effect Level (NOAEL) was considered to be above 500 -1500mg/kg bw . Thus, comparing this value with the criteria of CLP regulation 2-Naphthalenesulfonic acid, 7-amino-4-hydroxy-3-[[2-methoxy-5-methyl-4-[[2-(sulfooxy)ethyl]sulfonyl] phenyl]azo]-8-[[2-sulfo-4-[[2-(sulfooxy)ethyl]sulfonyl]phenyl]azo]-, tetrasodium salt  (503155 -49 -5)is not likely to classify as reproductive toxicant.

 At the end of study, no treatment-related effects were reported on survival. No treatment-related changes were reported at gross necropsy. Histological evaluation revealed a variety of lesions, including neoplasms, present at similar incidences in control and treated animals. The authors considered the lesions to be spontaneous and not related to administration of the test material. There were no compound related effects on fertility, gestation, pup viability or lactation indices, on reproductive organs of females, or on organ weights among parents and offspring. There were no compound related lesions in any tissue examined histologically, including kidneys and adrenal glands from parental rats or from offspring. There was no toxicity to either the F1 or F2 generation. Food consumption was similar for control and treated animals at the lower dietary levels, but was slightly higher in the high-dose study, although not statistically significant. Haematological, clinical chemistry and urinalysis parameters did not differ significantly from the controls. Necropsies at one year did not reveal any treatment-related gross or microscopic changes. Hence NOAEL was considered to be 500mg/kg bw/day for F0, F1 and F2 generation. When male and female Charles River CD rats were treated with test material orally.

It was concluded that Brilliant Black PN did not exert any adverse effects on reproductive function of Wistar rats when fed at dietary levels up to 3% (1500 mg/kg bw per day) for three successive generations. Therefore, NOAEL was considered to be at 3% (1500 mg/kg bw per day) for F0 F1 and F2 generation .When male and female wistar rats were treated with test material orally.

 

Thus, Based on the data available form different studies , No Observed Adverse Effect Level (NOAEL) was considered to be above 500 -1500mg/kg bw . Thus, comparing this value with the criteria of CLP regulation2-Naphthalenesulfonic acid, 7-amino-4-hydroxy-3-[[2-methoxy-5-methyl-4-[[2-(sulfooxy)ethyl]sulfonyl] phenyl]azo]-8-[[2-sulfo-4-[[2-(sulfooxy)ethyl]sulfonyl]phenyl]azo]-, tetrasodium salt  (CAS No. 503155-49-5)is not likely to classify as reproductive toxicant
