Potential biomarkers of skin sensitization in RAW264.7 mouse macrophages were investigated as alternatives to animal experiments and risk assessment. The concentrations that resulted in a cell viabili...
Opioid addiction is a growing public health problem, being currently considered an epidemic in the United States. Investigating the behavioral effects of opioids and the factors influencing their deve...
Cobalt (Co) exposure is associated with adverse health effects including skin sensitisation, asthma and interstitial lung fibrosis. Exposure to Co in industrial settings is often assessed using air sa...
Chemical skin sensitizers produce allergic contact dermatitis, which is one of the most frequent occupational diseases associated with chemical exposures. Skin exposure is the major route of exposure ...
With the exception for the potential skin and eye irritating effects of some proteases, and the well-documented potential for respiratory sensitization in case of work place exposure, enzymes in gener...
This study will assess the potential of tazarotene foam to cause sensitization during a 48 hour challenge following 21 days of exposure on the skin of healthy volunteers.
The risk of sensitization and contact dermatitis among workers exposed to epoxy resin systems (ERS) is high despite extensive preventive efforts, probably because skin exposure is often le...
This is a single center, randomized, controlled, within subject comparison, single dose study to determine the sensitization potential of SM04755 solution on normal skin under semi-occlusi...
The purpose of this study is to examine the body's response to relaxing and stimulating fragrances commonly used in aromatherapy.
This is a single center, randomized, controlled, within subject comparison, multiple dose study to determine the sensitization potential of M518101 on normal skin under occlusive patch con...
Tests or bioassays that measure the skin sensitization potential of various chemicals.
A contact dermatitis due to allergic sensitization to various substances. These substances subsequently produce inflammatory reactions in the skin of those who have acquired hypersensitivity to them as a result of prior exposure.
ACNE-like skin eruptions caused by exposure to CHLORINE-containing compounds. Exposure can be by inhalation, ingestion, or through the skin. Chloracne is often seen in people who have occupational contact with chlorinated pesticides, wood preservatives, and sealants.
Standards for limiting worker exposure to airborne contaminants. They are the maximum concentration in air at which it is believed that a particular substance will not produce adverse health effects with repeated daily exposure. It can be a time-weighted average (TLV-TWA), a short-term value (TLV-STEL), or an instantaneous value (TLV-Ceiling). They are expressed either as parts per million (ppm) or milligram per cubic meter (mg/m3).
Highly toxic compound which can cause skin irritation and sensitization. It is used in manufacture of azo dyes.
Anything that breaks the skin is a wound because when the skin is broken, there's a risk of germs getting into the body and causing an infection. Follow and track Wound Care News on BioPortfolio: Wound Car...
