TREATMENT OF TEST MATERIAL PRIOR TO TESTING
The test substance formulations (w/w) were prepared within 4 hours prior to each treatment. No adjustment was made for specific gravity of the vehicle. Homogeneity was obtained to visually acceptable levels. The formulations were stirtred with magnetic stirrer immediately prior to dosing.

Any other information on results incl. tables

No mortalities occurred, no symptoms of systemic toxicity, no changes in body weights and body weight gain were observed.

A slight irritation (grade 1) of the ears was seen in all animals treated with 25 and 50%, but this was considered not to have a toxicologically significant effect on the activity of the nodes. No oedema were observed.

All auricular lymph nodes were considered normal in size, no macroscopic abnormalities of the surrounding area were noted in any of the animals.

Interpretation of results:

Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
not skin sensitizing
Executive summary:

To determine the skin-sensitizing properties of estrone the mouse local lymph node assay was performed on mice according to OECD guideline 429. The main study was conducted with the following test substance concentrations: 10%, 25% and 50%.

All animals treated with 25 and 50% showed slight irritation of the ears, but this had no toxicological significant effect on the activity of the lymph nodes. The mean DPM/animal values were 283 (vehicle control), 449 (10%), 470 (25%) and 268 (50%). The SI values calculated were 1.6 (10%), 1.7 (25%) and 0.9 (50%). Since there was no indication that the test substance elicits an SI above or equal to 3 when tested up to 50%, estrone was considered not to be a skin sensitizer.
