Executive summary:

In an acute oral toxicity study performed according to the OECD Guideline 423 and in compliance with GLP, a single dose of 2000 mg/kg bw of the test substance solubilized in olive oil and heated during 5 minutes at ca. 50°C was given by oral gavage to a group of 6 female Sprague Dawley rats. Animals were then observed for mortality, clinical signs and body weight changes for 14 days, and were all sacrificed for macroscopic examinations.

No mortality occurred during the study. No clinical signs related to the administration of the test item were observed during the study The body weight evolution of the animals remained normal throughout the study. The macroscopic examination of the animals at the end of the study did not reveal treatment related changes.

Acute toxicity: oral

In an acute oral toxicity study performed according to the OECD Guideline 423 and in compliance with GLP, a single dose of 2000 mg/kg bw of the test substance solubilized in olive oil and heated during 5 minutes at ca. 50°C was given by oral gavage to a group of 6 female Sprague Dawley rats. Animals were then observed for mortality, clinical signs and body weight changes for 14 days, and were all sacrificed for macroscopic examinations.

No mortality occurred during the study. No clinical signs related to the administration of the test item were observed during the study The body weight evolution of the animals remained normal throughout the study. The macroscopic examination of the animals at the end of the study did not reveal treatment related changes.

Rat Oral LD50 (Female) >2000 mg/kg bw.

Under the test conditions, the oral LD50 of the test substance is >2000 mg/kg bw in rats. In accordance with OECD Guideline 423, the LD50 cut-off of the test substance may be considered to be higher than 5000 mg/kg bw by oral route in the rat.

Acute oral toxicity:

In an acute oral toxicity study performed according to OECD Guideline 420 and in compliance with GLP, groups (5 females/dose) of Wistar (RccHan™:WIST) rats were given a single oral (gavage) dose of test item at 2000 mg/kg bw. Animals were then observed for mortality, clinical signs and bodyweights for 14 days and at the end of the study the surviving animals were sacrificed for macroscopic examination. Sighting study was conducted at the dose levels of 300 and 2000 mg/kg bw (one female/dose) to determine the dose for main study.

 

In the sighting study, no mortality or clinical signs were observed at 300 mg/kg bw. The animal showed expected gains in body weight over the observation period. No abnormalities were noted at necropsy. In the main study, no mortality or clinical signs were observed at 2000 mg/kg bw. All animals showed expected gains in body weight over the observation period. No abnormalities were noted at necropsy.
