Materials and methods

Test guideline
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
OECD Guideline 406 (Skin Sensitisation)
Deviations:
yes
Remarks:
10 animals/group, low concentration during induction, no reliability check reported
GLP compliance:
yes
Type of study:
Buehler test
Justification for non-LLNA method:
A klimisch 2 Buehler study already existed on the test substance. Therefore, it was considered scientifically unjustified to re-run the same study according to the LLNA method.

Details on study design:
RANGE FINDING TESTS: The skin reactions (irritation) after a single dermal exposure of the test substance were tested. Four groups of two animals each were tested with different concentrations of the test substance for a time of 72 h. Sesame oil was used as thinner. The test substance was not administered to the control animals. However, in all other items (clipping, putting the occlusive bandage on the guinea pigs for 6 h), the control animals were treated in the same way as the test animals.
