TEST ANIMALS
- Source: Charles River (U.K.) Limited, Margate, Kent, England
- Age at study initiation:5 weeks
- Weight at study initiation: males from 116 - 138 g and for females from 116 - 131 g.
- Fasting period before study: removal of food for approximately 18 hours before administration of the test material.
- Housing: The animals were housed in stainless steel grid cages (Stephen Clark Fabrications Limited, Alva, Clackmannanshire, Scotland).
- Diet (e.g. ad libitum):ad libitum, commercially-available complete pelleted rodent diet (RM-1 S.Q.C., from Special Diets Services Limited, Witham, Essex, England)
- Water (e.g. ad libitum): ad libitum
- Acclimation period: at least 5 days

ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS
- Temperature (°C): 18-21
- Humidity (%): 38-57
- Air changes (per hr): 15
- Photoperiod (hrs dark / hrs light):12/12

IN-LIFE DATES: 14 October 1992 - 6 November 1992

Administration / exposure

Route of administration:
oral: gavage
Vehicle:
maize oil
Details on oral exposure:
VEHICLE
- Concentration in vehicle: 200mg/ml
- Amount of vehicle (if gavage): 10ml/kg

DOSAGE PREPARATION (if unusual): The dosage was calculated and expressed gravimetrically in terms of the material as received. A fresh formulation of the test material was prepared shortly before administration and any surplus remaining after dosing was destroyed on the same day
Doses:
2000 mg/kg bw
No. of animals per sex per dose:
5
Control animals:
no
Details on study design:
- Duration of observation period following administration: 14 days
- Frequency of observations and weighing: Three separate inspections were made during the first hour after dosing and two further inspections during the remainder of Day 1. From Day 2 onwards the animals were inspected twice daily (morning and afternoon). The type t time of onset and duration of reactions to treatment were recorded. The bodyweight of each animal was recorded on the day before dosing and on Days It 8 and 15. The test was terminated on the morning of Day 15
- Necropsy of survivors performed: yes
Statistics:
None

Conclusions:
LD50 > 2000 mg/kg bw.
Executive summary:

The acute oral toxicity was investigated in a group of five male and five female CD rats at a dosage of 2000 mg/kg. The animals were starved overnight prior to dosing and the test material was administered at a constant volume-dosage of 10 ml/kg in maize oil. Mortality and signs of reaction to treatment were recorded during a subsequent 14-day observation period. The animals were killed on the following day and subjected to necropsy. There was no death and no sign of reaction to treatment. The animals achieved expected bodyweight gains and necropsy

revealed no significant macroscopic lesion. Under the conditions of this study, the acute oral median lethal dosage (LD50) of the test material was greater than 2000 mg/kg.
