Description of key information

NOAEL was considered to be in the rang of 100-1300 mg/kg bw for tetrasodium 2-[[4-[[4-[(4-amino-6-chloro-1,3,5-triazin-2-yl)amino]-5-sulphonato-1-naphthyl]azo]-7-sulphonato-1-naphthyl]azo]benzene-1,4-disulphonate orally.

Thus, comparing this value with the criteria of CLP regulation tetrasodium 2-[[4-[[4-[(4-amino-6-chloro-1,3,5-triazin-2-yl)amino]-5-sulphonato-1-naphthyl]azo]-7-sulphonato-1-naphthyl]azo]benzene-1,4-disulphonate (70161 -16 -9) is not likely to classify as repeated dose toxicant.

Description (incidence and severity):
1.Scattered differences in mean organ weights between treated and control animals.A lower brain weight in females, compared with the control value, was the only difference affecting animals fed 1% test chemical.The relative brain weight of females fed 0.25% was higher than the control figure. Liver weights of female but not of male mice fed 0.25% were lower than control values, but again this was an isolated finding and there were no significant differences in relative liver weights. Kidney weights of male animals only were significantly lower than control values at the two lowest levels of treatment (0.1 and 0.25%), but a significant difference in relative kidney weights of males occurred only at the 0.5% level, at which a higher value was recorded for the treated mice. The only other significant differences occurred in the relative heart weights, which were raised in male mice fed 0.5% and in females fed 0.25%.The changes in organ weight showed no dose related effects. Moreover the isolated changes seen at the lower levels were not found in both sexes and were not evident when expressed relative to body weight. It is considered that these random findings were not associated with treatment.2. There were no consistent or dose-related differences between treated and control groups.
Gross pathological findings:
no effects observed
Description (incidence and severity):
2. In one female at the 300 mg/kg/day dose level and in two of each sex at the highest dose level (900 mg/kg/day), hard black nodules, 1-2 mm in diameter, were present in the mucosa of the ileum.

Description (incidence and severity):
1. Most of the tumours in the study occurred with either a comparable or a greater incidence in the control groups than in the treated mice.

Mammary fibroadenoma, a uterine fibromyoma, squamous-cell carcinoma were seen at different concentration.The frequency of histopathological findings in the treated animals did not differ significantly from those in the controls. Hence, no relationship was obvious between these findings and treatment with test chemical. Only in the case of adenomas of the lung and of the mammary tissue did more than one tumour of a given type occur among the treated animals of any group.

Executive summary:

Repeated dose toxicity:

Data available for the read across chemicals was reviewed to determine the reproductive toxicity of tetrasodium 2-[[4-[[4-[(4-amino-6-chloro-1,3,5-triazin-2-yl)amino]-5-sulphonato-1-naphthyl]azo]-7-sulphonato-1-naphthyl]azo]benzene-1,4-disulphonate (CAS no. 70161 -16 -9). The studies are as mentioned below:

Study 1:

Repeated dose toxicity test were performed on mice with test chemical in the concentrations of 0.1, 0.25, 0.5 or 1.0% (130,325,650,1300 mg/kg bw/d) for 80 wk. 30 males and 30 females was used for the treatment and group of 60 mice of each sex as control.

The general condition and behavior of the animals were observed frequently and any mouse that showed signs of ill-health was isolated, to be returned to its cage on recovery or to be killed if its condition deteriorated. The mice were weighed at the start of the experiment, at week 3 and then at intervals of 2 week until week 73 of the experiment. Blood sample were taken at week 28 and 55.At 80 week, blood samples were collected from the aorta of all surviving mice during the autopsy. For haematology blood samples were collected and for urine sample from 6-hr period from three groups of five mice of each sex from the controls and the groups on the two highest dietary levels of test chemical. Histopathology was also conducted.

There were no dose-related effects on body-weight gain, haematology or organ weights. The incidence of histopathological findings, including tumours, was not altered by the feeding of test chemical.

Therefore, the endpoint for the repeated dose toxicity was found to be NOAEL at 1 % (1300 mg/kg/day) concentration of test chemical to mice.

Study 2:

The repeated dose toxicity test was performed on pigs treated with test chemical at different concentration as 0 (control), 100, 300 and 900 mg/kg/day. Three litters each containing four male and four female 10-week-old Large White pigs from a minimal disease herd were used with diet Hi-lean Rearers Pencils fed in quantities of 0.5-1.5 lb/day according to the age of the animals. Water was available ad lib.

The pigs were weighed weekly. Haematological examinations, urine analysis, clinical chemistry, gross and histopathology were examined. There were no adverse effects on growth, haematology, urine analyses, serum transaminase activities or organ weights. Cysts containing mucus and fibrin were found in the mueosa of the ileum of four of the six pigs given the highest level of treatment and one of six given 300 mg/kg/day.

Therefore, theend point for the repeated dose toxicity was found to be NOEL at concentration 100 mg/kg/day when treated to pigs with test chemical.

Study 3:

In a Combined Repeated Dose Toxicity Study with the Reproduction / Developmental Toxicity Screening, Osborne-Mendel female rats were treated with test chemical in the concentration of 260.2 mg/kg body weight /day in distilled water by oral drinking water. No external signs of toxicity and animals were appeared healthy and behaved normally in treated groups as compared to control. No effects on maternal weight gain and significant decrease in water consumption were observed in treated female rats as compared to control. No significant effect on numbers of corpora lutea, implantations, early and late deaths and viable foetuses per litter or on the percentage of preimplantation loss was observed in treated group as compared to control. Similarly, no significant effect on percentage of early resorptions and percentage of females with more than one and with more than two resorptions were observed in treated rats as compared to control. In addition, No effect on live or dead foetuses and mean foetal body weight and percentage of males and females per treatment group were observed as compared to control. No external variations were observed in litters of treated dams as compared to control. No effect on Crown-rump length and Sex distribution were observed in litters of treated dams as compared to control. Slight increase in number of affected litters, number of bipartite sternebrae and reduced ossification of the parietal bone were observed in litters of treated dams as compared to control. But, the observed increases did not appear to be dose-related. Therefore, NOAEL was considered to be 260.2 mg/kg body weight /day when Osborne-Mendel female rats were treated with test chemical orally in Drinking water for 20 days.

Thus, Based on the data available for the read across chemical, No Observed Adverse Effect Level (NOAEL) was considered to be above 100 -1300 mg/kg bw . Thus, comparing this value with the criteria of CLP regulation tetrasodium 2-[[4-[[4-[(4-amino-6-chloro-1,3,5-triazin-2-yl)amino]-5-sulphonato-1-naphthyl]azo]-7-sulphonato-1-naphthyl]azo]benzene-1,4-disulphonate (70161 -16 -9) is not likely to classify as repeated dose toxicant.
