Any other information on results incl. tables

Control study N° TA0 -2014 -006 on Olive Oil used as the vehicule in the study.

The study was performed to assess the comportment of the strain of rat used at Phycher laboratory in its environment and to give additional historical data.

Performed from 08 July 2014 to 22 July 2014.

The method was designed to meet the requirements of the following:

- OECD guideline for the testing of chemicals N°423 dated December 17th, 2001

- Method B.1tris of the council regulation N°440/2008

Three animals received the control item Olive Oil, administered by gavage under a volume of 10 mL/kg body weight using a suitable syringe graduated fitted with an oesophageal metal canula.

No clinical signs, body weight changes nor treatment related changes were reported (3/3 animals normal)

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
Toxicity Category IV
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
The LD50 of the test item is higher than 300 mg/kg/bw and lower than 2000 mg/kg/bw by oral route in rats.
In accordance with the OECD guideline N°423, the LD50 cut-off of the test item may be considered as 1000 mg/kg/bw by oral route in the rat.

In accordance with the E.E.C directives 67/548, 2001/59 and 99/45, the test item must be classified R22 "harmful is swallowed". The symbol "Xn" and the warning label "Harmful" are required.
In accordant with the regulation EC 1272/2008, the test item must be classified in category 4. The signal word "Warning" and hazard statement H302 "Harmful is swallowed" are required.
Executive summary:

The test item Sepisol Fast Yellow MG-F was administered to a group of 3 female Sprague Dawley rats at the single dose of 2000 mg/kg/bw and then to a group of 6 females Sprague Dawley at the single dose of 300 mg/kg/bw. The experimental protocol was established according to the official method as defined in the OECD guideline No. 423 date December 17th, 2001, and the test method B.1tris of the Council regulation No. 440/2008.

It was noted the death of 2 rats treated at 2000 mg/kg/bw at 2 hrs 55 minutes post-dose (2/3).

Orange faeces and urine was noted during the 1st day of the test.

Rigor mortis was noted before the necropsy (2/2).

The macroscopic examination did not reveal treatment related changes (2/2).

In the surviving animal treated at 2000 mg/kg b.w. (1/3), orange faeces and urine was noted during the 1st day of the test.

The body weight evolution remained normal during the study.

The macroscopic examination of this animal at the end of the study did not reveal treatment related changes.

No mortality occured in animals treated at 300 mg/kg/bw.

No clinical signs related to the administration of the test item at 300mg/kg were observed during the study.

The body weight evolution remained normal during the study.

The macroscopic examination of the animals at the end of the study did not reveal teatment related changes.

In conclusion, the LD50 of the test item is higher the 300 mg/kg/bw and lower than 2000 mg/kg/bw by oral route in rats.

In accordance with the OECD guidelin No. 423, the LD50 cut-off ot the test item may be considered as 1000 mg/kg/bw by oral route in rats.

According to the criteria for classification, packaging and labelling of dangerous substances and preparations in accordance with the E.E.C directives 67/548, 2001/59 and 99/45, the test item must be classified R22 "Harmful is swallowed". The item must be characterised by the symbol "Xn" and the warning label "Harmful".

In accordance with the regulation EC No. 1272/2008, the test item must be classified in category 4. The signal word "Warning" and hazard statement H302 "Harmful is swallowed" are required.
