ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE: Evodia, a fruit from Evodia rutaecarpa, has been used in oriental medicine, and since its various pharmaceutical actions, including anti-cancer activity, have become known, evodia has been widely used as a dietary supplement. However, information regarding its toxicity is limited.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: Evodia fruit from Evodia rutaecarpa (Juss.) Benth. var. officinalis (Dode) Huang (0, 25, 74, 222, 667, and 2,000mg/kg) was administered orally 5 times per week for 13 weeks. Clinical signs, body weight, food consumption, hematology, serum chemistry, urinalysis, vaginal cytology, sperm morphology, organ weight, and gross and histopathological findings were evaluated.
RESULTS: Urinary ketone body excretion was detected in males at 667 and 2,000mg/kg and in females at 2,000mg/kg. An increase in absolute/relative liver weight was observed in both sexes at 2,000mg/kg. Although levels of serum alanine aminotransferase, glucose, total cholesterol, and triglycerides were significantly reduced in males and/or females at 200 and/or 667 and 2,000mg/kg, all values were within normal ranges and were considered non-adverse. In addition, no treatment-related differences in body weight, food consumption, hematology, vaginal cytology, sperm morphology, or gross and histopathological examination were detected.
CONCLUSIONS: The subchronic no-observable-adverse-effect level for evodia fruit powder following oral administration in rats is greater than 2,000mg/kg.
