Results and discussion

Effect levels
Dose descriptor:
Effect level:
> 2 000 mg/kg bw
All animals survived.
Clinical signs:
Slightly ruffled fur was noted in three animals from 1 - 5 hours after dosing. All six animals were found in a hunched posture from either 2 - 5 or 2- 3 hours after dosing. There were no abnormal clinical signs in any animals on Day 2 or through the remainder of the study.
Body weight:
Animal body weights were within the range commonly recorded for this strain and age.
Gross pathology:
No macroscopic findings were recorded at necropsy.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
practically nontoxic
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: OECD GHS
Based on the results of this study, the acute oral LD50 of MTDID 8191 is >2000 mg/kg in rats.
Executive summary:

OBJECTIVE: The acute oral toxicity potential of MTDID 8191 (lot FC 03/167) was tested in female Wistar rats.

METHODS: This test was compliant with Swiss GLP (2005) and OECD GLP (1997). The stability of the diluted test article and the acclimation of the animals were excluded from the GLP statement. This study was performed in accordance with Directive 2004/73/EC, B.1 "Acute Oral Toxicity-Acute Toxic Class Method” (2004) and OECD 423 "Acute Oral Toxicity – Acute Toxic Class Method" (2001). Two groups of fasted HanRcc:WIST (SPF) rats (three females/group) were treated with MTDID 8191 by oral gavage administration at a dosage of 2000 mg/kg body weight. The test item was diluted in vehicle (PEG 300) at a concentration of 0.2 g/mL and administered at a dosing volume of 10 mL/kg. The test animals were examined daily during the acclimatization period and mortality, viability and clinical signs were recorded. All animals were examined for clinical signs at approximately 30 minutes, and 1, 2, 3 and 5 hours after dosing on day 1 and once daily during test days 2-15. Mortality/viability was recorded at approximately 30 minutes, 1, 2, 3 and 5 hours after administration on test day 1 (with the clinical signs) and twice daily during days 2-15. Body weights were recorded prior to administration on day 1 and on study days 8 and 15. All animals were necropsied and examined macroscopically at study termination.

RESULTS: All animals survived until the end of the study period. All six treated animals had clinical signs of toxicity (e.g., hunched posture, ruffled fur) on the day of dosing. No clinical signs were observed in any animal from day 2 through the end of the observation period. The body weights of the animals were within the range commonly recorded for the strain and age used in the study. No macroscopic findings were recorded at necropsy.

CONCLUSION: Based on the results of this study, the rat acute oral LD50 of MTDID 8191 is greater than 2000 mg/kg body weight.
