Administrative data

Endpoint:
skin sensitisation: in vivo (non-LLNA)
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Comparable to guideline study with acceptable restrictions (no information on purity of the test material; both flanks were exposed during challenge, no reliability check done, no positive control used. Method given in very summarized form).

Materials and methods

Test guideline
Qualifier:
equivalent or similar to
Guideline:
OECD Guideline 406 (Skin Sensitisation)
Deviations:
yes
Remarks:
no information on purity of the test material; both flanks were exposed during challenge, no reliability check done, no positive control used. Method given in very summarized form.
GLP compliance:
not specified
Type of study:
Buehler test
Justification for non-LLNA method:
A non-LLNA test is available that was performed prior to the current data requirements, stipulated in Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006. In accordance with the same Regulation, the data were included to avoid unnecessary testing.
