5. Summary of Data Reported and Evaluation

5.1 Animal data

2,5-Diaminotoluene sulfate in commercial hair-dye formulations, or in experimental mixtures similar to those used as hair dyes, was inadequately tested by skin application on mice and rats. No data on 2,5-diaminotoluene or 2,5-diaminotoluene sulfate alone were available. No evaluation of their carcinogenicity 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)
