The litter collection trays were changed daily, except on Sundays.The feed hoppers and water bottles were changed weekly. - Diet: rabbit feed (Pranav agro Industries Ltd., Maharashtra, India), ad libitum - Water: deep bore-well water passed through activated charcoal filter and exposed to UV rays in Aquaguard on-line water filter-cum-purifier (manufactured by Eureka Forbes Ltd., Mumbai, India), ad libitum- Acclimation period: 5 days ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS- Temperature (°C): 21-23- Humidity (%): 59-67- Air changes (per hr): 12-15- Photoperiod (hrs dark / hrs light): 12/12IN-LIFE DATES: From: 13 May 2011 To: 21 May 2011

Test system

Type of coverage:
semiocclusive
Preparation of test site:
shaved
Vehicle:
other: water was added to the test substance to make a paste
Controls:
other: not required, untreated sites of the same animal served as the control
Amount / concentration applied:
TEST MATERIAL- Amount(s) applied (volume or weight with unit): 0.5 g
Duration of treatment / exposure:
4 h
Observation period:
72 hReading time points: 1, 24, 48 and 72 h

Executive summary:

The acute dermal irritation study in rabbits was conducted to evaluate the skin irritation potential of Tris Amino Ultra Pure. Under the testing conditions of this study, the test substance Tris Amino Ultra Pure showed no evidence of dermal irritation. Five hundred mg (0.5g) of the test substance was made into a paste with a sufficient volume of water and mixed with a glass rod. The resulting paste was applied to the dose site and covered with a gauze pad of approximately 6 cm2 (2 x 3 cm - 6ply). The patch was secured to the body of the animal by a non-irritating semi-occlusive adhesive tape. After a 4-hour contact period, the bandage was removed and the dose site was wiped with water using clean towels. Three rabbits were treated at once. The degree of irritation was evaluated and scored by Draize’s evaluation method at 1, 24, 48 and 72 hours post removal of the test patch. There were no clinical signs of toxicity or pre-terminal deaths. There were no skin reactions observed at any time point during the study.
