Results and discussion

Any other information on results incl. tables

No MPCE in males up to 750 mg/kg bw/d, slightly positive in females at 750 mg/kg bw/day, not considered positive due to a low MPCE in the corresponding control female, compared to the other groups tested, including controls of positive controls 6 -MP and cyclophosphamide.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
Interpretation of results (migrated information): negative
In a 1'-day toxicological study in rats, ASA did not induced micronucleus up to 750 mg/kg/day.
Executive summary:

A study combined a 14 -day toxicological study in rats with final examination of micronuclei in bone marrow erythrocytes. The resulst were negative and in line with existing literature ( MacGegor, 1990).
