Abstract
The submission reports that chronic administration of MHK Solvent (5-methyl-2-octanone; 72% minimum) to rats by gavage over a 90-day period induced signs of hind-limb weakness in several of the test animals. Histologic examination of peripheral and central nervous system sections revealed giant axonal neuropathy in the MHK Solvent-dosed rats.
