Executive summary:

ln principle, the methods described in OECD Guideline 401 were used without GLP compliance.

5 rats per sex and dose were treated simultaneously with concentrations of 5000, 2150, 464 and 215 mg/Kgby gavage with preparations of the test substance in water as vehicle.

Group-wise documentation of clinical signs was performed over a 14- day study period, where clinical signs and mortality were documented at least once daily. Mortality was observed among the high doses in both sexes after 24 hours: 5000 mg/kg (5/5) and 2150 mg/kg (5/5). At 465 mg/kg 2 of 5 male animals died.

On the basis of the observed lethality, the LD50 value was estimated to be > 464 <2150 mg/kg bw for female and about 464 mg/kg bw for male. As a conseqence of it, the test substance should be classified as acute oral toxicity category 4 (GHS). (BASF, 1987)

Additional information

Justification for grouping of substances and read-across

There are no reliable data available for the acute toxicity of 2-Propyn-1-ol, polymer with ethylene oxide (CAS 25749-64-8). In order to fulfil the standard information requirements set out in Annex VIII, 8.5, in accordance with Annex XI, 1.5, of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, read-across from structurally related substances was conducted.

In accordance with Article 13 (1) of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, "information on intrinsic properties of substances may be generated by means other than tests, provided that the conditions set out in Annex XI are met.” In particular for human toxicity, information shall be generated whenever possible by means other than vertebrate animal tests, which includes the use of information from structurally related substances (grouping or read-across).

Having regard to the general rules for grouping of substances and read-across approach laid down in Annex XI, Item 1.5, of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, whereby substances may be predicted as similar provided that their physicochemical, toxicological and ecotoxicological properties are likely to be similar or follow a regular pattern as a result of structural similarity, the substance listed below are selected as reference substances for hazard assessment.

Acute toxicology: oral

 

a)     Target substance (CAS 25749-64-8)

 

The test was performed in principle with the methods described in OECD Guideline 423 without GLP compliance. 5 rats per sex and dose were treated simultaneously with concentrations of 4640 µl/kg, 3160 µl/kg, 2150 µl/kg (4756 mg/kg, 3239 mg/kg, 2204 mg/kg) by gavage with preparations of the test substance in water as vehicle. Group-wise documentation of clinical signs was performed over a 14- day study period, where clinical signs and mortality were documented. Mortality was observed among all doses. Most critical value was 2150 µl/kg  bw (2204 mg/kg) with 3 of 5 dead female.

The authors concluded on the basis of the observed lethality, the LD50 value to be 2184 mg/kg bw (2100 µl/kg bw) (BASF, 1975).

 

b)     Target substance (CAS 25749-64-8)

 

This test was performed in principle as described in OECD guideline 420 without GLP compliance. 5 rats per sex and dose were treated simultaneously with concentrations of 3160 mg/kg, 2150 mg/kg and 1470 mg/kg by gavage with preparations of the test substance in water as vehicle. Group-wise documentation of clinical signs was performed over the 14- day study period, where clinical signs and mortality was documented, which was observed among 3160 mg/kg and 2150 mg/kg.

On the basis of the observed lethality, the mean LD50 (female/male) value was estimated to be 2500 mg/kg bw. (BASF, 1976).

 

c)     Source substance (CAS 38172-91-7) (Read-across)

 

This test was performed in principle as described in OECD guideline 401 without GLP compliance. 5 rats per sex and dose were treated simultaneously with concentrations of 5000, 2150, 464 and 215 mg/kg by gavage with preparations of the test substance (purity approx. 50%) in water as vehicle. Group-wise documentation of clinical signs was performed over a 14- day study period, where clinical signs and mortality were documented at least once daily. Mortality was observed among the high doses in both sexes after 24 hours: 5000 mg/kg (5/5) and 2150 mg/kg (5/5). At 465 mg/kg 2 of 5 male animals died but no females. At 215 mg/kg no mortality was observed.

On the basis of the observed lethality, the LD50 value refered to the active ingredient was estimated to be > 232 < 1075 mg/kg bw for females and about > 232 mg/kg bw for male (BASF, 1987). Linear regression using the both lowest deads rates for males lead to an LD50 (m) 526 mg/kg bw, which represents the most critical value.

 

Acute toxicology: inhalation

 

a)     Target substance (CAS 25749-64-8)

 

This test was performed in principle as described in OECD Guideline 403 without GLP compliance. 3 rats per sex were exposed sequentially to the vapor, generated by bubbling 200 1/h air through a substance column of about 5 cm above a fritted glass disc in a glass cylinder for 3 hours and 8 hours. Documentation of clinical signs and mortality was performed over 7 days.

No mortality occured in this study after 3h-exposure. Exposure of 8hours reveals one dead animal after 24h, one dead animal after 48h and one dead animal after 72h, so that half of the animals were dead after 72h.

The classification criteria for acute inhalation toxicity relate to a 4h experimental exposure period. According to the applicant, an adjustment to a 4h-equivalent by Haber´s law (c^n*t=constant) result in an LC50 of 1.67 mg/l/4h (BASF, 1975).

 

b)     Target substance (CAS 25749-64-8)

 

This test was performed in principle as described in OECD Guideline 403 without GLP compliance. 3 rats per sex were exposed sequentially to the vapor, generated by bubbling 200 1/h air through a substance column of about 5 cm above a fritted glass disc in a glass cylinder for 3 and 7 hours. Documentation of clinical signs and mortality was performed over 14 days. The highest tested concentration of test substance (vapour saturation concentration 2.01 mg/l) shows one dead animal after 1 day but no further mortality in the following 13 days.

