Executive summary:

The potential of the test item Disperse Red DYGJ 0702 to be irritant to the skin was investigated through an in vitro skin irritation study using a commercial reconstructed human epidermis (RhE) model named EPISKIN™. The experimental procedures are based on the OECD Guideline for testing of chemicals no. 439. The test item, as well as controls, were tested for their ability to impair cell viability after an exposure period of 15 minutes followed by a 42 ± 1 hour recovery period. The final endpoint of the assay is the colorimetric measurement of MTT reduction (blue formazan salt) in the test system being this reaction an index of cell viability. The test item was tested as supplied by the Sponsor.

Before the Main Assay, a preliminary test was carried out to evaluate the compatibility of the test item with the test system. In a first step, the test item was assayed for the ability of reducing MTT per se; a light brown/ reddish coloured suspension, with dark brown precipitate, was observed at the end of the incubation period, indicating that the test item could interact directly with MTT. In a second step, the test item was assayed for the ability of colouring water per se; a brown/reddish suspension was observed, which indicates a colouring capacity of the test item. Based on these results, additional controls were added in the Main Assay.

In the Main Assay, the test item was applied as supplied in three replicates at the treatment level of 20 mg/epidermis unit, each measuring 0.38 cm2 (treatment level: 53 mg/cm2). Positive and negative controls [a 5% (v/v) sodium dodecyl sulphate solution in water and Dulbecco’s phosphate buffered saline (D-PBS), respectively] were concurrently tested, in the same number of replicates and test conditions at the treatment level of 20 µL/epidermis unit. The negative control gave the expected baseline value (Optical Density values of the three replicates higher than 0.6) and variability [Standard Deviation (SD) of % viability lower or equal to 18], in agreement with the guideline indications. According to the method, the mean value is considered the baseline value of the experiment and thus represents 100% of cell viability. The positive control caused the expected cell death (2.8% of cell viability when compared to the negative control) and variability (SD of % viability equal to 0.1). Based on the stated criteria (mean viability 40\% and SD of % viability 18 ), the assay was regarded as valid.

In order to verify if the test item results had to be corrected, the non specific colour (NSC) was evaluated using one alive treated tissue without MTT staining and compared with the negative control. Moreover, non specific MTT reduction (NSMTT) was evaluated using killed tissues and compared with negative control performed with alive tissues. Based on the results obtained (NSC=1.3% and NSMTT=2.4%), only the OD-blank background subtraction was performed for the evaluation of irritant properties of Disperse Red DYGJ 0702. The test item did not induce cell death in any replicate with a mean cell viability of 104.9%, when compared to the negative control.

Based on the results obtained, the test item Disperse Red DYGJ 0702 is classified as not irritant to the skin.
