Abstract:

The Holston Compounds designated Virgin DMSO TP014, DMSO Recycle Solvent TP013 and DMSO Evaporator Sludge TP015 were tested for dermal sensitization potential on guinea pigs. The study was conducted in compliance with the Good Laboratory Practice Regulations. The results from this study were not conclusive, but there was some evidence which suggests that the test compounds might be weak sensitizers. The test compounds caused mild irritation responses which were difficult to distinguish from weak sensitizing responses.
