Any other information on results incl. tables

The test item was a liquid, which was used undiluted or formulated in DMF. Since there were no confounding effects of irritation or systemic toxicity at the applied concentrations, the proliferation values obtained are considered to reflect the real potential of the test item to cause lymphoproliferation in the Local Lymph Node Assay. The resulted stimulation index values were under the threshold limit of 3 observed at the examined concentrations indicating that JAU 6476-ß-lacton (BCS-AA16476) is not a skin sensitizer.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
In conclusion, under the conditions of the present assay JAU 6476-ß-lacton (BCS-AA16476) was shown to have no sensitization potential (non-sensitizer) in the Local Lymph Node Assay
