Test system

Type of coverage:
Preparation of test site:
yes, concurrent no treatment
Amount / concentration applied:
Each animal was treated by dermal application of 0.5 grams of the test item.

The test item was
moistened with 0.7 mL of the vehicle and applied to the skin of one flank, using a metalline patch# of 2x3 cm.
Duration of treatment / exposure:
4-hour semi-occlusive application.
Approximately 24 hours before treatment, the dorsal fur was clipped with electric clippers, exposing an area of approximately 150 square centimeters (10x15 cm). To facilitate scoring, treated skin areas were re-clipped at least 3 hours before the observations.
Each animal was treated by dermal application of 0.5 grams of the test item. The test item was moistened with 0.7 mL of the vehicle and applied to the skin of one flank, using a metalline patch of
2x3 cm. The patch was mounted on Micropore tape, which was wrapped around the abdomen and secured with Coban elastic bandage.
Four hours after the application, the dressing was removed and the skin cleaned of residual test item using tap water.
After the final observation, two animals were sacrificed by intra-venous injection of Euthasol® 20%. The other animal was removed from the study alive.
Observation period:
Mortality/Viability: Twice daily.
Toxicity: At least once daily.
Body Weight: Day of treatment (prior to application) and on the day of the final observation.
Irritation: The skin reactions were assessed at approximately 1, 24, 48 and 72 hours after the removal of the dressings and test item. The irritation scores and a description of all other (local) effects were recorded. Adjacent areas of the untreated skin of each animal served as controls.
Number of animals:
3 males.
Details on study design:
Three rabbits were exposed to 0.5 grams of PF-06460246, moistened with 50% watery ethanol by application onto clipped skin for 4 hours using a semi-occlusive dressing. Skin reactions were assessed 1, 24, 48 and 72 hours after exposure.
The study was performed in a stepwise manner and was started by treatment of a single rabbit (sentinel). The two other animals were treated in a similar manner one week later, after considering the degree of skin irritation observed in the first animal.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
No skin irritation was caused by 4 hours exposure to PF-06460246.
Based on these results PF-06460246 does not have to be classified and has no obligatory labelling requirement for skin irritation according to the:
- Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) of the United
Nations (2011) (including all amendments),
- Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on classification, labelling and packaging of items and mixtures
(including all amendments).
