Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
not sensitising
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
The test substance does not appear to be a sensitizer in the albino guinea pig.
Executive summary:

In a Magnusson-Kligman Guinea Pig maximization test, 20 Dunkin-Hartley strain albino Guinea Pigs were treated with undiluted test substance, scores of zero in all test animals were obtained at all time points examined. The test material does not appear to be a sensitizer in the albino guinea pig.
