Amount / concentration applied:
TEST MATERIAL
- Amount(s) applied (volume or weight with unit): 0.1 ml
- concentration: 100%
- 0.1 ml test material was placed in one eye of the rabbits and the lids were held together for 1 second
Duration of treatment / exposure:
24 hours
Observation period (in vivo):
- day before testing (both eyes of animals)
- 1, 24, 48 and 72 hours after treatment
Number of animals or in vitro replicates:
four female rabbits
Details on study design:

SCORING SYSTEM: see table below. When Fluorescein was used the cornea reactions were scored both before and after the instillation of Fluorescein.

TOOL USED TO ASSESS SCORE:
- hand held inspectio lamp fitted with white and UV-light and magnifying glass woth 2x magnification
- examination was performed before and after instillation of fluorescein

Irritant / corrosive response data:
One hour after application one animal showed a diffuse, crimson red conjunctiva with individual vessels not easily discernible, a swelling above normal and a discharge different from normal. Another animal showed some conjunctival vessels definitely injected and a sweling above normal. The other two animals showed some conjunctival vessels definitely injected, a swelling above normal and a discharge different from normal.
24 hours after application of the test material some conjunctival vessels definitely injected were observed in three animals. One animal was free of signs of eye irritation.
48 hours and 72 hours after application all four animals were free of signs of irritation.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
other: Not an eye irritant
Remarks:
according to EU CLP (EC 1272/2008 and its amendments)
Conclusions:
In an eye irritation test in accordance with OECD405, very slight signs of irritation were observed on the treated eyes. All effects were fully reversible after 48 hours. The test material was not irritating to the eyes under the conditions of this test.
Executive summary:

The potential of Cyclaprop to cause eye irritation was determined according to OECD guideline 405. Four New Zealand White female rabbits were exposed to 0.1 ml of the undiluted test article in one of the eyes. The other eye served as a control. The eyes were examinated and the changes graded according to a numerical scale one hour, 24, 48, 72 hours after dosing. The animals showed very slight signs of irritation on the treated eyes. Mean corneal opacity, chemosis, and iris scores at the 24, 48, and 72 hour time point were 0 in all animals. Mean conjunctivae score was 0.33 in three animals and 0 in one animal. The effects seen in the one animal was reversible within one day. It is concluded that Cyclaprop is not an eye iritant.
