Test system

Type of coverage:
Preparation of test site:
not specified
other: other flank served as control
Amount / concentration applied:
0.5 ml
Duration of treatment / exposure:
4 h
Observation period:
15 days
Number of animals:
Details on study design:
The test item was applied in a single dose to a small area (approx. 6 cm2 ) of skin on one side of the dorsal area with a gauze patch, which was held in
place with non-irritating tape. The untreated other side served as control. The test item was applied to the patch first, and then applied to the skin. The patch was fixed with a semi-occlusive dressing.
Animals were examined for signs of erythema and oedema at 1, 24, 48 and 72 hours after patch removal as well as daily until day 15.

Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
The test item showed moderate to severe irritant effects on the intact skin after a contact time of 4 hours.
Executive summary:

In this irritation study the test item was applied to one site of the closely clipped backs of 3 rabbits (strain NZW) at a dose of 0.5 ml per application site. The untreated other side served as control. The application site was covered with a semi - occlusive bandage for a 4 hour - contact time. Observations were recorded and compared to the control sites. 24 h, 48 h, 72 h, 96h, l20h, 144h, 168h, 192h and 216 h after removal of the dressing in all test animals erythema grade 4 as well as necrosis (extensive area in animal No. 460, small areas in animals No. 457 and 459) were found. At the 240h observation all necrosis had disappeared in all animals, as

necrotic tissues have been fully detached from the skin. But erythema (grade 4 in animal No. 457 and animal No. 460, grade 3 in animal No. 459) were still visible at the 240h and 264h readings.

Erythema decreased to grade 3 in all animals at the 288h reading, further to grade 2 in all animals at the 312h reading, to grade 1 at the 336h reading and disappeared at the 360h reading in all animals. No further clinical signs of toxicity were found.

The test item showed moderate to severe irritant effects on the intact skin after a contact time of 4 hours.

Considering the reported data of this irritation study including the development of necrosis, it can be stated that the test item showed moderate to severe irritant/corrosive effects.
