Abstract:

The potential of nitroguanidine to produce primary eye irritation was evaluated in male New Zealand rabbits by using a modified Draize method. Nitroguanidine produced no response indicative of a potential to cause irritation upon direct contact with the eye. Slight conjunctival vasodilation was the most serious response observed.
