TEST ANIMALS
- Source:Elevage Scientifique des Dombes F-01400 Chatillon sur Chalaronne / France
- Age at study initiation: 11 weeks
- Number of animals per test: 1 male, 2 female
- Housing: Standard Laboratory Conditions Air-conditioned with target ranges for room temperature 17-23 “C, relative humidity 30-70 Y. and approximately 10-15 air changes per hour. Room temperature and humidity were monitored continuously and values outside of these ranges may have occasionally occurred, usually following room cleaning. These transient variations are considered not to have any influence on the study and, therefore, these data are not reported but are retained at RCC. The animals were provided with an automatically controlled light cycle of 12 hours light and 12 hours dark. Music was played during the daytime light period.
- Diet : Pelleted standard Provimi Kliba 3418 rabbit maintenance diet ad /ibitum (batch no. 28/03) provided by Provimi Kliba AG, CH-4303 Kaiseraugst. Results of analysis for contaminants are archived at RCC Ltd, Itingen.
- Water :Community tap water from Fuliinsdorf, ad Iibitum. Results of bacteriological, chemical and contaminant analyses are archived at RCC Ltd, Itingen.
- Acclimatization:Under laboratory conditions after health examination. Only animals without any visual signs of illness were used for the study.

Test system

Type of coverage:
semiocclusive
Vehicle:
other: Bidistilled water
Amount / concentration applied:
500 mg
Duration of treatment / exposure:
4 h
Observation period:
Viability/Mortality and Clinical signs: Daily from acclimatization of the animals to the termination of test.
Body weights: At start of acclimatization, on the day of application and at termination of observation.
Number of animals:
3
Details on study design:
Four days before treatment, one flank was clipped with an electric clipper, exposing an area of approximately 100 cm² (10cm x 10 cm). The skin of the animals was examined one day before treatment, and regrown fur of all animals was again clipped. Animals with overt signs of skin injury or marked irritation which may have interfered with the interpretation of the results were not used in the test. On the day of treatment, 0.5 g of ucb 6474 was placed on a surgical gauze patch (ca. 4 cm x 4 cm). This gauze patch was applied to the intact skin of the clipped area. The patch was covered with a semi-occlusive dressing. The dressing was wrapped around the abdomen and anchored with tape.The duration of treatment was 4 hours. Then the dressing was removed and the skin was flushed with lukewarm tap water to clean the application site so that any reactions (erythema) were clearly visible at that time.
The skin reaction was assessed according to the numerical scoring system listed in the EEC Commission Directive 92/69/EEC, July 31, 1992 approximately 1, 24, 48 and 72 hours after the removal of the dressing, gauze patch and test item. To allow further examination of the test site animal No. 32 was re-clipped on completion of the 24-hour examination.

Irritant / corrosive response data:
The test item did not elicit any skin reactions at the application site of any animal at any of the observation times (all scores 0). The individual mean score for erythema/eschar and oedema for each of the three animals was therefore 0.
Other effects:
No clinical signs of systemic toxicity were observed in the animals during the study and no mortality occurred.
No staining produced by the test item of the treated skin was observed.
Neither alterations of the treated skin were observed nor were corrosive effects evident on the skin.
The body weights of all rabbits were considered to be within the normal range of variability.

Any other information on results incl. tables

Based upon the referred classification criteria (Commission Directive 2001/59/EC of August 06,2001 ), ucb 6474 is considered to be “not irritating” to rabbit skin.
