Conventional Test Method:

Repeated Dose 28-day Oral Toxicity Study in Rodents (OECD TG 407) AND Reproduction/ Developmental Toxicity Screening Test (OECD TG 421)

Alternative Test Method:

Name & Description:

Combined Repeated Dose Toxicity Study with the Reproduction/ Developmental Toxicity Screening Test

The test substance is administered in graduated doses to several groups of male and female rats. Males should be dosed for a minimum of four weeks; females should be dosed throughout the 54-day study. Normally, mating of "one male to one female" should be used in this study. Because of the short period of treatment of the male, the histopathology of the testis and epididymus must be considered along with the fertility data when assessing male reproduction effects.
