||The local lymph node assay (LLNA) is a relatively recent method for determining the degree of skin sensitization in mice. This study aimed at establishing correlations between results obtained by this method and those of human sensitization studies (human repeat insult patch tests and human maximization tests). For this purpose, results of LLNA tests and human tests were compared for 46 sensitizers. The degree of sensitization induced by these substances ranged through four levels of magnitude. Very good correlations were observed between LLNA tests and human tests. Four classes of classification are proposed for the degree of sensitization (low, medium, strong and very strong).
