||Conclusions of this criteria document, translation of a report finalized in April 1993: 4-aminodiphenylamine can lead to primary skin irritation in humans. Several cases of dermal sensitization have been described, but the sensitizing potential of the substance does not appear to be very great. Animal studies indicate that it is of moderate acute toxicity; repeated exposure may cause methaemoglobin formation, effects on the red blood cells and functional liver disturbances. It may also have genotoxic and teratogenic effects.
