EC number: 927-632-8 | CAS number: -
MRD-89-582 was administered by oral gavage to rats at concentrations of 500, 2500 and 5000 mg/kg, 7 days a week for 13 weeks to assess the subchronic toxicity. An additional group of animals, dosed at 5000 mg/kg/day, was held for 4 weeks to assess reversibility. No treatment-related mortality was observed; however, male body weights were decreased while food consumption increased in the 2500 and 5000 mg/kg dose groups. Liver weights were elevated in male and female rats at 2500 and 5000 mg/kg/day. Adrenal weights were significantly increased in male and female rats at 5000 mg/kg and in female rats at 2500 and 5000 mg/kg. Testes weights were elevated in male rats at 5000 mg/kg. Kidney effects occurred in males at all dose levels, and are indicative of alpha-2u-globulin nephropathy. Alpha-2u-globulin nephropathy, also known as hyaline droplet nephropathy, results from the formation of complexes with a naturally occurring protein (alpha-2u-globulin) in the kidneys of male rats. These complexes can accumulate in the proximal renal tubule and may produce species-specific histopathological changes. These kidney effects are specific to male rats and are not considered to be of biological relevance to humans.
Dose-related changes in hematology or serum chemistry parameters were observed and were consistent with the changes seen in the liver. Histological findings of hepatocellular hypertrophy (liver cell enlargement) were seen in livers of both sexes in all dose groups. These findings are believed to have been a compensatory response and not an indication of toxicity. Additionally, these liver effects were reversible and occurred only at high doses that are not typical of hydrocarbon exposures for humans. Other treatment-related effects were mucosal thickening and other signs of irritation of the stomach and anus which appear to be the direct result of high dose intubation of a the locally irritating test substance. These effects are believed to have been a compensatory response to local irritation and not an indication of toxicity. All treatment-related effects were reversible within the 4-week recovery period. Based on the results, the No Observed Adverse Effect Level (NOAEL) for the 90-day study was greater than 5000 mg/kg/day.
