Additional information

Three male Californian rabbits were trated in an acute skin irritation study according to OECD guideline 404 with 0.5 ml of vinyl laurate. The substance was administered semiocclusively on a shaved area of the back side using nontoxic tape for 4 hours and then washed with water. A shaved but untreated skin area of the same animals saved as control. A 14 days observation period followed. No signs of irritating effects according to the guideline scoring sceme were seen at any time in any animal. No other signs of toxicity were found. The body weight gain was in the expected range for untreated animals of this type of study.
