Amount / concentration applied:
0.1 g
Duration of treatment / exposure:
Information regarding rinsing after instillation not provided.
Observation period (in vivo):
For the test of primary eye irritation, the test material was applied into the conjunctival sac of rabbits. The first examination followed The rabbits were examined for skin alterations, behaviour and general condition 1 hour after removal of the patches, after 24, 48 and 72 hours, and then daily up to experimental day 8.
Number of animals or in vitro replicates:
3 females
Details on study design:
The test item was tested for its eye irritating properties. Prior to testing, the test material was screened for its irritating potential using hen's egg test on the chorioallantoic membrane (HET-CAM). In the main study on eye irritation, 0.1 g of the test material was grounded in a mortar using a pestle and instilled into the conjunctival sac of the left eye of each animal by gently pulling the lid away from the eyeball to form a cup into which the test material was placed. The right eye remained untreated and served as control. After instillation, the eyelids were closed for 1 second. The test for primary eye irritation was performed initially with one animal and followed by the confirmatory test with two further animals. For the test of primary eye irritation, the test material was applied into the conjunctival sac of rabbits. The first examination of the eyes followed 1 hour after instillation. The other examinations of the eyes were performed daily for a further 7 days.
