Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
irritating
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
At the dose of 10 mL test item/kg there was very severe erythema, edema and necrosis of the skin. At 5 and 2.5 mL test item/kg bw, erythema and edema were initially quite severe, but the edema subsided within 24 to 48 hours. Erythema, however, persisted for 4 to 5 days.
Executive summary:

Single doses of the test item containing 80% active ingredient were applied to the closely-clipped skin of male rabbits for 24 hours under occlusion. Doses given were 2.5, 5 and 10 mL test item/kg body weight, corresponding with ca. 9, 18 and 36 g active ingredient. At the dose of 10 mL/kg there was very severe erythema, edema and necrosis of the skin. At 5 and 2.5 mL/kg bw, erythema and edema were initially quite severe, but the edema subsided wihtin 24 to 48 hours. Erythema, however, persisted for 4 to 5 days. The 2 latter doses were considered as worst case situation volumes (9 and 18 g instead of 0.5 g), therefore the substance is considered to be irritating but not corrosive to skin. There were no scores available.
