Robust Summary for SLI
The potential irritant/corrosive effects of the test substance were
evaluated using male and female adult New Zealand White rabbits, obtained
from Myrtle's Rabbitry, Thompson Station, TN, USA. Test animals were
individually housed under constant conditions of temperature (19-21 deg.
C), relative humidity (20-50%), and photoperiod (12-hr light/dark cycle).
Food and water were provided ad libitum.
Approximately 24 hours pre-exposure, a patch of fur on the dorsal trunk
area of three test animals was removed by close-clipping. One animal had
3 separate skin sites prepared. The test substance (0.5 g moistened with deionized water) was applied to the exposed skin via a semi-occlusive
gauze patch. The patches were kept in contact with the skin for periods of 3 minutes, 1 hour, and 4 hours (respectively, for the animal with 3
exposure sites), and 4 hours (for the remaining animals with only a single exposure site).
After the respective exposure periods, the patches were removed and
residual test material was removed using water. The exposed skin sites
were observed and evaluated for up to 72 hours following application.
Animals were observed twice daily, and unusual observations and/or
mortality were recorded. Animals were examined for signs of erythema and
edema, and reactions were scored according to the Macroscopic Dermal
Grading System based on Draize (1959). The 4-hour exposure data were
classified according to EEC guidelines (1983) and mean scores were
calculated to obtain Primary Irritation Indexes (PIIs) for erythema and edema.
Exposure to the test substance for 3 minutes produced no dermal
Exposure to the test substance for 1 hour produced very slight erythema, which resolved completely by 48 hours.
Exposure to the test substance for 4 hours produced very slight erythema
on 3/3 test animals one hour following patch removal. The dermal
irritation observed resolved completely in all test animals by the 48-h
Mean erythema score = 0.42 (nonirritant)
Mean edema score = 0.00 (nonirritant)
Under the conditions of the test, there was no evidence that nickel
sulfate hexahydrate was corrosive to the exposed skin of male and female
adult New Zealand White rabbits during exposure periods of 3 minutes, 1
hour, or 4 hours.
