The local irritation study (skin and occular irritation tests) of HM10411, a rhG-CSF (recombinant human granulocyte-colony stimulating factor) was carried out in New Zealand White rabbits. HM10411 was applied to the bare skin at a dose of 2.5 mg/rabbit (5.0 mg/ml, 0.5 ml) and to the conjunctival sac of eye at a dose of 0.5 mg/rabbit (5.0 mg/ml, 0.1 ml) , respectively. In this study, there were no clinical signs which were related to HM10411 compared with those of control group. From above results, HM10411 has not any irritating activity to skin and eye in rabbits.
