Strain:
New Zealand White
Details on test animals or test system and environmental conditions:
Test system: New Zealand White Rabbbit
Rationale: Recognised by the international guidelines as the recommended test system
Source: Elevage Scientifique des Dombes, F-01400 Chatillion sur Chalaronne
Number of animals: 1 male, 2 females
Age at start of treatment: 13 weeks

Test system

Type of coverage:
semiocclusive
Preparation of test site:
clipped
Vehicle:
unchanged (no vehicle)
Amount / concentration applied:
As a liquid, 0.5 ml (per animal) was measured with a syringe and applied undiluted as it was delivered by the sponsor.
Duration of treatment / exposure:
Approximately three days before treatment, the dorsal fur was clipped with an electric clipper, exposing an area of approcimately 100 cm2 (10 cm x 10 cm). The skin of the animals was examined approximately 24 hours before treatment, and, if necessary, regrown fur was again clipped.
Animals with overt signs of skin injury or marked irritation with may hve interfered with the interpretation of the results were not used in the test.
On the day of treatment, the test article was applied to approximately 6 cm2 of the intact skin of the clipped area. It was covered with a 2.5 cm x 2.5 xm patch of surgical gauze and the gauze was covered wih a semi-occlusive dressing. The dressing was wrapped around the abdomen and anchored with tape.
The duration of treatment was 4 hours. Then the dressing was removed and the skin was flushed with luewarm tap water to clean the application site so that any reactions (erythema) were clearly visible at that time.
Observation period:
Viability / mortality: Daily
Clinical signs: Daily during the observation period
Body weights: At start of acclimatization, on the first day of application and at termination of observation
Number of animals:
3

Irritant / corrosive response data:
Application of the test article to healthy intact rabbit skin resulted in a primary irritation score of 0.11.
Local signs (mean values from 24 to 72 hours) consisted of grade 0.11 erythema and grade 0.00 oedema. In one animal, very slight erythema was noted until 24 hours after treatment. All signs of irritaiton were reversible after 48 hours.
Other effects:
No clinical signs of systemic toxicity were observed in the animals during the test and observation period, and no mortality occurred.
No staining by the test article of the treated skin was observed.
No irreversible alterations of the treted skin were observed nor were corrosive effects evident on the skin.
The body weight of all rabbits were considered to be within the normal range of variability

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
Based upon the referred classification criteria, Vetyveryl Acetate is considered to be 'not irritating' to rabbit skin.
