Test animals

Species:
rat
Strain:
Sprague-Dawley
Sex:
male/female
Details on test animals or test system and environmental conditions:
The outbred Sprague-Dawley Rat, weighing 200-300 grams and approximately 8 weeks of age, was used for this study.
The animals were housed and maintained in compliance with the Animal Welfare Act (Pub. L-94-279) 9 CFR Part 3. The rats were not used in any previous study and were acclimated to the laboratory for at least 5 days prior to dosing.
Rats were deprived of food but not water overnight prior to dosing.

The animals were randomized using a computer generated list of random numbers. They were individually identified by ear punch.
Each cage was identified with a cage card displaying the animal numbers, sex, project number, test article, date dosed, dose level and responsible technician's initials .

Husbandry Conditions:
Temperature - 72°F ~ 2°F
Relative Humidity - 45% ~ 5%
Light - 12 hour light/dark cycle
Diet - Wayne Lab-Blox and tap water were provided ad libitum .
Based on our current knowledge no contaminants were known to be in this diet or water that might be expected to interfere with the objectives of the study.

Caging - Stainless steel with elevated wire mesh flooring
3-5 rats/cage by sex

Bedding - Techboard

Results and discussion

Effect levels
Sex:
male/female
Dose descriptor:
LD50
Effect level:
> 5 000 mg/kg bw

Clinical signs:
Within 3 hours the animals were prostrate and ruffled. They appeared recovered within 24 hours.
They continued to remain normal throughout the observation period.

Gross pathologic examination revealed nothing remarkable.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
practically nontoxic
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
The acute oral lethal dose was tested to be > 5000 mg/kg bw in both male and female rats.
Executive summary:

The sample was dosed as a 25% w/v suspension in deionized water.

One group of ten (5 male & 5 female) albino rats was deprived of food but not water overnight prior to dosing.

The following dosage level was administered:

5.0 g/kg

Animals were observed frequently on the day of dosage, and twice per day thereafter (morning and afternoon). Individual weights

were recorded on the day of dosage, weekly thereafter, and prior to sacrifice.

Gross autopsies were performed on all survivors of the 14 day observation period.

The subject material when studied in male and female albino rats has an acute oral LD50 greater than 5000 mg/kg.
