Environmental Risk Classification

Predicted Environmental Concentration (PEC)

PEC is calculated according to the following formula:

PEC (μg/L) = (A*109*(100-R)/(365*P*V*D*100) = 1.5*10-6*A(100-R)


PEC = 0.047 μg/L


Where:

A = 315.27 kg (total sold amount API in Sweden year 2015, data from IMS Health).

R = 0% removal rate (conservatively, it has been assumed there is no loss by adsorption to sludge particles, by volatilization, hydrolysis or biodegradation)

P = number of inhabitants in Sweden = 9 *106

V (L/day) = volume of wastewater per capita and day = 200 (ECHA default) (Reference 1)

D = factor for dilution of waste water by surface water flow = 10 (ECHA default) (Reference 1)


Predicted No Effect Concentration (PNEC)

Ecotoxicological studies

Green Algae (Selenastrum caprocornutum):

IC50 72h (growth) > 96,900 μg/L (OECD 201) (Reference 7)

NOEC > 96,900 μg/L


Water flea (Daphnia magna):

Acute toxicity

EC50 48 h (immobility) > 1,000,000 μg/L (OECD 202) (Reference 5)

NOEC > 1,000,000 μg/L


Water flea (Ceriodaphnia dubia):

Chronic toxicity

EC50 7 days (reproduction) > 100,000 μg/L (EPA 1002) (Reference 10)

NOEC = 100,000 μg/L


Water flea (Daphnia magna):

Chronic toxicity

EC50 21 days (reproduction) > 100,000 μg/L (OECD 211) (Reference 12)

NOEC = 100,000 μg/L


Rainbow Trout (Juvenilee Oncorhyncus mykiss):

Acute toxicity

LC50 96 h (lethality) > 97,700 μg/L (OECD 203) (Reference 8)

NOEC = 97,700 μg/L


Fathead Minnow (Pimephales promelas):

Chronic toxicity

LC50 96 h (lethality) > 10,000 μg/L (OECD 210) (Reference 13)

NOEC = 10,000 μg/L


Other ecotoxicity data:

Microorganisms in activated sludge

EC50 3 hours (Inhibition) > 1,000,000 μg/L (OECD 209) (Reference 11)

NOEC = 1,000,000 μg/L


Chironomid (Chironomus riparius)

NOEC 28 days (development) = 100,000 μg/kg (OECD 218) (Reference 14)


PNEC = 10,000/10 = 1,000 μg/L


PNEC (μg/L) = lowest NOEC/10, where 10 is the assessment factor applied for three long-term NOECs. NOEC for fish (= 10,000 ug/L) has been used for this calculation since it represents the lowest value for all three tested species.


Environmental risk classification (PEC/PNEC ratio)

PEC/PNEC = 0.047/1,000 = 4.70 x 10-5, i.e. PEC/PNEC ≤ 1 which justifies the phrase “Use of lamivudine has been considered to result in insignificant environmental risk.”


Degradation

Biotic degradation

Ready degradability:

< 1% degradation in 28 days (OECD 301B) (Reference 4)


Inherent degradability:

0% degradation in 28 days (OECD 302B) (Reference 9)

4% primary (loss of parent) degradation in 28 days


15-24% degradion in soil (TAD 3.12) (Reference 3)


Simulation studies:

Water-sediment study:

50% (DT50) decline (total system) = 22-29 days (OECD 308) (Reference 14)

CO2 = 8.50% - 12.60%

Non-extractable residue = 8.00% - 9.10%


Abiotic degradation

Hydrolysis:

Half-life, pH 7 > 1 year (OECD 111) (Reference 3)


Photolysis:

No data


Justification of chosen degradation phrase:

Lamivudine is not readily biodegradable nor inherently biodegradable. The phrase “Lamivudine is potentially persistent” is thus chosen.


Bioaccumulation

Partitioning coefficient:

Log Dow = -1.44 at pH7. (TAD 3.02) (Reference 3)


Log Dow at pH5 = -1.17

Log Dow at pH7 = -1.44

Log Dow at pH9 = -1.86


Justification of chosen bioaccumulation phrase:

Since log Dow < 4, the substance has low potential for bioaccumulation.


Excretion (metabolism)

Lamivudine is predominately cleared unchanged by renal excretion. The likelihood of metabolic interactions of lamivudine with other medicinal products is low due to the small extent of hepatic metabolism (5-10%) and low plasma protein binding. (Reference 2)


PBT/vPvB assessment

Lamivudine does not fulfil the criteria for PBT and/or vBvP.

All three properties, i.e. ‘P’, ‘B’ and ‘T’ are required in order to classify a compound as PBT (Reference 1). Lamivudine does not fulfil the criteria for PBT and/or vBvP based on a log Dow < 4.
