The body weight and the signs of toxicity including mortality and duration of effects were observed. Result: The signs of toxicity which were observed at: 0; ˝, 1; and 2 hours, respectively, did not appear from all groups. Then in the further observations for 14 days did not show the toxic effect and mortality. The body weight of all group increased. Statistically, the difference of weight increased was not significant.
