Duration of treatment / exposure:

Number of animals or in vitro replicates:

Details on study design:
Eye irritation studies in the Kodak laboratory were conducted using a method similar to that described in the current OECD Guideline. However, the test material was administered to six, rather than three, rabbit eyes. Three of the eyes were subsequently washed, so the effect of washing on the subsequent development of irritant responses could be evaluated. The effect of washing is not evaluated in current Guideline studies.

In vivo

Results
Irritation parameter:
overall irritation score
Time point:
other: 24 hours
Score:
0
Max. score:
4
Reversibility:
fully reversible
Irritant / corrosive response data:
Irritation, limited to erythema of the adnexa, resolved after one hour. No adnexal or corneal staining was observed. Immediate washing was beneficial.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
slightly irritating
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: expert judgment
Conclusions:
Based upon the findings of this study, p-diisopropylbenzene is slightly irritating to the eyes of rabbits.
Executive summary:

A 0.1 mL aliquot of p-diisopropylbenzene was instilled into both eyes of 3 rabbits; in one eye of each rabbit, the material was immediately rinsed with water, while in the other eye, the material remained without washing. Immediately after instillation, slight erythema was observed in 3 of 3 rabbits that was limited to the adnexa, and washing was palliative. At one hour after instillation, all signs of irritation had resolved in all rabbits.
