Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
practically nontoxic
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
The LD50 of Ceraphyl 41 for rats is more than 10 times higher than the maximum limit for classification of 2000 mg/kg bw .
Executive summary:

The acute oral LD50 of CERAPHYL® 41 was 21 ml/kg bodyweight in rats. Twenty five Wistar albino rats (3 male, 2 female/group) were dosed orally with CERAPHYL® 41 at 2.5, 5, 10, 20 and 40 ml/kg bodyweight. Animals were observed daily for mortality for 14 days. Four animals in the 40 ml/kg group died. One animal in the 10 ml/kg group died.
