During the induction phase the guinea pigs in Group I showed some skin
reactions when injected with 10% (first two injections) and 5% (third
injection) solution, so the last seven injections were made with a 1%
solution of P-1355. None of the animals in Group III showed any skin
reactions. The animals in Group II showed mild to necrotic skin
reactions during the entire induction period. At challenge, Group I
(treatment group) and Group III (negative control) guinea pigs were
intradermally injected with 1.0% solution of P-1355, and none of the
animals in Group I showed any skin reactions, but two animals at 24 h
and one animal at 48 h in Group III showed mild reactions.

The dermal sensitization potential of nitroethane was examined using the
method of Landsteiner and Jacobs. Nitroethane (P-1355) was a
non-sensitiser to the guinea pigs under the conditions of this test. The
positive control DNCB gave an expected positive response.
