The LD50 of the test substance is greater than 2000 mg/kg bw by the dermal route in male and female rats.
In an acute dermal toxicity study, a group of five male and five female rats was administered a single dose of Gum Rosin topically, under porous gauze dressing, at a dose level of 2000 mg/kg bw in a dimethylsulfoxide vehicle for an exposure period of 24 hours. Under the conditions of this study, the dermal LD50 of Gum Rosin in male and female Sprague-Dawley rats was > 2000 mg/kg bw. No mortality was observed in the study and, after an absence of body weight gain was noted in all males and females on Day 2, the animals recovered and gained weight normally over the rest of the study period. No systemic clinical signs related to the administration of the test substance were observed. Other than a slight dryness to dryness noted at the treatment site of one or more animals at various times during the study, there were no signs of irritation, necrosis, ulceration or evidence of tissue destruction reported. At necropsy, no gross lesions were observed. Based on the results of this study, Gum Rosin is not acutely toxic to rats via the dermal route and therefore is expected to present a low toxicity hazard upon skin contact under conditions of normal use.
