Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
not irritating
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
Under the concitions of the performed eye irritation study, the test substance was determined to be not irritating to the eye.
Executive summary:

The potential to cause damage to the conjunctiva, iris or cornea was assessed in an OECD 405 guideline study in compliance with GLP. Three white Vienna rabbits were subjected to a single ocular application of 0.1 mL of the test substance on day 0. The mean score (24 to 72 hours) for irritation was calculated to be 0 (all animals) for corneal opacity and iritis, 0, 1, and 0.3 for chemosis and 0.3, 2, and 1 for conjunctivae redness for animal 1, 2, and 3 respectively. The eye findings observed were reversible in one animal within 48 hours; another animal was free of signs 72 hours after instillation and in the 3rd animal the eye findings were reversible within 15 days after instillation. Based on these findings it is concluded that the test substance is not irritating to the eye
