This data is being read across from the source study that tested Hydrocarbons, C9, aromatics based on analogue read across.
This study examined the effects of 12 months of inhalation exposure of rats to a commercial mixture of C9 Aromatics. Male and female rats were exposed to concentrations of 450, 900, or 1800 mg/m³ 6 hrs/day, 5 days/week, for up to 12 months. Some of the rats were sacrificed at 26 weeks, others at 12 months, and others after a 4 month recovery period after the end of the 12 month exposure. Animals were examined for clinical signs and behaviour twice daily, and weighed weekly for the first 4 weeks, and monthly thereafter. After sacrifice, the animals were examined for clinical chemistry, hematology, urine analysis, gross pathology, histopathology, and organ weights.
No deaths attributable to exposure to the test substance occurred. There was depressed weight during the first few months of the experiment in medium (900 mg/m³) and high dose males (1800 mg/m³). However, the animals quickly recovered and this effect is not considered biologically significant. High dose females (1800 mg/m³) had depressed weight gain for the first 3 months of exposure, but recovered in subsequent months and in the satellite recovery group. No other adverse effects attributable to exposure to the test substance were seen.
Based on the reversibility of the reduced weight gain and the lack of any noted pathology, the NOAEC for male rats was 1800 mg/m³ and the NOAEC for female rats was 900 mg/m3.
