Title Studies on acute and subacute oral toxicity of Sandofan C-50
Original title Izsledvane na ostrata i podostrata oralna toksičnost na Sandofan C-50 [in Bulgarian]
Bibliographic information 1987, Vol.30, No.6, p.41-46. Illus. 9 ref.
Abstract Sandofan C-50 is a preparation containing 40% copper oxychloride and 10% oxadixyl. The acute oral LD50 for albino rats (840mg/kg) puts the preparation into group III (moderately hazardous). At doses of 1/20 LD50 (42mg/kg) and 1/50 LD50 (16.8mg/kg) in 30-day experiments, there was no cumulative effect. Moderate signs of general toxic action were seen at the higher dose (42mg/kg): elevated activities of several dehydrogenases in blood and brain tissue, but there was no change in the general physical status and behaviour of the animals. The dose of 16.8mg/kg was inactive under the conditions of the 30-day experiments.
