Any other information on results incl. tables

Evidence of sensitisation of each challenge concentration: No animals showed positive reactions at the challenge.

Other observations: The injection of the test article at the concentration of 1% in the vehicle caused slight irritation ( slight erythema and edema). Twenty-four hours after the removal of the 48-hour closed patch (booster), signs of slight irritation such as slight erythema of the skin were observed in animals treated with the test substance.
