The collars remain in place for the 4-hr exposure period. The collars are utilized to prevent removal of wrappings and patches by the animals, while allowing the animals food and water ad libitum. The wrapping and patches are removed at the end of the 4-hr exposure period. When colored test substances (such as dyes) are used, it may be necessary to wash the test substance from the test site with an appropriate solvent or vehicle (one that is suitable for the test substance being tested). This is done to clean the test site to facilitate accurate evaluation.

B. Pigmented material: Some materials are strongly colored or act to discolor the skin at the application site. This makes the traditional scoring process difficult or impossible. One can try to remove the pigmentation with a solvent; if successful, the erythema can then be evaluated. If this fails or is unacceptable, one can (wearing thin latex gloves) feel the skin to determine if there is warmth, swelling, and/or rigidity--all secondary indicators of the irritation response. C. Wrong test: Sometimes we find severe necrosis in a primary dermal irritation study or irritation (but no corrosion) in a corrosivity test.

As a general rule, solids are more irritating if moistened (going back to Item A, this tends to enhance absorption). Care should also be taken as to what is used as a moistening agent--some (few) batches of USP physiological saline (used to simulate sweat) have proven to be mildly irritating to the skin on their own. Liquids other than water or saline should not be used. D. Several older regulations require that some or all of the animals in a PDI test group have their test site skin abraded before test material application.
