shaved
Vehicle:
unchanged (no vehicle)
Controls:
other: not required, untreated sites of the same animal served as control
Amount / concentration applied:
TEST MATERIAL
- Amount(s) applied (volume or weight with unit): 0.5 mL
Duration of treatment / exposure:
4 h
Observation period:
72 h
Reading time points: 1, 24, 48 and 72 h

Irritant / corrosive response data:
24 h after removal of the test substance slight erythema in 1/3 animals was observed which was fully reversible within 48 h. The remaining animals revealed no erythema formation. No edema was observed during the study period in any animal.
Other effects:
No further local or systemic effects were reported.
