Abstract : The impact of rinsing on the primary dermal irritation caused by the components of the Prototype M-258A-1 Decontamination Kit was assessed by using a modified Draize test. The test called for applying the components as they are intended to be applied under field conditions. Approximately 0.03 to 0.1 g of test substance was applied per dose site. Immediately the sites were rinsed three times with saline. The rinsing reduced the primary dermal irritation caused by the solutions. (Author)
