Mortality:
mortality observed, non-treatment-related
Description (incidence):
One female animal and its litter of the low dose group were sacrificed on Day 1 post partum because of prolapse of the left horn of the uterus.
Body weight and weight changes:
no effects observed
Food consumption and compound intake (if feeding study):
effects observed, treatment-related
Description (incidence and severity):
Food consumption:
- Males (all groups): comparable with the control group.
- Females (high dose 1000 mg/kg bw/day nominal): moderately reduced in the first days of dosing and during pre-mating and gestation.
- Females (medium and low dose 100 and 300 mg/kg bw/day nominal): slight decrease
- During the post partum period, food consumption was slightly reduced in all treated groups.
- During the recovery period, the fluctuations in food intake were considered normal and comparable with the control group.
The mean achieved dosages for the dosing period were found to be slightly lower than theoretical dose levels of 1000, 3000 and 10000 ppm. This discrepancy was due to a lower than expected food consumption. The achieved dosages in mg/kg bw/day, for each group, are presented in the attached tables.
Food efficiency:
not specified
Ophthalmological findings:

Haematological findings:
no effects observed
Clinical biochemistry findings:
effects observed, treatment-related
Description (incidence and severity):
Main study
Statistically significant fluctuations in some biochemical parameters were recorded generally in all treated groups of males and in the high dose group of females. Due to the low severity and/or the absence of dose-relation, the below findings were considered of no toxicological significance, however additional investigations were performed in the recovery phase.

Males
- decrease of potassium in males dosed at 1000 and 3000 ppm (9% and 8%, respectively)
- decrease of creatinine in males dosed at 3000 ppm (25%)
- increase of globulin in males receiving 3000 and 10000 ppm (10% and 15%, respectively)
- increase of phosphorus in those treated at 10000 ppm (23%)

Females
- triglycerides were increased in 2 females dosed at 3000 ppm and one female receiving 10000 ppm. (3.0 to 4.1 fold)
- decrease of aspartate aminotransferase in females dosed at 10000 ppm (39%)
- decrease of creatinine in females dosed at 10000 ppm (13%)
- increase in bile acids in 2 females treated at 10000 ppm (2.2 and 3.7 fold)

Recovery phase
Creatinine was lower than controls in treated males (23%), these changes were considered to be of no toxicological importance, as values were higher when compared to the dosing phase. The other statistically significant differences between control and treated animals (urea and potassium in males) were not observed during the dosing phase, therefore they were considered unrelated to treatment.

Histopathological findings: non-neoplastic:
effects observed, non-treatment-related
Description (incidence and severity):
Sporadic lesions were reported in control and treated animals in main and recovery phase. These effects were considered to be an expression of spontaneous/or incidental pathology or physiological changes, seen in this species and age in this kind of studies and in our experimental conditions.
Histopathological findings: neoplastic:
effects observed, non-treatment-related
Description (incidence and severity):
An adenocarcinoma was found in the mammary gland of a single treated female. This was considered to be an expression of spontaneous/or incidental pathology and non treatment related.
Reproductive function: oestrous cycle:
no effects observed
Reproductive function: sperm measures:
no effects observed
Reproductive performance:
effects observed, treatment-related
Description (incidence and severity):
Oestrous cycle and reproductive parameters (pre-coital intervals, copulatory and fertility indices) were similar in treated and control groups.
However, a decrease in live litter size at birth and on Days 1 and 4 post partum were observed in mid and high dose group females:
- Mid dose: at birth (-24%) and on Days 1 and 4 post partum (-27% and -28%, respectively)
- High dose: at birth (-15%) and on Days 1 and 4 post partum (-16% and -17%, respectively)
Also a statistically significant reduction in total litter size at birth was noted in the mid- and high groups (-24% and -15%, respectively). In the same dose groups, decrease in corpora lutea and implantation sites (-20% and -13% in the mid- and high dose levels for both parameters) were noted with no statistical significance.

Executive summary:

The toxic effects on Sprague Dawley rats after oral repeated dosing (feeding study) with Citronella oil (Cymbopogon winterianus), was investigated according to OECD TG 422, under GLP. The experiment was performed with 10 rats per dose per sex, including a 2 week recovery period. The tested dietary doses corresponded to 1000, 3000 and 10000 ppm (nominal doses: 100, 300 and 1000 mg/kg bw/day). Males were fed with medicated diet for 2 weeks prior to pairing, during pairing with females and until necropsy, for a total of 28 days. Animals of the recovery groups were treated for a total of 4 consecutive weeks and sacrificed after 2 weeks of recovery. Females were fed with medicated diet for 2 weeks prior to pairing, during pairing and throughout the gestation and lactation periods until day 3 post-partum, for at least 41 days. The following parameters were evaluated: mortality, clinical signs (including neurotoxicity assessment, motor activity, grip strength and sensory reaction to stimuli), body weight, food consumption, oestrous cycle, clinical pathology investigations (haematology and clinical chemistry), litter data, macroscopic observations, organ weights and histopathological examination. The identification of the stages of the spermatogenic cycle was performed in five randomly selected males of the control and high dose groups.

 

During the in vivo phase of the study, no relevant clinical signs, neurotoxic or behavioural signs were observed in any treated main animals of both sexes. Body weight as well as body weight gain of treated males did not show differences of toxicological significance throughout the study. Body weight of females did not show differences of toxicological significance (prior to pairing). The food consumption, in male animals of all groups, was generally comparable with the control group. The food consumption, in female animals was moderately reduced in the first days of dosing in the high dose group while a slight decrease was noted in the other two treatment groups. The food consumption normalised during the recovery period. No adverse findings were recorded in clinical pathology investigations. No toxicological relevance was attributed to an observed slight reduction noted in terminal body weight of treated males and females. The variations in organ weights noted were considered unrelated to treatment since they were not associated with histopathological findings. No treatment-related macroscopic and microscopic changes were noted. Reproductive effects were observed in the litters of the mid and high dose groups. A significant decrease in live litter size at birth and on Days 1 and 4 post were observed in the mid and high dose group, when compared to control group. Based on these results, the NOAEL for reproductive and developmental toxicity was considered to be 708 mg/kg bw/day for males and 88 mg/kg bw/day for females (achieved doses).

Body weight of females did not show differences of toxicological significance (prior to pairing). The food consumption, in male animals of all groups, was generally comparable with the control group. The food consumption, in female animals was moderately reduced in the first days of dosing in the high dose group while a slight decrease was noted in the other two treatment groups. The food consumption normalised during the recovery period. No adverse findings were recorded in clinical pathology investigations. No toxicological relevance was attributed to an observed slight reduction noted in terminal body weight of treated males and females. The variations in organ weights noted were considered unrelated to treatment since they were not associated with histopathological findings. No treatment-related macroscopic and microscopic changes were noted. Reproductive effects were observed in the litters of the mid and high dose groups. A significant decrease in live litter size at birth and on Days 1 and 4 post were observed in the mid and high dose group, when compared to control group. Based on these results, the NOAEL for reproductive and developmental toxicity was considered to be 708 mg/kg bw/day for males and 88 mg/kg bw/day for females (achieved doses).
