Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The 28 days sub-acute repeated dose study on male and female rat indicated that no effects observed on clinical sign, mortality, body weight, food consumption, urinalysis, organ weight, and haematology.
Thus, on the basis of study results the NOAEL (No observed adverse effect level) was observed to be 300 mg/kg/day bw.
Executive summary:

In order to determined the repeated oral toxicity of 4-aminotoluene-3-sulphonic acid, after 14 days preliminary study a 28 days sub acute repeated dose toxicity study inSprague-Dawleyrats (male and female) was conducted at dose levels of 0(vehicle), 100, 300 and 1000 mg/kg/day by oral gavage route .

From experimental study no clinical sign, mortality, body weight, food consumption, urinalysis, organ weight, and haematology at mid dose group.

Thus, on the basis of above results the NOAEL (No observed adverse effect level) for 4-aminotoluene-3-sulphonic acid was considered to be 300 mg/kg/day bw.
