22. TOXICITY:

Poison schedule - S5
Summary:Poisonous if swallowed. Avoid breathing vapour or spray mist.
Details:
Poison schedule - S6
Mammalian toxicity - Moderate.
Acute oral LD50 - LD50(rat): 300-500 mg/kg [For comparison table salt is 3000 mg/kg]
Acute dermal LD50(rat): >4000 mg/kg.
Skin - Not irritating. Not sensiitising
Eye - Not irritating.
Vapour inhalation - EC50(rat): 0.9-2.2 mg/L (4hr).
Chronic oral toxicity (2 years) (active ingredient) NOEL(rat): 7.1 mg/kg/day (male)C8.8 mg/kg/day (female)C
Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) -
Assessment mutagenicity
Thiacloprid was not mutagenic or genotoxic in a battery of in vitro and in vivo tests.
Assessment carcinogenicity
Thiacloprid caused at high dose levels an increased incidence of tumours in rats in the following organ(s): uterus, thyroid.
Thiacloprid caused at high dose levels an increased incidence of tumours in mice in the following organ(s): ovaries. The tumours seen with Thiacloprid were caused through a non-genotoxic mechanism, which is not relevant at low doses. The mechanism that triggers tumours in rodents is not relevant for the low exposures encountered under normal use conditions.
Assessment toxicity to reproduction
Thiacloprid caused reproduction toxicity in a two-generation study in rats only at dose levels also toxic to the parent animals. Thiacloprid caused difficulties in parturition in rats. The mechanism of action for this effect is not considered to be relevant to man.
Assessment developmental toxicity
Thiacloprid caused developmental toxicity only at dose levels toxic to the dams. The developmental effects seen with Thiacloprid are related to maternal toxicity.
Assessment STOT Specific target organ toxicity - repeated exposure
Thiacloprid did not cause specific target organ toxicity in experimental animal studies.

23. TOXICITY SYMPTOMS:

Breathing difficulties, tremors, blood disorders, hypothermia

24. FIRST AID:

If SWALLOWED - Rinse mouth. Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medicinal personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Call a physician.
If in EYES - Irrigate for 15 minutes with plenty of water.
If on SKIN - Rinse with plenty of water, remove contaminated clothing, wash with soap and water.
If INHALED - Remove patient to fresh air.
If patient has symptoms or is concerned contact a doctor immediately.
Advice to doctor -
This product contains a nicotinoid.
Treatment
Treat symptomatically. In case of ingestion gastric lavage should be considered in cases of significant ingestions only within the first 2 hours. However, the application of activated charcoal and sodium sulphate is always advisable.
No specific antidote known.
