Administration / exposure

Route of administration:
oral: gavage
CMC (carboxymethyl cellulose)
Details on oral exposure:
Test substance preparation:
The test substance was placed into a glass beaker on a tared Mettler analytical balance and carboxymethyl cellulose 1% was added. A weight/weight suspension was prepared using a magnetic stirrer, a mechanical stirrer and an electric blender. The preparation was made immediately prior to each dosing.
Dose volume: 10 mL/kg bw
2000 mg/kg bw
No. of animals per sex per dose:
5 per sex per dose
Control animals:
not specified
Details on study design:
- Duration of observation period following administration: 15 d
- Necropsy of survivors performed: yes; all animals were necropsied. All animals surviving to the end of the observation period were sacrificed by oxygen/carbon dioxide asphyxiation.
- Other examinations performed: clinical signs, body weight, organ weights, histopathology, other:
- Mortality / Viability: At least three times each Day.
- Body Weights: Test Days 1 (pre-administration), 8 and 15
- Clinical Signs: Each animal was examined for changes to treatment with particular attention paid to changes in behaviour, respiration, motility, body posture, motor susceptibility, skin, eyes, nose and fur. Observations were performed four times during Day 1, and once daily during Days 2 - 15. All abnormalities were recorded.

No mortality occurred during the study period.
Clinical signs:
other: No clinical signs of ill health or behavioural changes were observed during the study period.
Gross pathology:
Macroscopic post mortem examination of the animals at termination did not reveal any significant abnormalities. Renal pelvic dilation is a common finding in animals of this age and strain and therefore considered of no toxicological significance.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
other: Not classified according to the CLP Regulation
Under the study conditions, the oral LD50 of the test substance was found to be > 2000 mg/kg bw (i.e. ca. > 1814 mg a.i./kg bw) in rats.
Executive summary:

The study was conducted in order to assess the acute oral toxicity of the test substance in Wistar rats according to OECD Guideline 401 and EU Method B.1 in compliance with GLP.

Two groups of 5 female or 5 male rats received a single oral (gavage) dose of 2000 mg/kg bw of test substance. Parameters assessed included mortality, clinical observations, body weight and necropsy findings in all animals over a 15 d observation period.

No mortality occurred, no clinical signs were observed and no significant macroscopic abnormalities were seen at necropsy except renal pelvic dilation which is a common finding in animals of this age and strain and was therefore considered to be of no toxicological significance. Further, normal body weight gain was noted in all females over the first week. However, slightly reduced body weight gain was observed among females over Week 2 compared to Week 1.

Under the study conditions, the oral LD50 of the test substance was > 2000 mg/kg bw (i.e. ca. > 1814 mg a.i./kg bw) in rats.
