5. Summary of Data Reported and Evaluation

5.1 Animal data

In the only available study, a hair-dye formulation containing 1,2-diamino-4-nitrobenzene mixed with 1,4-diamino-2-nitrobenzene was tested in mice by skin application. No data on 1,2-diamino-4-nitrobenzene alone were available. No evaluation of the carcinogenicity of this compound can be made.

5.2 Human data

No case reports or epidemiological studies were available to the Working Group (see, however, 'General Remarks on the Substances Considered').

Subsequent evaluation: Suppl. 7 (1987) (p. 61: Group 3)

For definition of Groups, see Preamble Evaluation.
