Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
other: not classified
Conclusions:
The lethal concentration (LD50) value for acute oral toxicity test was considered to be 3710 mg/kg bw,when rats were treated with d-Carvone (2244-16-8) orally.
Executive summary:

Acute oral toxicity study was done in rats using test materiald-Carvone(2244-16-8).50% Mortality was observed at dose 3710 mg/kg bw. Hence,LD50 value was considered to be 3710 mg/kg bw,when rats were treated with d-Carvone(2244-16-8) orally.
