The study is comparable with OECD guideline 417 with acceptable
restrictions (no data about toxic effects; no data are available on
remaining radioactivity in carcass or total recovered amount resulting
in limitation of the validity concerning absortion rate). Suitable for
comparison of selected parameters with other species (see other study
records of Jeffcoat et al.1983).
Each of 3 monkeys received dermal 2 mg 14-formaldehyde in 200 µL
solution.The skin of monkeys seems to be less permeable to aqueous
formaldehyde than that of rodents (see other study records of the
authors). Only 0.44% of applied radioactivity was excreted via urine and
faeces; 0.37% was accounted for as 14CO2 in the air traps and 9.5% of
the applied radioactivity was found at the site of application. No data
are available on remaining carcass or total recovered amount.
