Male Sprague-Dawley rats were exposed to 1,2,4-tribromobenzene (TBB) by gavage for 5 days, 2, 4, and 13 weeks at 0, 2.5, 5, 10, 25, or 75 mg/kg per d. There were no TBB exposure-related clinical signs of toxicity or changes in body weight. Liver weight increases were dose and exposure time related and statistically significant at ≥10 mg/kg per d. Incidence and severity of centrilobular cytoplasmic alteration and hepatocyte hypertrophy were dose and time related. The 75 mg/kg per d group had minimally increased mitoses within hepatocytes (5 days only). Hepatocyte vacuolation was observed (13 weeks) and was considered TBB exposure related at ≥25 mg/kg per d. Concentrations of blood TBB increased linearly with dose and at 13 weeks, ranged from 0.5 to 17 µg/mL (2.5-75 mg/kg per d). In conclusion, rats administered TBB doses of 10-75 mg/kg per d for 13 weeks had mild liver effects. A no observed adverse effect level of 5 mg/kg per d was selected based on the statistically significant incidence of hepatocyte hypertrophy at doses ≥10 mg/kg per d.
