A single cell suspension of LNC was prepared by mechanical disaggregation through a sterile 200-mesh gauge and washed once with Hanks' balanced salt solution. The LNCs were resuspended in RPMI- 1640 culture medium supplemented with 25 mM N-2-hydroxyethylpiperazine-N'- 2-ethanesulphonic acid (HEPES), penicillin, streptomycin and fetal calf serum, and the total LNC number were determined using an automated cell counter. The LNC suspensions (1 x 106 cells) were seeded into 96-well culture plates (five wells per group) and cultured with 0.5 pCi [3H] methyl thymidine (3HTdR) for 24 h at 37°C in a humidified atmosphere of 5% CO, in air. Culture was terminated by a semiautomatic cell harvester, and the 3HTdR incorporation was determined by liquid scintillation counting. The increases in LNC number and 3HTdR incorporation relative to controls were derived for each experimental group and the total lymph node activation induced by the test chemicals was calculated.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
not sensitising
Remarks:
Migrated informationCriteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
The test material, Erythrosine, is not sensitizing to the skin of BALB/c strain mice in the sensitive mouse lymph node assay (SLNA)
Executive summary:
Sensitive mouse lymph node assay skin sensitization assay was performed on female BALB/c strain mice. They were intradermally injected with 50 µl of test chemical –FCA emulsion into two sites of the abdominal skin at both sides of the ventral line. After 5 days 25 µl of test chemical in vehicle was applied to both sides of each ear for three consecutive days.Control mice were treated by intradermal injection of vehicle-FCA emulsion into the abdomen and then after 5 days they were exposed to vehicle alone on the ears for three consecutive days.

 

The increases in LNC number and3HTdR incorporation relative to controls were derived for each experimental group and expressed as SInand SIP, respectively; SI total as obtained from SInx SIP, which indicates the total lymph node activation induced by the test chemical.

 

A chemical was regarded as positive if it showed an SItotalvalue of 3 or more. The SItotalvalue of erythrosine was found to be 1.55 at 5% DMSO concentration.

 

The test material, Erythrosine, is not sensitizing to the skin of BALB/c strain mice in the sensitive mouse lymph node assay.
