Amount / concentration applied:
TEST MATERIAL
- Amount(s) applied (volume or weight with unit): 0.1 ml
Duration of treatment / exposure:
Test material was instilled into one eye of the test animal while the other eye remained untreated to serve as a control. The test material was not washed from the eyes.
Observation period (in vivo):
The eyes were examined and graded for ocular reaction at 1, 2, 3, 4, 7days following instillation of test material into the eyes.
Number of animals or in vitro replicates:
6 rabbits
Details on study design:
REMOVAL OF TEST SUBSTANCE
- Washing (if done): no washing.
- Time after start of exposure: not applicable.
SCORING SYSTEM: Interpretation of the results was made in accordance with the Draize technique for scoring ocular lesions

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
Category 1 (irreversible effects on the eye) based on GHS criteria
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
Under the conditions of this study, the test material causes irreversible effects on the eye
Executive summary:

In a primary eye irritation study, 0.1 ml of undiluted test substance was placed into one eye of each of the New Zealand White rabbits (6 animals). The test substance produced ocular irritation up to 7 days.

 

Due to the potential irreversible effects the test substance is classified as Category 1 in accordance with the classification system of GHS.
