Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
not irritating
Conclusions:
The study was conducted under GLP according to OECD guideline 405 on the registered substance itself without deviations. The method is to be considered scientifically reasonable. Hence, the results can be considered as reliable to assess the eye irritating properties of 12H-Dibenzo(d,g)(1,3,2)dioxaphosphocin, 4,8-dicyclohexyl-6-hydroxy-2,10-dimethyl in rabbits. The substance did not provoke any relevant or persistent reactions in the eye. The cornea, iris and conjunctivae score were determined to be 0.0 (mean of all animals). In consequence, the substance does not need to be regarded as eye irritant according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008.
Executive summary:

In a primary eye irritation study (OECD guideline 405), 100 µl ca. 40 mg 12H-Dibenzo(d,g)(1,3,2)dioxaphosphocin, 4,8-dicyclohexyl-6-hydroxy-2,10-dimethyl (no vehicle) was instilled into the conjunctival sac of adult albino HC:NZW rabbits (3 males) for 24 hours. Eyes were washed with phys. saline. Animals then were observed for 7 days. Irritation was scored by the method of Draize.

The substance did not provoke any relevant or persistent reactions in the eye. The cornea, iris and conjunctivae score were determined to be 0.0 (mean of all animals).

In this study, 12H-Dibenzo(d,g)(1,3,2)dioxaphosphocin, 4,8-dicyclohexyl-6-hydroxy-2,10-dimethyl is not an eye irritant.
