Test system

Type of coverage:
semiocclusive
Preparation of test site:
shaved
Vehicle:
unchanged (no vehicle)
Controls:
no
Amount / concentration applied:
TEST MATERIAL
- Amount(s) applied (volume or weight with unit): the undiluted test substance Stabiol VZN 1950 was applied at the dose level of 0.5 g per animal.
Duration of treatment / exposure:
4 hours
Observation period:
1, 24, 48 and 72 hours after exposure
Number of animals:
3 male rabbits
Details on study design:
TEST SITE
- Area of exposure: the flank of each experimental animal was sheared approx. 24 hours prior to the application with an electric clipper. Animals with intact and healthy skin were used in the test.
The semi-occlusive exposure was performed by means of a 6 cm^2 adhesive air- and vapour permeable gauze-patch which was fixed by a hypoallergic adhesive gauze-bandage.

REMOVAL OF TEST SUBSTANCE
- Washing (if done): the exposure was terminated after four hours by removing the patch and cleaning the relevant skin from the residual test substance.

SCORING SYSTEM: according to Draize scale
