Short-term-toxicity of 4-methyl-1-phenylpentan-2-ol in rats.


PMID 6194084

Abstract

Groups of 15 male and 15 female rats were given diets to provide intakes of 0 (control), 10, 40 or 160 mg 4-methyl-1-phenylpentan-2-ol/kg/day for 13 wk. No effects attributable to treatment were seen in the 10-mg/kg/day dose group. At 40 mg/kg/day the only finding was a decrease in serum glucose in males. This was of questionable toxicological significance. At 160 mg/kg/day a reduction in weight gain, probably due to unpalatability, a mild proteinuria in the females, an increased relative liver weight in males, increased caecal weights, a reduction in serum glucose and a lower reticulocyte count were recorded. No changes were observed in the histopathological examination. The no-untoward-effect level established in this study was 10 mg/kg/day.
