- Housing: Groups of five animals were housed in Makrolon cages type III with dustfree wood pellets as bedding material.
- Diet: Altromin R 1324, Altromin GmbH, Germany, ad libitum
- Water: tap water, ad libitum

- Photoperiod (hrs dark / hrs light): 12/12

Administration / exposure

Route of administration:
oral: gavage
Vehicle:
other: Lutrol
Details on oral exposure:
MAXIMUM DOSE VOLUME APPLIED: 20 mL/kg bw
Doses:
1000, 3100 or 5000 mg/kg bw
No. of animals per sex per dose:
5
Control animals:
no
Details on study design:

Results and discussion

Effect levels
Sex:
male/female
Dose descriptor:
LD50
Effect level:
3 100 mg/kg bw
Remarks on result:
other: 5/10 animal died at 3100 mg/kg bw (2 males and 3 females)
Mortality:
No mortality occurred in the 1000 mg/kg bw group. In the 3100 mg/kg bw group, 2/5 males and 3/5 females died during the first 2 days after application of the test substance. In the 5000 mg/kg bw group, 4/5 males and 4/5 females were found dead during the first 4 hours after application of the test substance.
Clinical signs:
Clinical signs were observed in all dose groups. The general condition of all animals was decreased and they layed down in side or prone position and showed signs of sedation and anaesthesia. These symptoms were fully reversible within 2 days.
Gross pathology:
Necropsy of surviving animals on a radom basis revealed no substance-related findings. No necropsy or histopahological examination was done in the animals that died during the observation period.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
not classified
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
The median lethal dose of the test substance (LD50) was 3100 mg per kg body weight. Based on the result of this study the substance is not subject for labelling and classification requirements according to regulatory requirements.
Executive summary:

The test item was tested for its acute oral toxicity potential. 5 male and 5 female rats were treated with doses of 1000, 3100 or 5000 mg/kg bw and observed for 14 days.

The median lethal dose of test item (LD50) was 3100 mg per kg body weight. Based on the result of this study the test substance is not subject for labelling and classification according to regulatory requirements.
