Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
not classified
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
The acute median lethal oral doses (LD50) and their 95% confidence limits to rats of test substance was estimated to be:
LD 50: 3900 mg/kg bw (2900 - 5100 mg/kg bw; 95% C.I)
Executive summary:

In an acute oral toxicity study (1699 02/03), 40 rats (10 per group) were given single oral doses of Ligustral/Cyclal C/Trigustral at 1730, 2470, 3510 and 5000 mg/kg bw and observed after dosing.

Oral LD 50: 3900 mg/kg bw (2900 - 5100 mg/kg bw; 95% C.I)

The following treatment-related effects were noted: clincal signs (lethargy, diarrhea with piloerection, chromorhinorrhea and ptosis noted with higher doses); mortality (at the lowest dosage, 3/10 animals dies; at the highest dosage, only one animal survived during 4 days observation period); necropsy observations (intestines, liver, lungs, kidney and spleen showed abnormalities that appeared dose related. The stomach and bladder showed sporadic abnormalities).
