Details on study design:
The sensitizing potential of CGA154281 was assessed in a multiple insult patch sensitization test in Hartley-Albino Guinea Pigs. Each group of ten male Guinea Pigs were treated with 500 mg CGA154281, which was moistened with water, or with 0.5 ml of a 0.05% ethanolic solution of 2,4-dinitrochlorobenzene (DNCB), which served as a positive control. The test compounds were applied to the left, shaved flank of the animals, covered by a gauze pad (ca. 16x28mm) , which was held in place by an adhesive dressing, and the animals were placed in restrainers for approximately six hours. After this period the dressings were removed. Test material was applied on days 1, 3, 6, 8, 10, 13, 15, 17, 20 and 22. The skin reactions were scored according to the Draize scheme approximately 24 hours after every application and also 48 hours after the applications on days 1 and 22.
On day 36 the animals were challenged as described above on the left flank and on a previously untreated site on the right rump. Skin reactions were scored 24 and 48 hours after the challenge.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
sensitising
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
All treated guinea pigs showed positive skin reactions to benoxacor after challenge on day 36. No skin reactions were recorded 24 hours after the initial application of benoxacor. It was concluded that benoxacor was a potential skin sensitiser.
The reactions seen were similar to those in the positive control group, exposed to DNCB.
Executive summary:

The sensitising potential of CGA154281 was assessed in a multiple insult patch sensitization test in Hartley-Albino Guinea Pigs. Groups of of ten male guinea pigs were treated with 500 mg CGA154281, which was moistened with water, or with 0.5 mL of a 0.05% ethanolic solution of 2,4-dinitrochlorobenzene (DNCB), which served as a positive control. The test compounds were applied to the left, shaved flank of the animalson days 1, 3, 6, 8, 10, 13, 15, 17, 20 and 22. On day 36 the animals were challenged as described above on the left flank and on the previously untreated right rump. Skin reactions were scored 24 and 48 hours after the challenge.
