Abstract The slight irritant effect of N-phenyl-1-naphthylamine (PAN) observed in animals is not seen in humans; contact dermatitis patients react positively to PAN in patch tests. An increased tumour incidence was observed in a study of workers exposed to PAN and other substances, but this increase could not be attributed to exposure to PAN alone. Available studies do not allow an evaluation of toxicity after repeated administration.
