Endpoint:
skin sensitisation: in vivo (non-LLNA)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
1997-04-01 to 1997-05-12
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: A well conducted study according to guidelines and done in compliance with GLP.
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
OECD Guideline 406 (Skin Sensitisation)
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method B.6 (Skin Sensitisation)
GLP compliance:
yes
Type of study:
guinea pig maximisation test
Justification for non-LLNA method:
The study was performed inn 1997, prior to the publication of OECD Guideline 429 for the LLNA study and the REACH requirements. The result from the guinea pig maximisation test was conclusive and showed the test substance to be an extreme sensitizer therefore it serves no purpose to repeat the study.

Skin Reactions Observed After Intradermal Induction

Very slight to well defined erythema was noted at the intra dermal induction sites of all test group animals at the 24 and 48-hour observations. Very slight erythema was noted at the intra dermal induction sites of nine control group animals at the 24-hour observation and in eight control group animals at the 48-hour observation.

Skin Reactions Observed After Topical Induction

After topical induction, very slight to well-defined erythema and incidents of very slight to slight oedema were noted at the induction sites of all test group animals at the 1and 24-hour observations. Bleeding from the intra dermal induction sites was noted in seven test group animals at the 1-hour observation. Other skin reactions noted were peeling of the skin and small superficial scattered scabs.

Bleeding from the intra dermal sites was noted in five of the control group animals at the 1 hour observation. No signs of erythema or oedema were noted at the treatment sites of the control group animals at either the 1or 24 hour observation.

Skin Reactions Observed After Topical Challenge

Undiluted as Supplied

Positive skin responses (very slight – well defined erythema) and incidents of very slight to slight oedema were noted at the challenge sites of 18 of the test group animals after 24 hours and 14 after 48 hours. Peeling of the skin was noted at the challenge sites of three test group animals at the 48 hour observation.

No skin reactions were noted at the challenge sites of the control group animals after either 24 or 48 hours.

 

75% v/v in Arachis Oil

Positive skin responses (very slight – well defined erythema) and incidents of very slight to slight oedema were noted at the challenge sites of 16 of the test group animals after 24 hours and 11 after 48 hours. Peeling of the skin was noted at the challenge sites of three test group animals at the 48 hour observation.

No skin reactions were noted at the challenge sites of the control group animals after either 24 or 48 hours.

 

 

No effects on the bodyweight gains of guinea pigs in the test group, between day 0 and day 24 were observed.

 

Interpretation of results:
Category 1 (skin sensitising) based on GHS criteria
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
2,2,6,6-Tetramethyl-4-oxopiperidinooxy was sensitizing to guinea pigs in a maximization study at a challenge concentration of 75%.
Executive summary:

A GLP study was performed to assess the contact sensitisation potential of 2,2,6,6,-tetramethyl-4-oxopiperidinooxy in the albino guinea pig. The study was performed in accordance with OECD guideline 406.

Twenty test and ten control animals were used in the main study.

The concentrations of test materials in the induction and the challenge phases were selected based on the results of sighting tests and were as follows:

Intra dermal induction: 5% w/v in arachis oil BP

Topical Induction: Undiluted as supplied

Topical Challenge: undiluted as supplied and 75% in arachis oil.

After topical induction, very slight to well defined erythema and very slight to slight oedema were noted at the induction sites of all test group animals at the 1 and 24 hour observations.

On challenge, a positive skin response was observed in 90% of the test animals after 24 hours and 70% after 48 hours. No positive skin reactions were noted in the control animals after 24 or 48 hours.

Based on the results the test material, 2,2,6,6-tetramethyl-4-oxopiperidinooxy, is classified as an extreme sensitiser to guinea pig skin.

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
adverse effect observed (sensitising)

Respiratory sensitisation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no study available

Justification for classification or non-classification

No data is available to assess respiratory sensitisation; however the guinea pig maximisation study demonstrates conclusively that the substance is a skin sensitizer. According to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 the substance should be classified as follows:

Skin sensitiser 1, H317 May cause allergic skin reaction
