5. Summary of Data Reported and Evaluation

5.1 Animal data

2,4-Diaminoanisole sulfate present in a commercial hair-dye formulation or in an experimental formulation similar to those used as hair dyes was inadequately tested by skin application in mice and rats. No data on 2,4-diaminoanisole or its sulfate alone were available. No evaluation of the carcinogenicity of these compounds could 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 evaluations: Vol. 27 (1982); Suppl. 7 (1987) (p. 61: Group 2B); Vol. 79 (2001)

For definition of Groups, see Preamble Evaluation.
