Classification Data
6.1D (oral) SPECIES: Rat (f) 
VALUE: 1410 mg/kg 
REFERENCE SOURCE: Laham (1978) EHC 164, 1996 [INCHEM] 
6.3A SPECIES: Rabbit 
RESULT: Moderate irritant 
REFERENCE SOURCE: Van Beek, 1990 EHC 164. 1996 [INCHEM] 

6.4A SPECIES: Rabbit 
RESULT: Moderate to severe irritant 
REFERENCE SOURCE: Duprat et al. (1976) and Ballantyne et al. (1976) EHC 164, 1996 [INCHEM] 
6.7B CLASSIFICATION: B2; probable human carcinogen. BASIS FOR CLASSIFICATION: Based on inadequate human data and sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity in animals; increased incidence of hepatocellular neoplasms and alveolar/bronchiolar neoplasms in male and female mice, and increased incidence of benign mammary tumors in both sexes of rats, salivary gland sarcomas in male rats and leukemia in female rats. This classification is supported by some positive genotoxicity data, although results in mammalian systems are generally negative. HUMAN CARCINOGENICITY DATA: Inadequate. ANIMAL CARCINOGENICITY DATA: Sufficient.

6.9B (inhalation) EndPoint: LOEC 
Primary Organ: 
Subacute exposure of male rats to various concn (70-1000 ppm) of DCM produced a selective redn of dopamine levels ... /and/ also produced a discrete dose dependent increase of the noradrenaline turnover. ... Apparently, DCM can produce discrete changes in amine storage and turnover in catecholamine nerve terminal systems of the tel- and diencephalon, some of which may contribute to the DCM induced disturbances of the secretion of anterior pituitary hormones, but actions on other transmitter identified neurons involved in neuroendocrine regulation must also be considered.
