Endpoint:
acute toxicity: oral
Type of information:
migrated information: read-across from supporting substance (structural analogue or surrogate)
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: see 'Remark'
Remarks:
Although the study was conducted according to GLP and well documented methods, " Practical guide 10: How to avoid unnecessary testing on animals", Section 3.3.2 states it is important that the reliability indicator (Klimisch score) reflects the assumptions of similarity. Thus, a score of 1 (reliable without restrictions) should normally not be used for results derived from read-across.

Executive summary:

An acute oral toxicity study was conducted in four week old male mice with L-158,086-005H. Five mice were used at each dose level and were observed for a 48 hour observation period.  Signs of toxicity following the oral administration of the test compound were ataxia, decreased activity, bradypnea and ptosis. The signs were seen at the 3000 mg/kg dose level in ~15 minutes and at the 2308 mg/kg dose level within 90 minutes. No signs were seen at lower doses. Deaths occurred in about 3 to 4.5 hours and were preceded by a loss of righting reflex. Surviving mice appeared normal in 3 to 4 hours. On the second day ataxia and bradypnea were seen at the 1775 mg/kg dose only and by the end of the second day all survivors appeared normal.
