Skin irritation : two guideline study (OECD 404) were available in rabbits.Eye irritation : a guideline study (OECD 405) was available in rabbits.
Acute Dermal Irritation / Corrosion GLP test performed according to OECD
404 was carried out with DOT(2
-EHMA) (purity>98%). The test substance was applied undiluted on a patch
on shaved rabbit skin. The test material induced slight to moderate
erythema on all rabbits and very slight edema on four animals. Three
rabbits had desquamation. There were no other dermal findings. All
irritations were reversible and completely subsided at day 11 or earlier.
Primary Irritation Index was calculated to be 2.2.Under
the experimental conditions, the test substance was classified as a
Eye irritation :
One in vivo rabbit eye
irritation GLP study performed according to OECD 405 was carried out
with DOT(2 -EHMA) (purity>98%). The test substance was instilled
undiluted in the right lower conjunctival sac. Minor conjunctival
irritation was observed, and no iris or corneal effects. Effects were
fully reversible within 96h. The test substance was not considered as an
Skin irritation :
