TEST ANIMALS
- Source: Envigo RMS B.V., Inc. (Netherlands)
- Age at study initiation: 11-12 weeks (pre-test), 8-9 weeks (main study)
- Weight at study initiation: 19.4 +/- 1 g (main study)
- Housing: by group
- Diet (e.g. ad libitum): ad libitum
- Water (e.g. ad libitum): ad libitum
- Acclimation period: at least 5 days

ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS
- Temperature (°C): 22 +/- 2
- Humidity (%): 45-65
- Photoperiod (hrs dark / hrs light): 12/12

Vehicle:
propylene glycol
Remarks:
purity 99%
Concentration:
Based on a pre-test with concentrations of 25% and 10% substance, 10% was the highest concentration that could be achieved whilst avoiding local skin irritation. Therefore, the main study was conducted at concentrations of 2, 5, and 10% test substance.

$Mean DPM/animal was determined by dividing the sum of the measured values from lymph nodes of all animals within a group by the number of animals in that group (5 animals)

* mean DPM value for the group was significantly higher than the corresponding control value (ANOVA Dunnett-test, p=0.000)

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
adverse effect observed (sensitising)
Additional information:

1,3,5-Benzenetricarboxylic acid, copper (2+) salt (2:3) was tested in the LLNA at concentrations of 2, 5, and 10%, resulting in stimulation indices of 1.74, 4.25, and 7.67. The calculated EC3 value was 3.3% (w/w).

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no study available

Justification for classification or non-classification

Testing of 1,3,5 -Benzenecarboxylic acid, copper (2 +) salt (2:3) derived an EC3 value of 3.5% in the LLNA. According to Regulation (EU) 1272/2008, classification as skin sensitizer (Cat. 1B, H317) is warranted.
