Duration of treatment / exposure:
4 hours
Observation period:
Animals were examined for signs of erythema and edema, and the responses scored at 60 minutes, and then at 24, 48, 72 hours, 1 and 2 weeks after the patch removal.
Number of animals:
3
Irritation parameter:

Basis:
mean
Time point:
other: 14 days
Score:
ca. 2.16
Max. score:
8
Reversibility:
fully reversible
Irritant / corrosive response data:
In the first hour after the patch removal in two animals (No.: 8090 and 8095) moderate, in one animal (No.: 8076) well defined erythema was observed. In every treated animal very slight edema occurred.
In 24 hours after the patch removal in one animal (No.: 8090) severe erythema was observed. Severe necrosis, black coloured area was found on the treated skin surface. In one animal (No.8095) moderate, in one animal (No.8076) well defined erythema were observed.
In 48 hours after the patch removal in every treated animal very slight erythema was observed. Severe necrosis, black coloured dry and hard area was found in two animals (No.:8090 and 8095) and in one rabbit (No.:8076) the treated skin surface was dry and hard.
In the 72 hours after the patch removal in every treated animal very slight erythema was observed. The treated skin surface was dry and hard, desquamation began.
At the first week after the patch removal the erythema abated in every treated animal. In two cases (No. 8076, 8095) advanced desquamation was observed. In one animal No.: 8090 the treated skin surface was black, dry and hard. In this case starting desquamation was found.
At the second week after the patch removal no erythema or edema were observed on the treated skin surface, the eschar formation peeled and the necrosis recovered. The skin irritation effect of the test item proved to be reversible.

Classification of Test Items

Index of treated skin:            (A+ B)I(NXT)=c

A= total score of erythema

B = total score of edema

N =animal number

T = number of scoring, when the score is not zero

C = irritation index

 

 

0 - 0.5            non irritant

0.6 - 3.0         slightly irritant

3.1- 5.0          moderately irritant

5.1 - 8.0         severely irritant
