Abstract:

A13-36409, A13-36410 and A13-36421 US Government Proprietary compounds which are candidate insect repellents proposed for use by the Army, were evaluated on New Zealand White rabbits for their potential to cause skin and eye irritation. The data observed serve as a basis for making a recommendation concerning their potential use on humans. This recommendation is intended only for guidance in further entomological testing of these compounds.
