Abstract:

The purpose of this report is to provide preliminary toxicity data for the candidate cockroach repellant A13-30827. These data are intended to provide guidance in selecting compounds for further entomological and toxicological evaluation. In addition, the data may be useful in developing preliminary safety guidelines for handling this compound. The preliminary toxicological evaluation of candidate cockroach repellents consists of a series of acute screening tests designed to assess potential hazards from single exposures by various routes of administration. The test battery included Rat oral approximate lethal dose ALD Primary irritation skin and eye Dermal sensitization Saturated vapor inhalation hazard Physiological screen Mutagenicity Ames test.
