Details on study design:
The day before the experiment was started the rabbits were weighed and an area of 10 x 10 cm on the back was clipped as closely as possible with an electric clipper. On the experimental day the rabbits were physically restrained on a test table, and the clipped area was divided into four fields. The two anterior fields were used for testing the experimental preparation. To each of two 16-layer gauze patches (2.5 x 2.5 cm) 0.5 ml of the
test article was applied, and the patches were placed on the appropriate test site on the back of each rabbit. The gauze patches were secured with 2.5 cm wide adhesive tape and fixed with Micropore tape, 5 cm width, loosely wound round the trunk.
After an exposure time of 4 hours the tape and patches were removed, the test fields were marked and the treated skin was cleaned with lukewarm water. The skin reactions were read 1 hour later.
Reading was also made 24, 48 and 72 hours as weIl as 7, 14 and 21 days after termination of exposure.
The respective scores for erythema and oedema formation for the 3 readings 24, 48 and 72 hours of each rabbit were summed up separately and divided by 6. The results are the mean scores for erythema and oedema formation of the individual rabbit.
The mean scores for erythema and oedema formation in 3 rabbits used were subsequently calculated.

Irritant / corrosive response data:
One hour after the end of application no erythema was seen in animal No. 833. In animal Nos. 671 and 678 a slight erythema was observed. In all rabbits a very slight oedema was seen at this time.
24 hours after removal of patches animal No. 833 showed a well-defined erythema and a slight oedema on both test sites. In animal No. 671 a moderate erythema and a moderate oedema was observed on both test sites. Animal No. 678 showed a moderate to severe erythema on
both test sites and a moderate oedema on left test area resp. a severe oedema on right test area.
The test areas of all three rabbits showed a moderate to severe erythema and a moderate oedema as weIl after 24 resp. 48 hours.
All test sites were completely covered with scales on day 7.
The test areas were easily discernible and the scales were almost completely fall off.
After 21 days the scales seemed to be removed from the test areas, in animal Nos. 671 and 833 a slight redness and an increased hair growth on the test fields were observed.
The mean individual erythema scores were 2.67, 3.00, 3.00, respectively.
The mean individual oedema scores were 2.67, 3.00, 3.17, respectively.
The mean score for the test article was 2.9 for erythema and 2.9 for oedema.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Based on the results of a study according to OECD Test Guideline 404 under GLP, the test substance is considered as skin irritating (applying the evaluation system of the EU regulation 1272/2008).
Executive summary:

The skin irritation potential of the test substance was evaluated in a study according to OECD Test Guideline 404 under GLP.The amount of 0.5 ml of the substance was applied unchanged under semi-occlusive conditions for 4 hours to the shaved skin of three Mol:Russian rabbits, which were observed for 21 days post application. Over the first three days, clear erythema and oedema were observed in all rabbits, which almost fully reversed within 21 days. Interpreting these results by applying the evaluation system of the EU regulation 1272/2008, the test substance is considered irritating to the skin.
