other: see 'Remark'
The study was performed prior to the OECD test guideline No. 402 but the protocol is similar to the TG with the following exeptions: occlusive dressing (worst-case condition) was used and only 3 animals per sex were included. However, a repeat study under standard conditions is unlikely to show worse effects, therefore this study was considered sufficiently robust to cover this endpoint.

Effect level:
2 000 mg/kg bw
Based on:
test mat.
Remarks on result:
other: 3/6 animals were died.
- In the range-finding study, no mortality was observed at 500, 1000 and 3000 mg/kg bw. At 5000 mg/kg bw, one male animal was died (100 % mortality) within 3 h of dosing.
- In the main study, 2 animals (1 male + 1 female) treated with 2000 mg/kg bw were died within 24 h of dosing. Another female animal was died on Day 5 of dosing. 50 % mortality (3/6 animals, all with intact skin) was observed.
Clinical signs:
other: - Range-finding study: Depression was observed in a male animal treated with 3000 mg/kg bw between 3-6 h of dosing. Skin dryness, flaking and redness was observed in male animals treated with 1000, 3000 and 5000 mg/kg bw dose, respectively. - Main study:
Gross pathology:
- Range-finding study: A male animal treated with 5000 mg/kg bw showed enlargement of right kidney at anterior end (15 cm in diameter), thickened capsule and sub capsular space was filled with grey-white pus.
- Main study: No abnormality was observed at necropsy in animals treated with 2000 mg/kg bw.

Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Dermal LD50 Combined = 2000 mg/kg bw
Executive summary:

In an acute dermal toxicity, the intact or abraded skin of albino rabbits (3/sex) was occlusively exposed to undiluted test material at dose of 2000 mg/kg bw for 24 h. The animals were observed for mortality, clinical signs and body weight for 14 days and then necropsied for macroscopic observations. Range finding study was conducted at the dose levels of 500, 1000, 3000 and 5000 mg/kg bw (1 male/dose, intact skin) to determine the dose for main study.

In the range-finding study, 0, 0, 0 and 100 % mortality were observed at 500, 1000, 3000 and 5000 mg/kg bw, respectively. Depression was observed at 3000 mg/kg bw; skin dryness, flaking and redness was observed at 1000, 3000 and 5000 mg/kg bw dose, respectively. Gross necropsy of dead animal showed enlargement of right kidney at anterior end, thickened capsule and sub capsular space was filled with grey-white pus. 

In the main study, 3/6 animals (1 male + 2 females, all with intact skin) died (50 % mortality) at 2000 mg/kg bw. Clinical signs observed in animals were slight to severe depression and skin blanching. One female with intact skin showed sign of irritation (skin moderately reddened) and faeces loose. In animals with abraded skin, sloughing and scab formation were observed. Surviving animals (2/3) showed decreased body weight gain over the 14 day study period. No abnormality was observed at necropsy.

Dermal LD50 Combined = 2000 mg/kg bw

Under the test conditions, the test material is classified as ‘Category 4: Harmful in contact with skin’ according to the annex VI of the Regulation EC No. 1272/2008 (CLP).

This study is considered as acceptable and satisfies the requirement for acute dermal toxicity endpoint.
