Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Migrated information
From the data it can be concluded that the test item is not a skin sensitiser under the conditions of this assay.
Executive summary:

Study Design

In the study the test item was dissolved in acetone:olive oil (4+1) was assessed for its possible contact allergenic potential.
For this purpose a local lymph node assay was performed using test item concentrations of 5, 10, and 25%. The GLP study was performed according to OECD TG 429.


The animals did not show any clinical signs during the course of the study and no cases of mortality were observed.
A relevant increase in ear thickness gain could not be observed after treatment with the test item.
In this study Stimulation Indices (S.I.) of 1.83, 1.69, and 1.04 were determined with the test item at concentrations of 5, 10, and 25% in acetone:olive oil (4+1), respectively. Since the S.I. was not increased above 3 at any test group.


From the data it can be concluded that the test item is not a skin sensitiser under the conditions of this assay.
