Results and discussion

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
study cannot be used for classification
Conclusions:
Sensitization became obvious at early stages of poisoning in the absence of any pointers to systemic toxic action; as the signs of intoxication developed, allergic tests became negative but again took on a positive value closer to the cessation of experiment; o-dichlorobenzene triggered the production of antibodies to erythrocyte lysate and of antitissue antibodies to autoantigenes from the renal tissue (no further data).
Executive summary:

Sensitization became obvious at early stages of poisoning in the absence of any pointers to systemic toxic action; as the signs of intoxication developed, allergic tests became negative but again took on a positive value closer to the cessation of experiment; o-dichlorobenzene triggered the production of antibodies to erythrocyte lysate and of antitissue antibodies to autoantigenes from the renal tissue (no further data).
