Administration / exposure

Route of administration:
oral: gavage
other: 1% Na-Carboxymethylcellulose aqueous swelling.
Details on oral exposure:
- Concentration in vehicle: The test substance was suspended in a 1% Na-Carboxymethylcellulose aqueous swelling.
5000 mg/kg b.w.
No. of animals per sex per dose:
5 males and 5 females
Control animals:
Details on study design:
- Duration of observation period following administration: 14 days
- Frequency of observations and weighing: Behavior, reactions and physical signs of the animals were observed approximately 1, 10, 30 min, 1, 2, 4 and 6 hours after administration (p.a.) and then at least once a day for 2 weeks.
- Necropsy of survivors performed: yes
- Other examinations performed: clinical signs, body weight,organ weights, histopathology, other: Changes were recorded. Body weight was determi ned before administration, 7 days p.a. and 14 days p.a. All animals were sacrificed by C02 14 days p.a. and examined macroscopically in an attempt to identify the target organs.

Results and discussion

Effect levels
Dose descriptor:
Effect level:
> 5 000 mg/kg bw
No animal died spontaneously during the study. The LD50 (oral) is higher than 5000 mg Austrostab 133 per kg body weight.
Clinical signs:
other: All animals showed raised fur and slightly decreased motor activities from about 4 hours p.a. to 9 days p.a. at the longest. Arched back was observedin animal No. 6 f between one and 4 days p.a. No other adverse effects were noted during observation time.
Gross pathology:
No abnormal findings were noted at post mortem examination.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
practically nontoxic
Migrated information The LD50 (oral) is higher than 5000 mg Austrostab 133 per kg body weight Criteria used for interpretation of results: other: OECD-Guideline 401
The LD50 (oral) is higher than 5000 mg Austrostab 133 per kg body weight.
Executive summary:

It was the aim of this study to reveal acute toxic effects of AUSTROSTAB 133 after a single oral administration of 5000 mg test substance per kg body weight. AUSTROSTAB 133 is a stabilizer.

Austrostab 133 was administered perorally to 5 male and 5 female Sprague Dawley rats once at a dose of 5000 mg test substance per kg body weight. The test substance was suspended in a 1 % Na-Carboxymethylcellulose aqueous swelling. Methods and investigations performed were in conformance with OECD-Guideline 401.


Toxic signs in life: Signs of reduced well-being in all animals were slightly decreased motor activities and raised fur. Onset of signs was approximately 4 hours p.a. No other toxic effects were noted during in life observations.

Mortality: All animals survived till the end of the study.

Post Mortem Examination:

At post mortem examination 14 days after administration no lesions were detected.

LD50 (oral):

The LD50 (oral) is higher than 5000 mg Austrostab 133 per kg body weight.

These results can be assigned to lead silicate since a read across based on a grouping of substances (Pb substances) is applied.
