MAIN STUDY
A. INDUCTION EXPOSURE
- No. of exposures: 2
- Exposure period: injection on day 1, dermal application on day 7
- Test groups: 3 injections: 0.1mL Freund's adjuvant, 0.1mL 5% test substance in 2% Carboxymethylcellulose and 0.5% Cremophor, 0.1mL Freund's adjuvant with test substance 1:1, concentration 5%; dermal application: 5% in Vaseline
- Control group: the same than test group without test substance
- Site: two rows with 3 injections right and left of the scapular midline, dermal application on the injections sites
- Frequency of applications: 1
- Duration: single injections and 48h dermal exposure under occlusive conditions
- Concentrations: 5%

B. CHALLENGE EXPOSURE
- No. of exposures: 1
- Day(s) of challenge: 14 days after dermal induction (day 22)
- Exposure period: 24h
- Test groups: 0.1mL 25% test substance in 2% Carboxymethylcellulose and 0.5% Cremophor
- Control group: 0.1mL 2% Carboxymethylcellulose and 0.5% Cremophor
- Site: test substance on the right flank, vehicle on the left
- Concentrations: 25% and vehicle only
- Evaluation (hr after challenge): 48 and 72h

Positive control substance(s):
no
