A screening study was performed to assess the ocular irritancy potential of the test material in the rabbit following application onto the cornea of the enucleated eye. The results of the study are believed to be of value in predicting the ocular irritation potential of the test material in man.
For that purpose 0.1 ml of the test material, which was found to weigh approximately 55 mg, was applied onto the cornea of each of three enucleated eyes which had been maintained at a temperature of 32°C ± 1.5°C within a superfusion chamber. A further two enucleated eyes were treated, for control purposes, with saline solution (0.9% Sodium Chloride).
Maximal ocular irritation observations recorded for the test eyes were as follows:
Corneal Swelling (%)
Condition of Corneal Epithelium
Test Eyes a [min]
Control Eyes b [min]
a = For each time point the swelling recorded is the mean of three eyes
b = For each time point the swelling recorded is the mean of two eyes
Cldy = Corneal cloudiness
Int = Intensity of fluorescein uptake
[min] = Minutes following treatment
It can be concluded that under the conditions of the test, the test material is considered to have the potential to cause ocular irritancy in-vivo. The test material is also likely to cause severe ocular irritancy in-vivo in respect of its extreme alkalinity in aqueous solution.
