Irritant / corrosive response data:
None of the rabbits vocalised upon installation of the test material.
The left (control) eyes were free of evidence of ocular irritation and other findings for the duration of the study.
Individual and average ocular irritation scores for the treated eyese are presented in Table 1.
Individual animal results (other findings), including sodium flourescein examination results, are presented in Table 2.
There were no test material related deaths, clinical findings, or body weight changes during the study period. The maximum average score for diocytltin bis (2 -ethylhexylmercaproacetate was 8.0 at one hour post instillation. Positive conjunctival irritation was noted for 4/6 rabbits. All animals had minor conjunctival irritation. There were no iridal or corneal findings. All irritation was reversible and completely subsided by day 4.
Other effects:
One female (no. 21091) lost 390g (14%) of initial (day 0) bodyweight. this weight loss was not considered to be related to test material administration. There were no other remarkable changes or differences observed in body weights during the study period.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
not irritating
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: other: Regulation EC no.1272/2008 (CLP)
Conclusions:
Under the experimental conditions employed, dioctyltin bis (2-ethylhexylmecaptoacetate) was not classified as an irritant. All irritation was reversible and cleared by day 4 or earlier.
Executive summary:

The preliminary ocular irritation potential of diocotylitin bis (2-ethylhexylmecaptoacetate) was evaluated in this study using New Zealand White Rabbits. Single 0.1 mL doses of the test material were instilled inot the lower conjuctival sac of the right eye of 6 albino rabbits. The eyelids were held closed for approximately 1 second and released. Left eyes were manipulated in a similar manner as the right eyes and served as contralateral controls. The eyes of all animals remained unwashed.

The eyes were examined for ocular reactions in accordance with the method of Draize at approximately 1, 24, 48, and 72 hours after dosing and on day 4 if irritation persisted. Sodium fluorescein was used to aid in revealing possible corneal damage at 24, 48, and 72 hours and on day 4. Postive conjunctival reactions were noted in the treated eye of 4 animals while minor conjuctival irritation was noted for all rabbits. There were no corneal or iridal findings. All irritation was reversible and completely subsided by day 4 or earlier.
