In vivo test system

Test animals

Species:
mouse
Strain:
CBA
Sex:
female
Details on test animals and environmental conditions:
Female CBA/Ca (CBA/CaBkl) strain mice were supplied by B&K Universal Ltd, Hull, UK. The animals were individually housed in suspended solid-floor polypropylene cages furnished with softwood woodflakes.
The temperature and relative humidity were controlled to remain within target ranges of 19 to 25°C and 30 to 70% respectively. The rate of air exchange was approximately fifteen changes per hour and the lighting was controlled by a time switch to give twelve hours continous light (06:00 to 18:00) and twelve hours darkness.

Study design: in vivo (LLNA)

Vehicle:
dimethylformamide
Concentration:
5%
10%
25% w/w
No. of animals per dose:
groups of four mice
Details on study design:
The mice were treated by daily application of 25 microL of the appropriate concentration of the test material to the dorsal surface of each ear for three consecutive days (Days 1, 2, 3). The test material formulation was administered using an automatic micropipette and spread over the dorsal surface of the ear using the tip of the pipette. A further group of four mice as control group (vehicle alone).
Positive control substance(s):
hexyl cinnamic aldehyde (CAS No 101-86-0)
