Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
practically nontoxic
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
The acute oral median lethal dose (LD50) of the test item in the rat was estimated to be greater than 15000 mg/kg bw. According to the a.i. concentration the LD50 of the a.i. (CAS: 1406-66-2) is calculated to be greater than 7500 mg/kg bw.
Executive summary:

The acute oral toxicity of the test item was investigated in five Sprague-Dawley rats of each sex similar to the OECD guidelines for acute oral toxicity studies (limit test). The rats received a single oral dose of 15000 mg/kg bw. No mortality occurred. Two animals showed diarrhea on day 2.

The acute oral median lethal dose (LD50) of the test item in the rat was estimated to be greater than 15000 mg/kg body weight. The a.i. content was 50% and thus the LD50 of the a.i. (CAS: 1406 -66 -2) was calculated to be greater than 7500 mg/kg bw.
