Administration / exposure

Route of administration:
oral: gavage
Vehicle:
corn oil
Details on oral exposure:
PREPARATION OF DOSING SOLUTIONS:
A given amount of the test substance is mixed with an appropriate volume of vehicle (corn oil) to
achieve three different concentrations (15. 50 and 150 mg/kg b.w.) on each day prior to the
administration of the test substance.

VEHICLE
- Justification for use and choice of vehicle (if other than water): corn oil was a suitable vehicle
- Amount of vehicle (if gavage): Administration volume was maintained as 10 mL/kg b.w.
Analytical verification of doses or concentrations:
yes
Details on analytical verification of doses or concentrations:
The analytical method describes the determination of active content in C-SAT 070058 in corn oil.
The test sample was dissolved in 25 ml petroleum ether and partitioned with 25 ml acetonitrile
thrice. To the acetonitrile layer approximately 350 ml of 3% sodium chloride solution was added
and partitioned with 25 ml hexane thrice. Concentrated to near dryness and suitably diluted with
mobile phase, so as to fit with dynamic calibration curve. The samples were quantified by linear
regression method.
The linearity of the test procedure, its ability within a gtven range to obtain test results
proportional to the concentration of the analyte in the sample, is confinned by the correlation
co-efficient (CC) of 0.999927.

CLINICAL SIGNS AND MORTALITY
No morbidity/mortality was observed in any of the animals from the control or treatment groups.
None of the animals from any group showed any clinical signs of toxicity during the treatment or the post treatment period.

BODY WEIGHT AND WEIGHT GAIN
All animals were weighed on a weekly basis during treatment ( 13 weeks) and/or the post treatment (13-17weeks) period.
All males of the main dose groups (G2, G3 and G4) did not show statistically significant changes when compared to the vehicle control (G1).
The male satellite high dose group (G6) showed a statistically significant decrease from week 9 onwards up to week 13 when compared to the satellite vehicle control (G5). This effect was not observed in the main dose groups hence it was considered not to be treatment related.
Females of the intermediate dose group (G3) showed a statistically significant decrease in the last week (week 13) and females of the high dose group (G4) showed a statistically significant decrease during the last three weeks (1 0, 12 and 13) when compared to the vehicle control (G1 ). Since the body weight of intermediate group (G3) on week 13 was comparable with the untreated control groups (G7 and G8) on week 13, the effect was not considered to be adverse. Further, the effect observed in the high dose group (G4), was not noted in the satellite high dose group (G6). Hence this effect was not considered to be dose related.

FOOD CONSUMPTION
Food consumption was recorded cage wise daily and reported on a weekly basis. There were no statistically significant changes observed in any of the groups

OPHTHALMOSCOPIC EXAMINATION
None of the animals revealed ocular lesions in any of the groups.

HAEMATOLOGY
Day 1 (Pre-treatment)
In male. a statistically significant decrease was observed in eosinophil in groups G2 and G3 and an increase in basophils in group G3 when compared with the vehicle control (G1). The satellite high dose group (G6) showed a statistically significant increase in MCHC and a decrease in leucocytes when compared with the satellite vehicle control (G5). In females, a statistically significant decrease was observed in WBC of groups G2 and G4 and an increase in neutrophils in G4 when compared to the vehicle control (G1). Although the mean values were statistically significant, the values were well with in the normal range.

Day 91 (Termination of treatment)
In males, no statistical significant changes were observed in the main dose groups (G2, G3 and G4) when compared with the vehicle control (G1). A statistically significant decrease was observed in Hb, HCT, neutrophils and an increase in MCHC and lymphocytes of the satellite high dose group
(G6) when compared with the satellite vehicle control (G5).
Since this effect was not observed in the main dose groups it was considered not to be treatment related.
In females of the high dose group (G4), a statistically significant increase was observed in neutrophils and an increase was observed in lymphocytes when compared with the vehicle control (G1).
Since this effect was not observed in the satellite dose groups it was considered not to be treatment related.
Day 119 (Termination of post treatment) (G5 and G6 only)
There were no statistically significant changes observed in both satellite groups (G5 and G6).

CLINICAL CHEMISTRY
Day 1 (Pre-treatment)
In males, no statistical significant changes were observed in all dose groups.
In females, a statistically significant decrease was observed for triglycerides of groups, G2, G3 and G4 and an increase in ALT of groups G2 and G3 when compared with the vehicle control (G1). Although group mean values differed statistically, they were in the normal range for the species.
Similarly, a statistically significant decrease was observed in ALP and calcium in satellite high dose group G6 when compared with the satellite vehicle control (G5).
Although the mean values were statistically significant they are comparable with the control values (G7 & G8).

