Any other information on results incl. tables

The prediction was based on dataset comprised from the following descriptors: LOAEL
Estimation method: Takes average value from the 5 nearest neighbours
Domain logical expression: Result: Out of Domain

("a" and ("b" and "c" ) )

Domain logical expression index: "a"

Referential boundary: The target chemical should be classified as Epoxides by US-EPA New Chemical Categories

Domain logical expression index: "b"

Parametric boundary:The target chemical should have a value of log Kow which is >= 0.626

Domain logical expression index: "c"

Parametric boundary:The target chemical should have a value of log Kow which is <= 0.626

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
Epychlorohydrin caused reduced male fertility with histopathological changes in the testis and epididymidis and therefore reproductive adverse effects of the target substance cannot be ruled out. However, the read-across substance epichlorohydrin is not classified officially as toxic to reproduction therefore no decision on classification and labelling for reproductive toxicity can be assigned to the target chemical GE-100 based on this data.
Executive summary:

The target chemical was profiled as "Epoxides" by the "US EPA New Chemical Categories". Common properties of epoxides are high reactivity, cytotoxicity, and high probability of mutagenic potential and/or carcinogenicity. Therefore chemicals with the same profiling result have been retrieved from the database. The chemicals containing other chemical elements in their structure and/or other organic functional groups were considered dissimilar to the target chemical and have been removed from the domain.

The target chemical is obtained by the reaction of epichlorohydrin with glycerol. Therefore, epichlorohydrin is considered to be a suitable candidate for read-across. Moreover, its profiling results regarding binding to proteins and to DNA (properties which are likely responsible for reproductive toxicity) are similar to those of the target.

Epichlorohydrin caused reduced male fertility and an increase in the incidence of histopathological changes of the testis and epididymidis and therefore reproductive adverse effects of the target chemical cannot be ruled out as well.
