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* 36.009 *100

PEC = 0.0054 μg/L


A = 36.009 kg (total sold amount API in Sweden year 2018, data from IQVIA).

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 96h (growth) > 500 μg/L (OECD 201) (Reference 6)

NOEC = 500 μg/L

Water flea (Daphnia magna):

Acute toxicity

EC50 48 h (immobility) > 2,900 μg/L (OECD 202) (Reference 5)

NOEC = 2,900 μg/L

Water flea (Daphnia magna):

Chronic toxicity

NOEC 21 days (reproduction) = 160 μg/L (OECD 211) (Reference 8)

Rainbow Trout :

Acute toxicity

No data

Fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas):

Chronic toxicity

NOEC 28 days (growth) = 333 μg/L (OECD 210) (Reference 9)

Other ecotoxicity data:

Chironomid (Chironomus riparius)

NOEC 28 days (emergence) = 1,000,000 μg/kg (OECD 218) (Reference 12)

Microorganisms in activated sludge

EC50 3 hours (Inhibition) > 1,083,000 μg/L (OECD 209) (Reference 4)

PNEC = 160/10 = 16 μg/L

PNEC (μg/L) = lowest NOEC/10, where 10 is the assessment factor applied for three long-term NOECs. NOEC for water flea (= 160 ug/L) has been used for this calculation since it is the most sensitive of the three tested species.

Environmental risk classification (PEC/PNEC ratio)

PEC/PNEC = 0.0054 μg/L / 16 μg/L = 0.000338, i.e. PEC/PNEC ≤ 0.1 which justifies the phrase “Use of pazopanib has been considered to result in insignificant environmental risk.”


Biotic degradation

Ready degradability:

No data

Inherent degradability:

0% degradation in 28 days (OECD 301C) (Reference 3)

Simulation studies:

50% (DT50) degradation > 365 days (OECD 308) (Reference 11)

Non-extractable residues = 8.60% - 10.50%

Abiotic degradation


No data


No data

Justification of chosen degradation phrase:

Pazopanib is not readily biodegradable nor inherently biodegradable. This substance is predicted to degrade in water sediment systems > 120 days. The phrase “Pazopanib is potentially persistent” is thus chosen.


Bioconcentration factor (BCF):

Rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)

BCF = 5 - 6 (OECD 305) (Reference 10)

Partitioning coefficient:

Log Dow = 3.33 at pH 7 (OECD 107) (Reference 7)

Log Dow at pH 5 = 2.26

Log Dow at pH 7 = 3.33

Log Dow at pH 9 = 3.92

Justification of chosen bioaccumulation phrase:

Since BCF < 500, the substance has low potential for bioaccumulation.

Excretion (metabolism)

Results from in vitro studies demonstrated that metabolism of pazopanib is mediated primarily by CYP3A4, with minor contributions from CYP1A2 and CYP2C8.

Pazopanib is eliminated slowly with a mean half-life of 30.9 hours after administration of the recommended dose of 800 mg. Elimination is primarily via faeces with renal elimination accounting for < 4 % of the administered dose. (Reference 2)

PBT/vPvB assessment

Pazopanib 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). Pazopanib does not fulfil the criteria for PBT and/or vBvP based on a BCF < 500 and a chronic NOEC > 0.01 mg/L.
