||Irritancy testing in occupational dermatology: Comparison between two quick tests and the acute irritation induced by sodium lauryl sulphate
||Nov. 1996, Vol.76, No.6, p.450-452. 10 ref.
||This study is a comparison between two quick, non-invasive irritancy tests (using dimethyl sulfoxide and sodium hydroxide) with the time-consuming patch testing relying on sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS). No correlation between the "quick tests" and SLS tests was observed as a result of skin testing in 181 metal worker trainees. It is proposed to use a spectrum of different tests in occupational dermatology for predicting the individual's risk of developing irritant contact dermatitis.
