170 Sprague-Dawley rats were used to test the subchronic toxicity of PCBTF in F1 rats following in utero exposure. Rats were divided randomly into 4 treatment groups: Group I (control), Group II (5 mg/kg/day), Group III (15 mg/kg/day), Group IV ( 45 mg/kg/day). Rats were dosed in 2 mL/kg body weight volumes via gavage with test solutions of varying concentrations for each dosage. Test material was administered to the parental (F0) rats for 76 to 83 days. F0 rats were killed and subjected to a gross necropsy. Weanling F1 rats were dosed for at least 90 days, then killed and necropsied.
Throughout the study, weekly feed consumption and body weights were recorded; new doses were calculated weekly on the basis of current body weights. Clinical pathology parameters were obtained predose on baseline animals, after 14 days treatment of F0 rats, and terminally on F1 animals, and selected organ weights were recorded. Organ/body weight ratios were calculated. Statistical aualysis were perfomed on all tested measurable parameters. Clinical observations, clinical pathology parameters, and histopathology examinations showed no treatment related abnormalities.
A trend was observed in main liver weights and mean liver/body weight ratios among treatment groups. The effects seen were a physiologic response of this organ to PCBTF. The increased metabolic response did not reflect necessarily a toxic response to the test material. No other treatment related effects were observed. Under the conditions of the test, the test item PCBTF was found to be safe at all levels. A toxic no-effect level in rats was greater than or equal to 45 mg/kg.
