||The information now available to Nalco which prompts this letter is that preliminary results from a toxicological study on 2-hydroxyethylacrylate sponsored by Nalco indicate this chemical has neurotoxic properties. The toxicology study is being conducted by Bio-Research Laboratories, Montreal, Canada. Preliminary findings were made available to Nalco during a visit to these laboratories on July 24, 1980. The nature of the information is in the form of preliminary histopathological reading of tissues from rats subject to a 13-week intraperitoneal dosing which demonstrates peripheral nerve damage. The results reported here are preliminary and have not been subjected to quality assurance procedures nor final review.
||The quality of the documents listed in the Office of Toxic Substances database may not meet usual NTIS standards but are included to further the opportunity for the scientific and technical community to locate materials which may not be available elsewhere. The content is the responsibility of OTS. Prepared in cooperation with American Petroleum Inst., Washington, DC.
