Abstract : Chemical AI3-38349a did not produce irritation of the intact skin or of the skin surrounding an abrasion. It produced mild injury to the cornea and, in addition, some injury to the conjunctiva. Injury to occular tissue was eliminated by immediate washing with water. This chemical did not potentiate photo irritation. Chemical AI3-38349a produced a moderate sensitization reaction in the guinea pig.
