EC3 CALCULATION : Could not be calculated, since all S.I.s are below 3.

CLINICAL OBSERVATIONS: No deaths occurred during the study period. No symptoms of local toxicity at the ears of the animals and no systemic findings were observed during the study period.

BODY WEIGHTS: The body weight of the animals, recorded prior to the first application and prior to
treatment with 3HTdR, was within the range commonly recorded for animals of this strain and age.

Conclusions:
The test item was not a skin sensitiser under the test conditions of this study.
Executive summary:

Objective

The purpose of this Local Lymph Node assay was to identify the contact allergenic potential of the test material when administered to the dorsum of both ears of mice.

This study should provide a rational basis for risk assessment to the sensitising potential of the test item in man.

Study Design

In order to study a possible allergenic potential of the test material, three groups each of five female mice were treated with different concentrations of the test item by

topical application at the dorsum of each ear (left and right) on three consecutive days. A control group of five mice was treated with the vehicle only. Five days after the first topical

application, the mice were intravenously injected into a tail vein with radio-labelled thymidine (3H-methyl thymidine). Approximately five hours after intravenous injection, the

mice were sacrificed and the draining auricular lymph nodes excised and pooled per animal. Single cell suspensions of lymph node cells were prepared from pooled lymph

nodes, which were subsequently washed and incubated with trichloroacetic acid overnight. The proliferative capacity of pooled lymph node cells was determined by the incorporation

of 3H-methyl thymidine measured in a beta-scintillation counter.

Results

The animals did not show any signs of local irritation or systemic toxicity during the course of the study and no cases of mortality were observed.

In this study Stimulation Indices (S.I.) of 1.26, 0.91, and 0.65 were determined with the test item at concentrations of 10, 25, and 50% in acetone:olive oil (4+1), respectively.

Conclusion

The test item was not a skin sensitiser under the test conditions of this study.
