- Housing: in groups in IVC cages, type III H, polysulphone cages
- Diet: ad libitum, Altromin 1324 maintenance diet for rats and mice
- Water: ad libitum, tap water, sulphur acidified to a pH value of approximately 2.8 (drinking water, municipal residue control, microbiol. controlled periodically)

Administration / exposure

Route of administration:
oral: gavage
Vehicle:
cotton seed oil
Details on oral exposure:
VEHICLE
- Concentration in vehicle: 0.2 g/ml
- Amount of vehicle (if gavage): 1. step: 1.5 g of the test item were dissolved in the vehicle to gain a final volume of 7.5 ml, 2. step: 2 g of the test item were dissolved in a final volume of 10 ml, dose volume: 10 mL/kg body weight
- Justification for choice of vehicle: The vehicle was chosen due to its non-toxic characterics
- Lot/batch no. (if required): Sigma Aldrich, lot MKBH489V, expiry date 10/2012
- Purity: not mentioned
Doses:
2000mg/kg
No. of animals per sex per dose:
6 (3 in each of the 2 steps)
Control animals:
no
Details on study design:
- Duration of observation period following administration: 14 days
- Frequency of observations and weighing: The animals were weighed on day 1 prior to the administration and on days 8 and 15. A 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. Thereafter, the animals were observed for clinical signs once daily until the end of the observation period. All abnormalities were recorded.
- Necropsy of survivors performed: yes, at the end of the observation period the animals were sacrified by an over-dosage of phenobarbital.
- Other examinations performed: clinical signs, body weight, gross pathology
Statistics:
Not performed

Results and discussion

Preliminary study:
not mentioned
Effect levels
Sex:
female
Dose descriptor:
LD50
Effect level:
> 2 000 mg/kg bw
Based on:
test mat.
Mortality:
no
Clinical signs:
All animals showed slight piloerection. 3 of the 6 animals showed slightly reduced spontaneous activity and half eyelid-closure. From day 2 until the end of the observation period all animals had no signs of toxicity.
Body weight:
None of the animals showed weight loss during the observation period.
Gross pathology:
With the exception of acute injection of blood vessels in the abdominal region, which is due to the euthanasia injection, no specific gross pathological changes were recorded for any animal.
Other findings:
- Organ weights: Not reported
- Histopathology: Not reported
- Potential target organs: Not reported
- Other observations: Not reported

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
practically nontoxic
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
No animal died. The LD50 was > 2000 mg/kg body weight. Therefore according to CLP the substance is not classified.
Executive summary:

The median lethal dose of Alchisor TAL 123 after a single oral administration to female rats, observed over a perid of 14 days is LD50 > 2000 mg/kg. At a dose of 2000 mg/kg there was seen slight piloerection in all animals and other signs of toxicity in three of the six animals (slightly reduced spontaneous activity, half eyelid-closure).
