Irritant / corrosive response data:
Results of Clinical Observation
There was no evidence of a corrosive effect on the skin.
No symptoms of systemic toxicity were observed in the animals during the test period and no mortality occurred.
No histopathology was performed.
Other effects:
Very slight erythema was observed in 1 hour after exposure only in rabbit No. 7. No skin reaction was observed in the other two rabbits. At 24, 48 and 72 hours after exposure no sign of erythema and oedema were recorded.
Interpretation of results:
not irritating
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
The test substance, Solvent Yellow 124, was tested for acute dermal irritation/corrosion.
Three rabbits were exposed to 0.5 mg of test substance, applied onto clipped skin for 4 hours using a semi-occlusive dressing. Skin reactions were evaluated after patch removal and observations were made at the 1, 24, 48 and 72 hours after exposure.
Very slight erythema was observed in 1 hour after exposure only in rabbit No. 7. No skin reaction was observed in the other two rabbits. At 24, 48 and 72 hours after exposure no sign of erythema and oedema were recorded. No evidence of a corrosive effect or symptoms of irritation were observed during all study on the skin of all animals.
No skin irritation was caused by 4-hour exposure of rabbits to Solvent Yellow 124.
Executive summary:

The test substance, Solvent Yellow 124, was tested in the study for acute dermal irritation/corrosion. Rabbits (New Zealand Albino breed) were used for the test. Test was performed according to Method B.4 - Acute Toxicity: Dermal Irritation/Corrosion, Council Regulation (EC) No.440/2008, published in O.J. L 142, 2008.

Three rabbits were exposed to 0.5 mg of test substance, applied onto clipped skin for 4 hours using a semi-occlusive dressing. Skin reactions were evaluated after patch removal and observations were made at 1, 24, 48 and 72 hours after exposure.

At first the test substance was applied on the skin of one rabbit (test animal No. 7). Rabbit

No. 7 was investigated 3 minutes, 1 hour and 4 hours after application of the test substance.

In confirmatory test, two others rabbits (rabbit No. 8 and No. 9) were used with 4-hour exposition period.

Very slight erythema was observed in 1 hour after exposure only in rabbit No. 7. At 24, 48 and 72 hours after exposure no sign of erythema and oedema were recorded and no evidence of a corrosive effect or symptoms of irritation were observed on the skin of all animals.

No skin irritation was caused by 4-hour exposure of rabbits to Solvent Yellow 124.
Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no adverse effect observed (not irritating)
