Table 2: Evaluation of Skin Reactions

The skin irritation study was conducted on six rabbits to determine the primary-irritation index, which serves as a measure of the acute irritation, provoked by the chemical on the skin of the rabbits. The test was performed according to procedure adopted was the patch-test technique described in the "Appraisal of the Safety of Chemicals in Foods, Drugs and Cosmetics" (1959) of the US Association of Food and Drug Officials (AFDO).
Six rabbits (3/sex) of Russian breed were shaved on the whole back and flanks two days before treatment with an electric clipper. The shaven skin on the left side was slightly scarified immediately before treatment. A gauze patch 2.5 x 2.5 cm was soaked with the test substance and immediately applied to the prepared skin. The chemical was applied to the each side at a dose of 500 mg (0.5g) in 50 % polyethylene glycol trituration (PEG 400). The gauze patches were removed 24 hours after the application.The reaction of the skin was appraised upon removal and after 72 hours.The primary irritation index as the measure of the acute skin irritation provoked by the substance was defined as the average of all the ratings found after 24 and 72 hours on the intact and slightly scarified skin. Compound producing combined averages (primary irritation indexes) of 2 or less were only mildly irritating; whereas those with indexes from 2 to 5 were moderate irritants, and those with scores above 6 were considered severe irritants.
The primary irritation index of the test chemical was estimated to be 0. Hence, the test chemical was considered to be not irritating to the rabbits’ skin.
