SKIN REACTIONS OBSERVED AFTER INTRADERMAL INDUCTION:

Well-defined or moderate to severe erythema was noted at the intradermal induction sites of all test group animals at the 24-hour observation with very slight erythema a the 48-hour observation.

Very slight erythema was noted at the intradermal induction sites of three control animals at the 24-hour observation.

No skin reaction were noted at the intradermal induction sites of control group animals at the 48-hour observation.

 

SKIN REAKTIONS OBSERVED AFTER TOPCAL INDUCTION:

Very slight to well-defined erythema and very slight oedema were noted at the induction sites of all test group animals at the 1-hour observation.

Very slight erythema was noted at the induction sites of 4 test group animals at the 24-hour observation.

Other skin reactions noted in test group animals were bleeding from injection sites and desquamation.

Very slight to well-defined erythema and very slight oedema were noted at the treatment sites of all control group animals at the 1-hour observation.

Very slight erythema, with or without very slight oedema, was noted at the treatment sites of 4 control group animals at the 24-hour observation.

Other skin reactions noted in control group animals were bleeding from injection sites and desquamation.

 

Other observations:

Bodyweight gains of animals in the test group, between day 0 and day 24, were comparable to those observed in the control group animals over the same period.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The test item showed no skin senitisation potential in an in vivo study in guinea pigs.
Executive summary:

A study was performed to assess the skin sensitisation potential of the test material using guinea pigs. The method used followed the recommendations of 92/69/EWG, B.6 (GPMT). Intradermal induction was done with 5 % test material in distilled water and distilled water with Freuds adjuvant (1:1). A topical induction with 50 % test item concentration was done. The challenge was performed with test item concentrations of 25 and 50 %. For each test item treatment group 10 animals were used. Furthermore, negative control groups were included with each 5 animals. After inductions slight erythema and oedema were observed in animals treated with the test item or the negative control. Both at the first and second reading after the challenge no positive reactions were observed in any of the test item treated animals or control animals, independent of the concentration. The test material is therefore considered to be no skin sensitizer.
