TEST ANIMALS
- Source: Taconic Farms, Germantown, New York
- Age at study initiation: 10-11 weeks of age

No additional data
Doses:
5000 mg/kg bw
No. of animals per sex per dose:
5 rats/sex/dose (see Table 7.2.1/1)
Control animals:
no
Details on study design:
- Duration of observation period following administration: 14 days
- Frequency of observations and weighing: 1, 2, 4, 6 hours after dosing and once per day thereafter, body weights: prior to dosing and at day 7 and 14.

Statistics:
no data
Preliminary study:
no additional data
Sex:
male/female
Dose descriptor:
LD50
Effect level:
> 5 000 mg/kg bw
Mortality:
No mortality was observed during the study
Clinical signs:
There were few clinical in-life observations during the test period.
A/G staining was observed in 5 males and 4 females animals at the 4 hour observation and in 5 males and 5 females at the 6 hours observation.
Unthrifty coat was observed in 2 males and 4 females on the day 1 observation.
Alopecia was observed on day 10, 11, 12, 13 on one female.
Body weight:
No effect was observed on body weight gain for all animals.
Gross pathology:
The only gross post mortem observation noted at necropsy was lung discoloration in 7 of the 10 test animals.
Other findings:
No additional data

No additional data

Interpretation of results:
other: Practically non toxic
Remarks:
Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
Under the test conditions, MRD-83-207 is not classified according to the criteria of Annex VI to the Directive 67/548/EEC and CLP Regulation 1272/2008.
Executive summary:

MRD-83-207 was tested for acute oral toxicity in Sprague-Dawley rats in a limit dose assay.
The test substance, a liquid, was administered as supplied. Animals were fasted overnight prior to treatment. The assay was conducted on a group of 10 rats (5 males, 5 females) with a dose of 5000 mg/kg b.w. administered by gavage (via a syringe) in a single oral dose.


Examinations for mortality, clinical signs and body weight gain were performed during the 14-day observation period. All surviving animals were necropsied at the end of the observation period.

No deaths occurred during the study. Body weight gain was not affected by treatment. A/G staining was noted in all animals within the 6-hour observation period. In-life observations also included alopecia and unkempt coat. At necropsy, macroscopic examination of main organs showed lung discoloration in seven animals.

As the acute oral LD50 was found to be greater than 5000 mg/kg b.w. under the conditions of the test, MRD-83-207 is not classified according to the criteria of Annex VI to Directive 67/548/EEC and CLP Regulation 1272/2008.
