Any other information on results incl. tables

Treatment-related signs and symptoms included slight to moderate excitability and/or hypertonicity in the 25 and 125 mg/kg/day dose groups. Slight to moderate erythema, occasionally accompanied by slight, transient edema and necrosis, was recorded in the 125 mg/kg/day group. The irritation disappeared before the end of treatment. Histopathology revealed moderate to marked hydropic change and slight parakeratosis in the epidermis in the 125 mg/kg/day dose group. Slight hydropic changes without obvious parakeratosis was recorded in the 25 mg/kg/day group.

The no-observed effect level (NOEL) was 5 mg/kg/day.
 

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
Tris[dimethylaminomethyl]phenol when applied dermally for four weeks produced localized skin effects and no signs of systemic toxicity at a dose of up to 125 mg/kg/day. The NOEL for effects at the site of administration (skin) was 5 mg/kg/day.
Executive summary:

The test substance was applied to the skin of rats 5 times a week for 4 weeks at daily doses of 0, 5, 25, or 125 mg/kg. Treatment-related signs and symptoms included slight to moderate excitability and/or hypertonicity in the 25 and 125 mg/kg dose groups. Slight to moderate erythema, occasionally accompanied by slight, transient edema and necrosis, was recorded in the 125 mg/kg group. The irritation disappeared before the end of treatment. Histopathology revealed moderate to marked hydropic change and slight parakeratosis in the epidermis in the 125 mg/kg dose group. Slight hydropic changes without obvious parakeratosis was recorded in the 25 mg/kg group.

The no-observed effect level (NOEL) was 5 mg/kg/day.
