Endpoint:
skin sensitisation
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
supporting study
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: see 'Remark'
Remarks:
Study performed in accordance with OECD guideline and in compliance with GLP guidelines. As the study is performed with a substance analogue, in accordance with REACH guidance the maximum reliability for read-across data is 2. Read-across is justified because of the similar chemical nature of the target substance compared to the analogues. The read-across rationale can be found in the analogue approach document attached in Section 13.

Any other information on results incl. tables

Maximum concentration not causing irritating effects in preliminary test: 50 %

Signs of irritation during induction:

After intradermal injection:

On day 3 moderate/severe erythema (grade 1 or 2) was observed in all animals (experimental). On day 10 1/10
animals showed small scabs.

Evidence of sensitisation of each challenge concentration:
The results lead to a sensitization rate of 0%.

Other observations:
none
