Abstract : The acute oral toxicity potential of CHF1 insect repellent was determined in rats by using the single dose method. LD1, LD50, and LD95 with their 95% confidence intervals were calculated by probit analysis. The LD50 for male rats was 4632 microliters/kg; the LD50 for female rats was 2495 microliters/kg. These results place the CHF1 formulation in the slightly toxic range. (Author)
