Irritation (Based on studies with rabbits)

Eye: SLIGHT IRRITANT

Skin: SLIGHT IRRITANT

Skin Sensitisation (Based on studies on guinea pigs with the active ingredient)

NOT SENSITISING

CHRONIC(Active Ingredient)

Terbutryn technicalhas been extensively tested on laboratory mammals and in test-tube systems. No evidence

of mutagenic, teratogenic or reproductive effects was obtained for mice and male rats. Long-term administration

did not lead to any tumour forming effects in mice; however in rats, extremely high feeding doses (equivalent to

approximately 10.5 g/day for a 70kg person) resulted in an increase in the incidence of thyroid tumours in the

males and benign liver tumours in the females. The relevance of these findings to humans is heavily doubted.

FIRST AID

In case of poisoning by any exposure route contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre. Phone

131 126.
