Vehicle:
other: distilled water containing 0.5% carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) and 0.1% polysorbate 80
Details on oral exposure:
MAXIMUM DOSE VOLUME APPLIED: 10 ml/kg bw
Doses:
5000 mg/kg bw
No. of animals per sex per dose:
5 males and 5 females
Control animals:
no
Details on study design:
- Duration of observation period following administration: 14 days
- Frequency of observations and weighing: Mortality, signs and symptoms daily. Body weight at start, on day 7, and on day 14
- Necropsy of survivors performed: yes

Statistics:
From the body weights, the group means and their standard deviations were calculated. Where feasable, the LD50 including the 95% confidence limit were computed by the logit method (J. Berkson, J. Am. Stat. Ass. 39. 357-65, 1944).
