Clinical Observations and General Appearance:
Animals were observed for clinical signs, mortality and morbidity, until sacrifice.
Onset, duration and severity of any sign were recorded. The clinical signs and mortality observations were conducted at immediately (0 to 5 minutes), 5, 10, 30, 60 minutes, 2, 4 and 6 hours on the day of dosing and once daily therea fter for 14 day. Daily observation was done as far as possible at the same time.

Body weights:
Individual animal body weights were recorded, before fasting, prior to administration of the test item (fasting body weights), weekly thereafter and at termination on day 14. Weight changes were calculated and recorded.

Gross Pathology:
Necropsy was performed on all animals at the end of the study period on day 15. Macroscopic examination of all the orifices, cavities and tissues were made and the findings were recorded. All animals surviving the study period were sacrificed by the carbon dioxide asphyxiation technique.

Histopathology:
No gross abnormalities were observed in animals sacrificed terminally hence, no histopathology was performed.
Statistics:
No data

Remarks on result:
other: no mortality was observed
Mortality:
All animals treated at the dose level of 300 mg/kg body weight and 2000mg/kg body weight survived through the study period of 14 days.
Clinical signs:
Group I
Step I :
Animals treated at the dose level of 300 mg/kg body weight did not result in any signs of toxicity during the study period of 14 days.

Group I
Step II :
Animals treated at the dose level of 300 mg/kg body weight did not result in any signs of toxicity during the study period of 14 days.

Group II
Step I :
Animals treated at the dose level of 2000 mg/kg body weight resulted in diarrhoea (black colour stools) in all animals with onset at 2 hours after the dosing. All animals survived through the study period of 14 days and were free of signs of toxicity on day 1 after the dosing.

Group II
Step II :
Animals treated at the dose level of 2000 mg/kg body weight resulted in diarrhoea (black colour stools) in all animals with onset at 4 hours after the dosing. All animals survived through the study period of 14 days and were free of signs of toxicity on day 1 after the dosing.

Staining of the stool is attributed to the black colour of the test item.
Body weight:
Group I
Step I (300 mg/kg) - Percent body weight gain after 7 days and 14 days was found to be 4.45% and 12.76% respectively.

Group I
Step II (300 mg/kg) - Percent body weight gain after 7 days and 14 days was found to be 3.56% and 12.49% respectively.

Group II
Step II (2000 mg/kg) - Percent body weight gain after 7 days and 14 days was found to be 2.17% and 9.86% respectively.
Gross pathology:
Gross pathological examination did not reveal any abnormalities in animals from 300 mg/kg and 2000 mg/kg dose groups.
Other findings:
No data

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
other: not classified
Conclusions:
The lethal concentration (LD50) value for acute oral toxicity test was considered to be 5000 mg/kg bw,when female Sprague Dawley rats were treated with Tetra sodium 1-acetamido-2-hydroxy-3-(4-((4-sulphonatophenylazo)-7-sulphonato-1-naphthylazo))naphthalene-4,6-disulphonate (CAS No. 2519-30-4) orally via gavage following 14 days of observation period according to OECD Guideline 423 (Acute Oral toxicity - Acute Toxic Class Method).
Executive summary:

Acute oral toxicity study was done infemale Sprague Dawleyrats using test materialTetra sodium 1-acetamido-2-hydroxy-3-(4-((4-sulphonatophenylazo)-7-sulphonato-1-naphthylazo))naphthalene-4,6-disulphonate (CAS No. 2519-30-4).Distilled water was used as vehicle.Initially, three female animals were treated at the dose level of 300 mg/kg body weight of the test item (Step - I). Administration of the test item at 300 mg/kg did not result in any signs of toxicity and mortality at 24 hours after the dosing. As no mortality was observed at 24 hours after the dosing, three female animals were added to the study and treated with the same dose of 300 mg/kg of the test item (Step - II). Administration of the test item at 300 mg/kg did not result in any signs of toxicity and mortality after the dosing. No mortality was observed at 300 mg/kg dose group, hence additional three female animals were treated with the higher dose of 2000 mg/kg of the test item (Step - I). Administration of the test item at 2000 mg/kg resulted in diarrhoea (black colour stools) in all animals with onset at 2 hours and no mortality after the dosing. As no mortality were observed at 24 hours after the dosing, hence additional three female animals were treated with the higher dose of 2000 mg/kg of the test item (Step - II). Administration of the test item at 2000 mg/kg resulted in diarrhoea (black colour stools) in all animals with onset at 4 hours and no mortality after the dosing. All animals from 300 mg/kg and 2000 mg/kg dose groups survived through the study period of 14 days. Staining of the stool is attributed to the black colour of the test item. Gross pathological examination did not reveal any abnormalities in animals from 300 mg/kg and 2000 mg/kg dose groups.Hence,LD50 value was considered to be5000 mg/kg bw,whenfemale Sprague Dawleyrats were treated withTetra sodium 1-acetamido-2-hydroxy-3-(4-((4-sulphonatophenylazo)-7-sulphonato-1-naphthylazo))naphthalene-4,6-disulphonate (CAS No. 2519-30-4)orally via gavage following 14 days of observation period according to OECD Guideline 423 (Acute Oral toxicity - Acute Toxic Class Method).
