At 1, 24, 48, 72 h a determination of the erythema score was not possible due to substance induced coloration of the skin. At 8 d the score was 0.

Edema score was 0 at any time point (1, 24, 48, 72 h, and 8 d)

Executive summary:

500 µl of Macrolex Blau RR fl. was applied on a 2.5 x 2.5 cm² area at the shaved trunk of 3 rabbits and fixed semi-occlusively for 24 h. Reading was carried out 1, 24, 48, 72 h and 8 d after the application.

At 1, 24, 48, 72 h a determination of the erythema score was not possible due to substance induced coloration of the skin. At 8 d the score was 0. Edema score was 0 at any time point (1, 24, 48, 72 h, and 8 d). The primary irritation index is = 0.

The test substance is classified as non-irritant.

Macrolex RR fl. produced a primary irritation value of 0 concerning irritation in mucous membrane on the eye

Interpretation of results:
not irritating
Remarks:
Migrated information
Executive summary:

100 µl Macrolex Blau RR fl. was applied into the conjunctival sac of the right eye of 3 rabbits. Reading was carried out 1, 24, 48 and 72 h, and 8 d afterthe application of the test substance.

Macrolex RR fl. produced a primary irritation value of 0 concerning irritation in mucous membrane on the eye. Thus, the test substance is not irritating to the eyes.

Additional information

In a valid study according OECD 404 500 µl of the test substance formulated in glycerin were placed on a plaster and applied on the skin of 3 rabbits. After 4 hours the plaster was removed and the exposed skin area was cleaned with water. Erythema/scab building and edema were scored according to Draize at 24, 48 and 72 hours. No erythema and no edema was observed. Score = 0 at any time point.

In a valid study according OECD 405 100 µl (ca. 40 mg) test substance was applied into the conjuctival sac of 3 rabbits. The treated eye was washed after 24 hours with physiological saline. Eyes were examinated after application of test substance for 7 days.

Cornea, iris, conjunctiva (erythema and chemosis) were scored according to Draize at 24, 48 and 72 hours. Mean values (24, 48 and 72 h) for cornea score = 0, iris score = 0, conjuctivae score = 0 and chemosis score = 0. The test substance is not irritating.

The results were supported by skin and eye irritation studies on Reinblau RLW (CAS 41611 -76 -1).

500 µl of the test substance Reinblau RLW formulated in glycerin were placed on a plaster and applied on the skin of 3 rabbits. After 4 hours the plaster was removed and the exposed skin area was cleaned with water. Erythema/scab building and edema were scored according to Draize at 24, 48 and 72 hours. No erythema and no edema was observed. Score = 0 at any time point. Macrolex Blau CA 51056 is not irritating to the skin (exposure time = 4 hours).

100 µl (ca. 40 mg) Macrolex Blau CA 51056 = CAS 41611-76-1 was applied into the conjuctival sac of 3 rabbits. The treated eye was washed after 24 hours with physiological saline. Eyes were examinated after application of the test substance for 7 days. Cornea, iris, conjunctiva (erythema and chemosis) were scored according to Draize at 24, 48 and 72 hours. Mean values (24, 48 and 72 h) for cornea score = 0, iris score = 0, conjuctivae score = 0 and chemosis score = 0. The test substance is not irritating.


Justification for selection of skin irritation / corrosion endpoint:
