Abstract:

Arthropods represent a potential disease threat to U.S. Military Forces consequently, a program to develop improved insect repellents was developed. The dermal sensitization potential of candidate insect repellents was determined using guinea pigs. Test substances CHF1, CHR2, and CHR3 were clearly non-sensitizing. CHR5 and CHR6 were irritating, possibly sensitizing, and should be retested. Author
