Details on test animals and environmental conditions:
TEST ANIMALS- female (nulliparous and non-pregnant) CBA/JHsd
- Source: Harlan Sprague-Dawley (Frederick, Maryland, USA)
- Age at study initiation: About 5 weeks on the day of arrival. At study start (test day 0), mice were approximately 9 weeks old.
- Weight at study initiation: Test day 0- 18.7-25.3 grams
- Housing: All mice were housed 2-3 per cage in stainless steel, wire-mesh cages suspended above cage boards during quarantine. Prior to assignment to groups and during the dosing and resting phases of the study, each mouse was housed singly in stainless steel, wire-mesh cages suspended above cage boards. After final weighing (test day 5) until sacrifice, animals were housed 1 group per plastic shoebox cage with appropriate bedding.

- Temperature (°C): 18-26 degrees Celcius.
- Humidity (%): 30-70

Details on study design:
ANIMAL ASSIGNMENT AND TREATMENT- Prior to study start, mice were selected based upon adequate body weight gain and freedom from any ear abnormalities (e.g. torn, scratched), as determined in the pretest period, and were assigned to a group using a randomly generated, computer-based algorithm such that individual pretest body weights did not vary more than 20 % of the group mean.
- Name of test method: Mouse local lymph node assay (pooled and individual data for DPM calculations reported).
- Criteria used to consider a positive response: Statistically significant increases in cell proliferation in the test substance groups compared to the vehicle control group and/or stimulation indexes of greater than or equal to 3.0 indicated a positive response.

TREATMENT PREPARATION AND ADMINISTRATION: The test substance was prepared in the vehicle, including the 100 % concentration, which was prepared at 1 g/mL. All dose preparations were formulated fresh daily.
Twenty-five uL of the test substance were administered topically to the dorsum of each mouse ear for 3 consecutive days (test days 0-2). Test days 3-4 were days of rest followed by intravenous injection of 20 uCi of 3H-Thymidine per mouse on test day 5. Approximately 5 hours after the injection, animals were sacrificed by carbon dioxide asphyxiation, draining auricular lymph nodes were removed, and single cell suspensions were prepared. The single cell suspensions were incubated at 2-8 degrees Celcius overnight. On test day 6, the single cell suspensions were counted on a beta counter. The counts per minute (cpm) data were converted to disintegrations per minute (dpm). A stimulation index (SI) was derived from each experimental group by dividing the mean dpm of each experimental group by the mean dpm of the vehicle control group.
Positive control substance(s):
other: hexylcinnamaldehyde (25 %); prepared in 4:1 mixture of acetone:olive oil
Significance was judged at p<0.05 except for dpm data which were judged significant at <0.01. Lymph node dpm data were transformed to Log to obtain normality or homogenous variances.
Body weight and body weight gains were first analyzed by Levene's test for homgeneity and the Shapiro-Wilk test for normality. One-way analysis of variance followed by a Dunnett's test was performed if the preliminary test was not significant. The Kruskal-Wallis test followed by the Dunn's test was used in the preliminary test was significant.

The Cochran Armitage test was used to analyze trends of Clinical observations.

The Lymph node dpm data was first analyzed by Levene's test for homgeneity and the Shapiro-Wilk test for normality. One-way analysis of variance followed by a Dunnett's test was performed if the preliminary test was not significant. The Kruskal-Wallis test followed by the Dunn's test was used if the preliminary test was significant.
Or, a test for a lack of trend was performed on the preliminary data. If this result was not significant a sequential application of the Jonckheere-Terpstra trend test was applied. If a significance was identified a preliminary test for a pairwise comparison was performed.

Results and discussion

Positive control results:
The positive control produced a dermal sensitization response in the mice.

Remarks on result:
other: see Remark
Stimulation indexes of less than 3.0 were observed at all concentrations of the test substance. Therefore, the EC3 value (the estimated concentrationrequired to induce a threshold positive response, i.e., stimulation index=3) for the test substance under the conditions of this was not calculable.
other: disintegrations per minute (DPM)

Any other information on results incl. tables

No statistically significant differences in mean body weights or body weight gains compared to the vehicle control group were observed at any test concentration. No clinical signs of toxicity were observed in the study.
