In vitro test system

Details on the study design:
The KeratinoSensTM cell line (test system) is an immortalized adherent cell line derived from HaCaT human keratinocytes, stably transfected with a selectable plasmid containing the luciferase gene under the transcriptional control of the Anti-oxidant Response Element (ARE) from a gene that is known to be up-regulated by contact sensitisers. The luciferase signal reflects the activation by sensitisers of endogenous Nrf2 dependent genes, and the dependence of the luciferase signal in the recombinant cell line on Nrf2 has been demonstrated. This allows quantitative measurement (by luminescence detection) of luciferase gene induction, using well established light producing luciferase substrates, as an indicator of the activity of the Nrf2 transcription factor in cells

Results and discussion

Positive control results:
Valid results with Effect > EC1.5 limit for positive response. At the highest concentration of positive control the response was 15 fold induction

In vitro / in chemico

Positive controls validity:
Other effects / acceptance of results:
Response in range 0.91 - 1.26, with highest response at 25mg/l of material tested (ca 10 mg/l actives)
At 50 mg/l there was significant cytotoxicty and 100% complete cytotoxicty (20 and 40mg/l actives)

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
The luciferase inihibition was below the limits considered to cause a positive response for sensitisation with a score of < 1.5.
The test was run up to the limit of cytotoxicty and is considered valid
The positive control gave a high response of 15.
Executive summary:

The substance is not considered to be sensitising on the basis of this study.
