- Artificial light, sequence being 12 hours light, 12 hours dark
- Air change: 10 x / hour
- Free access to Altromin 1324 maintenance diet for rats and mice (lot no. 0815)
- Free access to tap water, sulphur acidified to a pH value of approximately 2.8 (drinking water, municipal residue control, microbiological
controls at regular intervals)
- The animals were kept individually in IVC cages, type III H, polysulphone cages on Altromin saw fibre bedding (lot no. 110811)
- Certificates of food, water and bedding are filed at BSL BIOSERVICE

Administration / exposure

Type of coverage:
semiocclusive
Vehicle:
water
Remarks:
Diprom, lot no. 10952-1, expiry date: 09/2013
Details on dermal exposure:
The test item was applied at a single dose, uniformly over an area which was approximately 10% of the total body surface.
The test item was held in contact with the skin by a dressing throughout a 24-hour period. The dressing consisted of a gauze-dressing
and non-irritating tape and was fixed with an additional dressing in a suitable manner.
Duration of exposure:
The test item was held in contact with the skin throughout a 24-hour period. At the end of the exposure period the residual test item was
removed using tap water.
Doses:
The test item was applied at a single dose of 2000 mg/kg body weight to each animal.
No. of animals per sex per dose:
5 male and 5 female
Control animals:
not required
Details on study design:
Observation period:
All animals were observed for 14 days after dosing

Weight Assessment:
The animals were weighed on day 1 (prior to the application) and on days 8 and 15.

Clinical Examination:
careful clinical examination was made several times on the day of dosing (at least once during the first 30 minutes and with special attention
given during the first 4 hours post-dose). As soon as symptoms were noticed they were recorded. Thereafter, the animals were observed for
clinical signs once daily until the end of the observation period. All abnormalities were recorded.
Cageside observations included changes in the skin and fur, eyes and mucous membranes. Also respiratory, circulatory, autonomic and central
nervous systems and somatomotor activity and behaviour pattern were examined. Attention was directed to observations of tremors,
convulsions, salivation, diarrhoea, lethargy, sleep and coma.

Pathology:
At the end of the observation period the surviving animals were sacrificed with an overdosage of pentobarbital injected intraperitoneally
(Narcoren®, Merial) at the dosage of approximately 8 mL/kg bw. All animals were subjected to gross necropsy. All gross pathological changes
were recorded and in case of findings the tissues were preserved for a possible histopathological evaluation. The preserved tissues of which
no histopathological evaluation was made will be discarded 3 months after the release of the final report unless otherwise agreed upon with
the sponsor.

Evaluation of Results:
Individual reactions of each animal were recorded at each time of observation.
Toxic response data were recorded by sex and dose level.
Nature, severity and duration of clinical observations were described.
The body weight changes were summarised in a tabular form.
Necropsy findings were described.
On the basis of the test results, the test item may be classified in one of the following classes in conformity with the criteria given in Annex VI to Commission Directive 2001/59/EC:
• Very toxic
Substances and preparations shall be classified as very toxic, and assigned the symbol “T+” and indication of danger “very toxic” in accordance with the criteria specified below:
R27 Very toxic in contact with skin
- LD50 dermal, rat or rabbit: <= 50 mg/kg
• Toxic
Substances and preparations shall be classified as toxic, and assigned the symbol “T” and indication of danger “toxic” in accordance with the criteria specified below. Risk phrases shall be assigned in accordance with the following criteria:
R24 Toxic in contact with skin
- LD50 dermal, rat or rabbit: 50 < LD50 <= 400 mg/kg
• Harmful
Substances and preparations shall be classified as harmful, and assigned the symbol “Xn” and indication of danger “harmful” in accordance with the criteria specified below. Risk phrases shall be assigned in accordance with the following criteria:
R21 Harmful in contact with skin
- LD50 dermal, rat or rabbit: 400 < LD50 <= 2000 mg/kg
On the basis of the test results, the following risk phrases may be assigned in conformity with the criteria given in Annex I of Regulation (EC) 1272/2008:
Category 1: LD50 <= 50 mg/kg. DANGER. Skull and crossbones in diamond. Fatal in contact with skin.
Category 2: LD50 > 50 mg/kg <= 200 mg/kg. DANGER. Skull and crossbones in diamond. Fatal in contact with skin.

Category 4: LD50 > 1000 mg/kg <= 2000 mg/kg. WARNING. Exclamation point in diamond. Harmful in contact with skin.
On the basis of the test results, the following risk phrases may be assigned in conformity with the criteria given in GHS - Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals, third revised edition, July 2009:
Category 1: LD50 <= 50 mg/kg. DANGER. Skull and crossbones in diamond. Fatal in contact with skin.
Category 2: LD50 > 50 mg/kg <= 200 mg/kg. DANGER. Skull and crossbones in diamond. Fatal in contact with skin.

of the results is not regarded as necessary.

Results and discussion

Effect levels
Sex:
male/female
Dose descriptor:
LD50
Effect level:
> 2 000 mg/kg bw
Based on:
test mat.
Mortality:
No mortality was observed.
Clinical signs:
The most relevant clinical findings in the animals treated with the test item at a dose of 2000 mg/kg bw were reduced spontaneous activity,
piloerection and nasal discharge. These signs are considered to be common symptoms in acute dermal tests.
Body weight:
A slight weight loss was recorded for 5 out of 5 female animals during the first week, but all of the female animals showed weight gain
during the second week. The effects on weight development might be secondary to the dressing, and toxicological relevance of this finding
cannot clearly be concluded. The male animals showed weight gain during the first and the second week of the observation.
Gross pathology:
No treatment-related effects were observed.
Other findings:
No erythema or oedema was observed. Eschar was observed in 1 of 5 male and 1 of 5 female animals.
All signs of irritation were reversible within the observation period.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
Category 5 based on GHS criteria
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
Under the conditions of the present study, single dermal application of the test item FAT 40858/A TE to rats at a dose
of 2000 mg/kg body weight was associated with no mortality but signs of toxicity (which are considered to be common symptoms
in acute dermal tests) and signs of irritation. The dermal LD50 was determined to be > 2000 mg FAT 40858/A TE / kg body weight.
In conformity with the criteria given in Annex VI to Commission Directive 2001/59/EC the test item FAT 40858/A TE has no obligatory
labelling requirement for percutaneous toxicity.
According to Annex I of Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 the test item FAT 40858/A TE has no obligatory labelling requirement for
percutaneous toxicity and is unclassified.
According to GHS (Globally Harmonized Classification System) the test item FAT 40858/A TE has no obligatory labelling requirement
for percutaneous toxicity and is classified into Category 5.

On the basis of the test results given below and in conformity with the criteria given in Annex VI to Commission Directive 2001/59/EC, the substance should be:

Signs of toxicity related to dose level used, time of onset and duration:

The most relevant clinical findings in the animals treated with the test item at a dose of 2000 mg/kg bw were reduced spontaneous activity, piloerection and nasal discharge. These signs are considered to be common symptoms in acute dermal tests.

Effect on organs (related to dose level): No treatment-related effects were observed.

Signs of irritation: No erythema or oedema was observed. Eschar was observed in 1 of 5 male and 1 of 5 female animals.

All signs of irritation were reversible within the observation period.
