Subform VII: Scientific Study

1. Study Reference

Title Micronucleus test for Flint

Date 26-AUG-99

2. a) Is an extension needed to translate the document?


3. Type of incident identified in the study

New health or environmental hazard

4. Describe the incident identified in the study (e.g. study demonstrates an increased risk to non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma after exposure to pesticide X)

A group of 12 Swiss male mice received by intraperitonial administration 550 mg/kg of NVF 026-99, equivalent to 80% of the LD50 (687 mg/kg). Two concurrent control groups, negative and positive received the vehicle (deionized water, 5mL/kg) and cyclophosphamide (50 mg/kg), respectively. One animal of the experimental group died after the treatment with NVF 026-99 and one was scarified at random and taken out of the experimental group, so that 10 animals were analyzed per group.

5. a) Was the study discontinued before completion?


5. b) Provide the reason for discontinuation

6. If the study is ongoing, what is the expected completion date?

For Registrant use only

7. Provide supplemental information here

An experimental animal died after the treatment of Flint at a dose that was 80% of the reported LD50. This is likely reportable since the death occurred below the reported LD50, and would be considered a new route of exposure. In this case, by IP (intraperitoneal) injection versus an oral exposure that would be used during the acute study. However, this information should not affect the risk assessment as IP injection is not considered a relevant route of exposure in humans.
