TOXICOLOGICAL AND SKIN CORROSION TESTING OF SELECTED HAZARDOUS MATERIALS
Animal tests were performed using selected substances to determine if they qualified as hazardous materials according to the Department of Transportation Hazardous Materials Regulations. Overall toxicological and skin corrosion test results are summarized. The actual test data and details of the test methods used are also included. The general testing protocols followed in these determinations were those discussed in Publication 1138 of the National Academy of Sciences, National Research Council (1964) title, "The Principles and Procedures for Evaluating the Toxicity of Household Substances." The number of test animals used in each experiment was required to be sufficient to give a statistically significant result and to be in conformity with good pharmacological practice.
