Principles of method if other than guideline:
The modified Local Lymph Node Assay (IMDS) was performed on 24 female NMRI mice of the strain Crl:NMRI BR (6 animals/test item group and 6 control animals) to determine if there is any specific (sensitizing) or non-specific (irritant) stimulating potential of the test item Glebpigment E4GN.

other: see Remark
A modified Local Lymph Node Assay (IMDS) was carried out in mice. The modifications refer to the measurement of cell proliferation by cell counting instead of radioactive labeling. In addition, the acute inflammatory skin reaction is determined to discriminate specific from non-specific activation of immune competent cells in the draining lymph nodes, as also recommend in the update of OECD TG 429. 1.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Executive summary:

Mice were treated with vehicle, 2 %, 10 % or 50 % Gelbpigment E4GN in DMF.

The NMRI mice did not show an increase in the stimulation indices for cell counts or for weights of the draining lymph nodes after application of the test item Gelbpigment E4GN.

The “positive level”, which is 1.4 for the cell count index, was never reached or exceeded in any dose group.

These findings were verified by the results obtained with the positive control compound Alpha Hexyl Cinnamic Aldehyde.
