Results and discussion

Preliminary study:
LD50 dermal >2000 mg/kg body weight
Effect levels
Sex:
male/female
Dose descriptor:
LD50
Effect level:
> 2 000 mg/kg bw
Based on:
test mat.
Mortality:
Male: 2000 mg/kg bw; Number of animals: 5; Number of deaths: 0
Female: 2000 mg/kg bw; Number of animals: 5; Number of deaths: 0
Clinical signs:
Signs of toxicity related to dose levels:
None.
Body weight:
On Day eight a low bodyweight gain was recorded for three females and a bodyweight loss was recorded for one other female. All other animals
were considered to have achieved satisfactory bodyweight gains throughout the study.
Gross pathology:
Effects on organs:
None.
Other findings:
Signs of toxicity (local):
After bandage removal a small area of scab formation was noted in two males and one female and for one other female from day 6, and another female from day 8. These reactions had all resolved by day 11. In addition very slight irritation was observed in two females on day 3. These reactions had resolved by day 4.
