Results and discussion

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Executive summary:

A single application of fluoroacids to the skin of rabbits produced a marked irritant and caustic action to the products with formation of a dry ulcer extending as far as the muscular layer, without however becoming infected, followed by slow healing of the ulcer without moist granulations, with the formation of a soft delicate scar that was attached to the underlying tissue.
