Test animals

Details on test animals or test system and environmental conditions:
Test system: Rat, HanBrl: Wist (SPF)
Rationale: Recognized by the international guidelines as a recommended test system.
Source: RCC Ltd, Biotechnology and Animal Breeding, CH-4414 Füllinsdorf / Switzerland
Number of animals per group 3 males and 3 females
Total number of animals 3 males and 3 females
Age when treated: Males: 8 weeks, Females: 12 weeks
Identification: Unique cage number and corresponding color-coded spots on the tail. The animals were marked immediately prior to treatment.
Randomization: Selected by hand at time of delivery. No computer generated randomization program.
Acclimatization: Under laboratory conditions, after health examination. Only animals without any visible signs of illness were used for the study.
Husbandry: Room no. 104/ RCC Ltd, Füllinsdorf
Conditions: Standard Laboratory Conditions. Air-conditioned with 10 – 15 air changes per hour, and continuously monitored environment with target ranges for temperature 22 ± 3 °C and for relative humidity between 30 - 70 % (values above 70 % during cleaning process possible), 12 hours fluorescent light 12 hours dark, music during the light period.
Accommodation: In groups of three per sex in Makrolon type-4 cages with wire mesh tops and standard softwood bedding ('Lignocel' Schill AG, CH-4132 Muttenz/Switzerland).
Diet: Pelleted standard Provimi Kliba 3433 rat/mouse maintenance diet, batch no. 67/02 (Provimi Kliba AG, CH-4303 Kaiseraugst Switzerland) ad Iibitum. Results of analyses for contaminants are archived at RCC Ltd, ltingen.
Water: Community tap water from Füllinsdorf ad Iibitum. Results of bacteriological, chemical and contaminant analyses are archived at RCC Ltd, ltingen.

Administration / exposure

Route of administration:
oral: gavage
Details on oral exposure:
The animals received a single dose of the test item by oral gavage administration at 2000 mg/kg body weight after being fasted for 17 to 19 hours (access to water was permitted). Food was provided again 3 hours after dosing. The application volume was 10 ml/kg body weight.
2000 mg/kg bw
No. of animals per sex per dose:
3 females and 3 males
Control animals:
Details on study design:
The study strictly followed the OECD 423 toxic class methodology and in lack of mortality and other effects at 2000 mg/kg bw no further doses were tested. Animals were observed for 15 days following dosing for mortality/viability (daily), body weight (prior to administration, on days 8 and 15) and clinical signs (daily). Following the observation period, the animals were killed by intraperitoneal injection and macroscopic examinations were performed.
No statistics was applied in lack of symptoms/mortality.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Acute LD50 (oral, rat) of FAT 40810/A: >2000 mg/kg bw

An acute oral toxicity study was conducted in accordance with OECD test guideline 423 and EEC B.1 to assess toxicity of FAT 40810/A upon single administration.
Executive summary:

An acute oral toxicity study was conducted in accordance with OECD test guideline 423 and EEC B.1 to assess toxicity of FAT 40810/A upon single administration. Three male and three female HanBrl: WIST (SPF) rats were treated with FAT 40810/A by oral gavage administration at a dosage of 2000 mg/kg body weight. The test item was diluted in vehicle (purified water) at a concentration of 0.2 g/ml and administered at a volume dosage of 10 ml/kg. The animals were examined daily during the acclimatization period and mortality, viability and clinical signs were recorded. All animals were examined for clinical signs at approximately 1, 2, 3 and 5 hours after treatment on day 1 and once daily during test days 2-15. Mortality/viability was recorded twice daily during test days 1-15. Body weights were recorded on day 1 (prior to administration) and on days 8 and 15. All animals were necropsied and examined macroscopically. All animals survived until the end of the study period. No clinical signs were observed during the course of the study. The body weight of the animals was within the range commonly recorded for this strain and age. No macroscopic findings were recorded at necropsy. The median lethal dose of FAT 40810/A after single oral administration to rats of both sexes, observed over a period of 14 days is: LD50 (rat): greater than 2000 mg/kg body weight.
