- Weight at study initiation: 184-304 grams
- Housing:group housed in Makrolon cages (MIV type, height 18 cm) during acclimatisation period; Individually housed in labeled Makrolon cages (MIII type, height 18 cm.) containing sterilized sawdust as bedding material (Lignocel S 8-15, JRS - J.Rettenmaier & Söhne GmbH + CO.

- Acclimation period: at least 5 days before start of treatment under laboratory conditions
- Health inspection At least prior to dosing. It was ensured that the animals were healthy and that the skin to be treated was intact and free from any abnormality

ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS

Administration / exposure

Type of coverage:
not specified
Vehicle:
propylene glycol
Details on dermal exposure:
TEST SITE
- Area of exposure: approx. 10% of the total body surface, i.e. approx. 25 cm² for males and 18 cm² for females
- % coverage: no data
- Type of wrap if used: surgical gauze patch (Surgy 1D), successively covered with aluminum foil and Coban elastic bandage. A piece of Micropore tape was additionally used for fixation of the bandages in females only.

REMOVAL OF TEST SUBSTANCE
- Washing (if done): after removal of dressing, the skin was cleaned of residual test item using tap water
- Time after start of exposure: 24 h
Duration of exposure:
24 h
Doses:
2000 mg/kg (single dosing)
No. of animals per sex per dose:
5
Control animals:
not specified
Details on study design:
Preparation of test item:
The preparation (w/w) was kept at room temperature and dosed within 4 hours after adding the vehicle to the test item. Homogeneity was assessed by visual inspection of the solutions and the formulations were stirred during dosing, which ensures homogeneity sufficient for these kinds of studies.
Adjustment was made for specific gravity of the vehicle. No correction was made for purity of the test item as the correction factor is 1.

Treatment of animals and application of test item:
Method: Dermal application. Test preparation was stirred on a magnetic stirrer during application.
Clipping: One day before exposure (Day -1) an area of approximately 5x7 cm on the back of each animal was clipped.

Frequency of dosing: Single dosage, on Day 1.

Observations:
Observation period: until day 15 after treatment
- Mortality/Viability: Twice daily.
- Body weights: Days 1 (pre-administration), 8 and 15.
- Clinical signs: At periodic intervals on the day of dosing (Day 1) and once daily thereafter, until Day 15. The time of onset, degree and duration were recorded and the symptoms graded according to fixed scales:
Maximum grade 4: grading slight (1) to very severe (4)
Maximum grade 3: grading slight (1) to severe (3)
Maximum grade 1: presence is scored (1).
- Necropsy At the end of the observation period, all animals were sacrificed by oxygen/carbon dioxide procedure and subjected to necropsy. Descriptions of all internal macroscopic abnormalities were recorded.
Statistics:
No statistical analysis was performed

Results and discussion

Effect levels
Sex:
male/female
Dose descriptor:
LD50
Effect level:
> 2 000 mg/kg bw
Based on:
test mat.
Mortality:
No mortality occurred.
Clinical signs:
Lethargy, hunched posture, piloerection, chromodacryorrhoea (snout) and/or ptosis were noted for all animals on Day 1. General erythema, scales and/or scabs were seen in the treated skin-area of most animals during the observation period. These local effects were considered not to have affected the conclusion of the study.
Body weight:
The changes noted in body weight gain in males and females were within the range expected for rats used in this type of study and were therefore considered not indicative of toxicity.
Gross pathology:
No abnormalities were found at macroscopic post mortem examination of the animals.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The dermal LD50 value of JNJ-119717-AAA (T001036) in Wistar rats was established to exceed 2000 mg/kg body weight. Based on these results, JNJ-119717-AAA (T001036) does not have to be classified and has no obligatory labelling requirement for acute dermal toxicity according to the Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008.
