Executive summary:

Octenidine was tested in the Salmonella/microsome mutagenicty test according tom OECD 471 with the strains TA 98, 100, 102, 1535 and 1537 with and without metabolic activation. It induced no biologically relevant increases in the revertant colony numbers of any of the five test strains at any dose levels with or without metabolic activation. Octenidine is considered to be non-mutagenic in this bacterial reverse mutation assay.