The classification criteria for acute inhalation toxicity relate to a 4h experimental exposure period. According to the applicant an adjustment to a 4h-equivalent by Haber´s law (c^n*t=constant) resulted in an LC50 of > 2.41 mg/l/4h (BASF, 1976).

 

 

Acute toxicology: dermal

 

a)     Target substance (CAS 25749-64-8)

 

Before OECD Guideline 404 was established in 1982, skin irritation was tested using an internal method. 3 rats per sex were treated with an application site of 5cm2with the test substance (2000 mg/kg). The report describes findings after 1hour, after the first day and daily from day 4 to day 8 and daily from day 11 to day 14. Acute dermal toxicity tested with a single dose of 2000 mg/kg reveals no signs of toxicity or mortality.

Therefore the LD50 is derived as >2000 mg/kg (BASF, 1977).

 

 

b)     Source substance  (CAS 38172-91-7) (Read across)

 

In an acute dermal toxicity study (OECD 402), 5 young adult Wistar rats of both sexes were dermally exposed to doses of 2000 mg/kg and 500 mg/kg bw of 2-Propyn-1-ol, compd. with methyloxirane (purity approx. 55%) to the clipped skin and covered by semi-occlusive dressing for 24 hours under GLP conditions. The application area comprised at least 10% of the total body surface area. The animals were observed for 14 days. No mortality occurred and no other signs of systemic toxicity were observed.

Accordingly, the acute dermal median lethal dose (LD50) was determined to be LD50, dermal, rat > 2000 mg/kg bw (TI) or > 1100 mg/kg bw (active ingredient).(BASF 2013).

 

Key study assignment:

 

Acute oral:

There are few information according acute oral toxicity available. For the target substance the available studies (BASF 1975, 1976), are not well documented and thus judged as less reliable especially as the studies are not more critical than the study conducted with the source substance. Therefore information from the study with the source substance (BASF, 1987) was assigned as key study and less reliable information was assigned as supporting studies.

 

Acute inhalation:

Both inhalation studies (BASF 1975, BASF 1976) conducted with the target substance are less reliable due to a lack in documentation and therefore entered as weight of evidence. Nevertheless the most critical result will be used for hazard assessment in a worst case approach.

 

Acute dermal:

There is a only less reliable study (BASF, 1977) with the target substance on dermal toxicity available, which was limited in documentation. Therefore further information from a source substance study (BASF, 2013) is used espacially due to the similar result (no effects) and entered as a WoE approach showing no dermal toxicity. 

 

 

Conclusion for acute toxicity

In summary, two less reliable acute oral toxicity studies from 2-Propyn-1-ol, polymer with ethylene oxide(CAS 25749-64-8) are available which points to an LD50 in the area of 2000 mg/kg bw. Therefore another reliable acute oral toxicity study from source substance (read across substance) 2-Propyn-1-ol, compd. with ethyloxirane (CAS 38172-91-7) was used as additional information source to assess the oral toxicity.  Based on the observed lethality of 2/5 dead male and 0/5 female animals at 464 mg/kg and 5/5 females and males died at 2150 mg/kg, the oral LD50 is estimated in the range of > 464 < 2150 mg/kg bw. Using linear regression (only the two lowest dosages for males) a LD50 (m) = 526 mg/kg bw can be calculated. Take this value into account as well as the hints from the less reliable studies with the source substance leading to LD 50 category >300 mg/kg < 2000 mg/kg as most suitable.

 

For acute inhalation toxicity, one study with 2-Propyn-1-ol, polymer with ethylene oxide(CAS 25749-64-8)and one inhalation risk test are available. These studies resulted after adjustment with Haber´s law in the LC50 value of 1.67 and > 2.41 mg/L/4h. Both studies are less reliable and were used as weight of evidence. In compliance with worst case assumption, the substance is judged as moderate toxic via inhalation and an LC50 of 1.67 mg/L/4h will be used for classification.

 

Two acute dermal toxicity studies conducted 2-Propyn-1-ol, polymer with ethylene oxide(CAS 25749-64-8)and one read-across study with 2-Propyn-1-ol, compd. with ethyloxirane (CAS 38172-91-7)showed no treatment related effects at the limit dose of 2000 mg/kg (> 1100 mg/kg concerning active ingredient). Both studies show that a low dermal toxicity can be expected for the target as well as for the source substance, therefore, the dermal LD50 is considered to be greater than 2000 mg/kg bw respectively and the target substance should not be classified concerning GHS (EU).

 

In summary the available data indicate a low acute oral toxicity LD50 (m) 526 mg/kg bw, a moderate acute inhalation toxicity with an LC50=1.67 mg/L/4h and no acute toxicity via dermal route (LD50 > 2000 mg/kg bw).



Justification for selection of acute toxicity – oral endpoint
Most reliable and relevant information. LD50 > 232 <1075 mg/kg bw. Calculated lowest LD50 (m) 526 mg/kg bw.

Justification for selection of acute toxicity – inhalation endpoint
Most reliable and relevant information. Weight of evidence approach.

Justification for selection of acute toxicity – dermal endpoint
Most reliable and relevant information. Weight of evidence approach.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the information received for the target substance and structurally similar source substance, a classification is derived according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008.

The substance is classified as:

- acute oral toxicity category 4

- acute inhalation toxicity category 2

- acute dermal toxicity: not classified

Due to the irritation of the lung during the inhalation test, the substance has further to classified as

- H335: May cause respiratory
