Route of administration:
Details on study design:
TYPE OF TEST(S) USED: patch test (epicutaneous test)

- Type of application:
induction: about 2 x 2 cm; on left upper arm; occlusive for 24 h each
challenge: on the 2nd Monday after the last exposure on previously unexposed sites, 24 h
- Concentrations: 60% aqueous paste
- Volume applied: approx. 0.1 g/cm2
- Testing/scoring schedule: induction: week 1, 2 and 3: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday; scoring after removal of test substance; on the 2nd Monday after the last exposure, scoring after removal of the test substance (15 min and daily thereafter)
- Removal of test substance: after 24 h

- Grading/Scoring system: 0: no visible irritation; +/-: very slight edema (questionable); 1+: erythema confined to the contact side, barely exceeding that of untreated skin; 2+: erythema confined to the contact side, definitely exceeding that of untreated skin; 3+: erythema exceeding that of untreated skin, with some edema, both confined to the contact side; 4+: erythema and edema, with one ore more complications such as: extension beyond margins of contact area, vesiculation and ulceration.
- Statistical analysis: not stated

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Under the conditions of this study the test substance was not sensitising.
Executive summary:

The test substance was applied as 60% paste in a concentration of 0.1 g/cm2 to the left upper arm of 54 volunteers. Following a 24 h exposure the contact areas were evaluated. The test persons were exposed 12 times within three weeks. Challenge was performed on previously unexposed sites on day 11 after the last exposure. No signs of irritation or other skin effects were observable during the induction and the challenge phase. Therefore under the conditions of this study the test substance was not sensitising.
