Test animals

Details on test animals or test system and environmental conditions:
- Source: Ace Animals, Boyertown, PA
- Age at study initiation: The animals were born the weeks of 2005- 04-05 & 2005-05-03 and received at the test facility on 2005-05-31 & 2005-06-21.
- Weight at study initiation: 05. The pretest body weight range was 205 - 214 grams for males and 210 - 220 grams for females.
- Fasting period before study:
- Housing: in suspended wire mesh cages 5/sex/cage prior to dosing and 3/sex/cage following dosing. Bedding was placed beneath the cages and changed at least three times/week.
- Diet (e.g. ad libitum): Fresh PMI Rat Chow (Diet #5012) was freely available except for 16-20 hours prior to dosing.
- Water (e.g. ad libitum): ad libitum at all times
- Acclimation period: 5 days

The animal room, reserved exclusively for rats on acute tests, was temperature controlled, had a 12 hour light/dark cycle, and was kept clean and vermin free.


Administration / exposure

Route of administration:
oral: gavage
unchanged (no vehicle)
Details on oral exposure:
- Concentration in vehicle: not applicable

MAXIMUM DOSE VOLUME APPLIED: 0.45 mL, or 2000 mg/kg based on specific gravity of the test material

DOSAGE PREPARATION (if unusual): 0.42-0.45 mL
2000 mg/kg bw
No. of animals per sex per dose:
3/per sex
Control animals:
Details on study design:
- Duration of observation period following administration: 14 days
- Frequency of observations and weighing: Animals were observed 0.5, 1,2, 3 and 4 hours postdose and once daily for 14 days for mortality, toxicity and pharmacological effects. Body weights were recorded immediately pretest, weekly and at termination.
- Necropsy of survivors performed: yes
- Other examinations performed: clinical signs, body weight, organ weights, gross pathology
Mean and SD were calculated for body weights

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
other: Category 5
Criteria used for interpretation of results: other: according to the grading system presented in the study report
The test material is considered to be in Acute Toxic Category 5. The LD50 is greater than 2000 mg/kg.
Executive summary:

The objective of the study was determination of the potential for oral toxicity using the Acute Toxic Class Determination. This study is designed to comply with the standards set forth in OECD Guidelines for the Testing of Chemicals, Guideline 423 adopted December 17, 2001. Guideline 423 is referred to in OPPTS 870.1 000 (December 2002) as an acceptable method to assess lethality within a dose range. Three healthy male and three healthy female Wistar albino rats were dosed orally with the test material at 2000 mg/kg bw. The rats were observed 0.5,1, 2, 3 and 4 hours postdose and once daily for 14 days for mortality, toxicity and pharmacological effects. Body weights were recorded immediately pretest, weekly and at termination. All animals were examined for gross pathology. The test article was assigned to a toxic category based on the mortality response noted. Summary: All animals survived the 2000 mg/kg oral dose in good health. There were no abnormal physical signs noted during the observation period. Body weight changes were normal in 5/6 animals. One female lost weight during the second week of the observation period. Necropsy results were normal. The test material is considered to be in Acute Toxic Category 5. The LD50 is greater than 2000 mg/kg bw.
