Additional information

The study was designed to investigate the systemic toxicity and potential adverse effects of the test item on reproduction (including offspring development) and is compatible with the requirements of the OECD Guidelines for Testing of Chemicals No. 422 “Combined Repeated Dose Toxicity Study with the Reproduction/Developmental Toxicity Screening Test” (adopted 22 March 1996).

No mortality was recorded in any sex. No test-item-related differences from the control group were recorded in males. No test item-related alterations were recorded.

Justification for classification or non-classification
