Skin sensitisation

Endpoint conclusion
Additional information:

No studies were available for assessing the skin sensitisation potential of isobutyl ethyl xanthate or other xanthates.

A case of occupational allergic contact dermatitis to carbamates and xanthates is reported. The authors believe that xanthates and carbamates may cross-react because they share a common dithio grup. (Sasseville D., Muhn C., Al-Sowaidi M., McCill University Health Centre, Montral, QC, Canada)
