Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Results and discussion

Results of examinations

Details on results:
Clinical observations:
Es traten keine vorzeitigen Todesfälle auf. Das
Körpergewicht der Tiere der hohen Dosisgruppe war vermindert
(signifikant bei den Männchen).
No premature mortalities occurred. The body weight of the
animals from the high-dose group was reduced (significantly
in the case of the male animals).
Laboratory findings:
Bei den Tieren der hohen Dosisgruppe wurden folgende
klinisch-chemische Veränderungen festgestellt: Abnahme der
Glucosewerte (Männchen), Anstieg von Serum Kreatinin,
Bilirubin, Triglyzeriden, alkalischer Phosphatase und
Abnahme der Chloridwerte für Männchen und Weibchen und ein
Anstieg der Alaninaminotransferase bei den Weibchen. Bei den
Tieren der Erholungsgruppe waren alle Werte mit Ausnahme der
Glucosewerte wieder unauffällig.
The following clinico-chemical changes were established
among the animals from the high-dose group: reduction in the
glucose values (males), increase in serum creatine,
bilirubin, triglycerides, alkaline phosphatase and a
decrease in the chloride values for males and females and
an increase in the alanine aminotransferase among the
females. In the case of the animals from the recovery group,
with the exception of the glucose values, all of the values
were inconspicuous.
Effects in organs:
Die absoluten Organgewichte von Hirnanhangdrüse, Herz und
Milz und die relativen Organgewichte von Hirnanhangdrüse und
Leber waren bei den Weibchen signifikant vermindert; bei den
Männchen war das absolute Gehirngewicht signifikant
Histologisch ergaben sich keine substanzbedingten
The absolute organ weights of the pituitary gland, heart and spleen and the relative organ weights of the pituitary gland
and liver were significantly reduced among the females; in
the case of the male animals, the absolute brain weight was
significantly lower.
Histologically, there were no substance-related changes.
