Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
Category 4 based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
LD50 was considered to be 951 mg/kg bw with confidential limit of 677-1336 mg/kg, when rat was treated with 3-aminopropylmethylamine orally.
Executive summary:

In a acute oral toxicity study, rat were treated with (3-aminopropyl)(methyl)amine orally. 50% mortality was observed in treated rats at 951 mg/kg bw. Hematuria and blood in urine was observed in treated rats, probably resulting from the ulcerative effect of the compound. Therefore, LD50 was considered to be 951 mg/kg bw with confidential limit of 677-1336 mg/kg, when rat was treated with 3-aminopropylmethylamine orally.
