Any other information on results incl. tables

The dermal LD50 was >5000 mg/kg.  All four rabbits topically 
treated with  the test material survived.  No adverse effects 
were observed following  treatment.  Topical responses observed 
on the application sites of test  rabbits 24 hours post-treatment 
included slight (1/4) or moderate (3/4)  redness, moderate (3/4) 
or marked (1/4) swelling and moderate (2/4) or marked (2/4) necrosis. 
Gross necropsy examination of rabbits 2 weeks post-treatment revealed 
skin lesions at or near the site of administration, characterized 
by scab formation, skin thickening and subchronic inflammation. 
Internal observations were not considered to be the result of compound 
exposure  and/or absorption.
