Abstract : AI3-36587, maltol isobutyrate was evaluated on New Zealand White rabbits for its potential to cause skin and eye irritation. The data obtained serves as a basis for making a recommendation concerning its potential use on humans. This recommendation is intended only for guidance in further entomological testing of this compound. No further testing is planned for candidate repellent AI3-36587 because of the topical injury produced.
