Administration / exposure

Route of administration:
oral: gavage
Vehicle:
DMSO
Details on oral exposure:
VEHICLE
- Concentration in vehicle: 30 and 200 mg/mL
- Amount of vehicle (if gavage): 10 mL/kg bw
- Justification for choice of vehicle: DMSO was used as vehicle because the test item did not dissolve/suspend in distilled water or arachis oil BP.

MAXIMUM DOSE VOLUME APPLIED: 10 mL/kg bw

DOSAGE PREPARATION: For the purpose of the study, the test item was freshly prepared, as required, as a suspension in dimethyl sulphoxide. The test item was formulated within 2 hours of being applied to the test system. It is assumed that the formulation was stable for this duration.
Doses:
- Sighting study: 300 and 2000 mg/kg bw
- Main study: 2000 mg/kg bw
No. of animals per sex per dose:
- Sighting study: 1 female/dose
- Main study: 5 females/dose (1 animal included from sighting study)
Control animals:
no
Details on study design:
- Duration of observation period following administration: 14 days
- Frequency of observations and weighing: Clinical observations were made 0.5, 1, 2, and 4 h after dosing and then daily for 14 days. Morbidity and mortality checks were made twice daily. Individual body weights were recorded on Day 0 (the day of dosing) and on Days 7 and 14.
- Necropsy of survivors performed: Yes; at the end of the observation period, animals were killed by cervical dislocation and subjected to gross necropsy.
Statistics:
None

Results and discussion

Preliminary study:
- No mortality or clinical signs were observed at 300 mg/kg bw.
- The animal showed expected gains in body weight over the observation period.
- No abnormalities were noted at necropsy.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
Rat Oral LD50 (females) > 2000 mg/kg bw
Under the test conditions, the test material is not classified according to the annex VI of the Regulation EC No. 1272/2008 (CLP).
Executive summary:

In an acute oral toxicity study performed according to OECD Guideline 420 and in compliance with GLP, groups (5 females/dose) of Wistar (RccHan™:WIST) rats were given a single oral (gavage) dose of test item at 2000 mg/kg bw. Animals were then observed for mortality, clinical signs and bodyweights for 14 days and at the end of the study the surviving animals were sacrificed for macroscopic examination. Sighting study was conducted at the dose levels of 300 and 2000 mg/kg bw (one female/dose) to determine the dose for main study.

 

In the sighting study, no mortality or clinical signs were observed at 300 mg/kg bw. The animal showed expected gains in body weight over the observation period. No abnormalities were noted at necropsy. In the main study, no mortality or clinical signs were observed at 2000 mg/kg bw. All animals showed expected gains in body weight over the observation period. No abnormalities were noted at necropsy.
