Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
not classified
Migrated informationCriteria used for interpretation of results: EU
The acute dermal LD50 of the test item Rosin fumarated, CAS No. 65997-04-8 is higher than 2000 mg/kg body weight.
Executive summary:

The acute dermal toxicity of Rosin fumarated was evaluated using 5 male and 5 female Sprague Dawley rats. The fur was removed from the dorsal area of the trunk of the animals by clipping and a dose of 2000 mg/kg body weight was applied onto the 10% of the clear skin for 24 hrs. The treated area was covered by a semi-occlusive dressing consisting of a gauze patches hydrophilic, which was held in contact with the skin by means od 50 mm wide hypoallergenic micropore adhesive tape. After 24 hrs exposure, the gauze was removed and the treated area was rinsed with dimethyl sulfoxide.

The animals were observed for 24 hrs. Signs of toxicity and behavioural effect were recorded daily, while weight gain was recorded at D0, D2, D7 and D14. No mortality occurred during the study. The results showed no signs of toxicity related to the administration of the test material. Erythema and yellow coloration of the treated area were noted from 24 hrs post-dose in all animals and were totally reversible on D8. No change in body weight was recorded and macroscopic examination did not show any treatment related changes.

In conclusion, the LD50 of Rosin fumarated is higher than 2000 mg/kg body weight.