Day 91 (Termination of treatment)
In males, no statistically significant changes were observed in the main dose groups G2, G3 and G4 when compared to the vehicle control (G1). However, a statistically significant decrease was observed in total protein and sodium levels of the satellite high dose group (G6) when compared to
the satellite vehicle control (G5). A recovery was observed in the values of sodium. Although the mean values were statistically significant they were comparable with the untreated control group values (G7 & G8) and hence were not considered to the treatment related.
In females. a statistically significant increase was observed in urea. BUN in the main dose groups G2, G3 and G4 and a decrease in ALP in the high dose group (G4) when compared to the vehicle control (G1). Similarly, a statistically significant decrease was observed tor calcium in the satellite high dose group (G6) when compared to the satellite vehicle control (G5). Although the mean values were statistically significant they were comparable with the control values (G7 & G8) and hence was not considered to the treatment related.

Day 119 (Termination of post treatment) (G5 and G6 only)
In males, a statistically significant decrease was observed for urea, BUN, triglycerides, ALP, total protein and calcium of the satellite high dose group (06) when compared to the satellite vehicle control (G5).
Although group mean values differed statistically for parameters mentioned above, they were in the normal range for the species and were not dose related. Hence, these changes were considered to be not test substance related and have no toxicological importance.
In females, no statistical significant changes were observed in any of the parameters.

URINALYSIS
Urinalysis data did not show any changes in the composition ofurine in any of the treated groups except in females of the intermediate dose group (G3) on day 1. Since this effect was not observed in any of the treatment groups, it was not considered to be biologically adverse.

NEUROBEHAVIOUR
Day 0 (Pre-treatment)
In males, a statistically significant increase in the activity level (LAH and LAV) was observed in the satellite high dose group (G6) when compared to the vehicle satellite control (G5). A statistically significant increase in the auditory response for amplitude I (90db) was recorded in both intermediate
(G3) and high dose (G4) groups when compared to the vehicle control group (G1). Similarly, a statistically significant increase was observed for the auditory response at amplitude III (120 db) in the high dose satellite groups (G6) when compared to the satellite vehicle control (G5)
In females, statistically significant increase in foot splay, LAH and LAV was recorded for the satellite high dose group (G6) when compared to the satellite vehicle control (G5). A statistically significant increase in body temperature was recorded in the intermediate dose (G3) group when
compared to the vehicle control (G1).
Day 90 (Termination of treatment)
A statistically significant increase in the activity level (LAV) of high dose group males (G4) was recorded, and similarly in the intermediate and low dose group females G2 and G3) when compared to the vehicle control (G1). A statistically significant decrease in auditory response was recorded for
the satellite high dose group males (G6) at amplitude I (90decibels) and amplitude II (105 decibels) when compared to the satellite vehicle control (G5).
Although group mean values differed statistically for parameters mentioned above, the values were comparable to the control animals (G7 & G8). Hence, these changes were considered to be not test substance related and have no toxicological importance.
Day liS (Termination of post treatment, G5 and G6 only)
There were no statistically significant changes observed in any of the FOB parameters.

ORGAN WEIGHTS
In males, there were no statistically significant changes in both relative and absolute organ weights in any of the groups.
In females, a statistically significant increase was observed for relative organ weights of brain and adrenals in the high dose group (G4), and a statistically significant increase in absolute organ weights of adrenals and spleen in the high dose group (G4) when compared to the vehicle control (G1).
Since these effects were not observed in satellite groups and not correlated with microscopic findings, they were not considered to be treatment related.

GROSS PATHOLOGY
Recurrent lesions were observed in thymus (multifocal red spots), mandibular and cervical lymphnodes (enlarged and reddish) in all the groups including vehicle control and untreated control animals. There were no statistically significant differences between the groups.
All other macroscopic findings were either spontaneous or incidental and of the type routinely observed in Wistar rats of this age.
No test substance related gross pathological findings were observed.

HISTOPATHOLOGY
A statistically significant recurrence of pancreatic hemorrhage was observed in high dose group (G4) females. All microscopic findings were spontaneous, incidental and are usually observed in Wistar rats of this age.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
As no treatment related adverse effects were observed in a GLP study according to OECD test guideline 408, the NOAEL for repeated dose 90-days oral toxicity of the test substance, which is a close homologue of the registered substance, was determined to be 150 mg/kg bodyweight.
Executive summary:

The registered substance has been tested using the OECD 408 protocol. The study was performed under GLP.Ten male/female Wistar rats received either 15, 50 or 150 mg/kg bw or a control by gavage for 90 days. Clinical signs, food consumption, body weight, gross necropsy, opthalmoscopy, clinical chemistry, haematology, urinalysis and histopathology were recorded as required by OECD 408. Furthermore, a functional observation battery was included in the study. No treatment related adverse effects were observed up the highest applied dose. NOAEL of the test substance for repeated dose 90 -days oral toxicity was 150 mg/kg bodyweight.No treatment related adverse effects were observed up to the highest dose tested. The NOAEL of the test substance for repeated dose 90-days oral toxicity was 150 mg/kg bodyweight. The result for this close homologue substance was taken as a read across result for the registered substance.

Consequently, the registered substance has not to be labelled with regard to its subchronic toxicity.
