Abstract:

Chemical AI3-70948 Ga produced no primary skin irritation. It produced moderate injury to the cornea and, in addition, some injury to the conjunctiva upon application to the eyes of rabbits. Occular injury was unresolved at 7 days post-application in three of the nine rabbits tested and included scarring and con striction of the eyelids. This chemical was relatively nontoxic upon ingestion. Recommend that chemical AI3-70948-Ga be disapproved for further testing as a candidate insect repellent due to its potential to produce severe, permanent occular injury.
