Forty C3H/HeJ male mice were painted 3 times per week for their lifespan on the skin of the back, clipped free of fur, with pentaerythritol acrylate-HF as a 15% dilution in acetone at an average dose of 0.0026 grass pentaerythritol acrylate-HF/mouse/application. A negative control group of 40 C3H/HeJ male mice received repeated skin paintings of undiluted acetone at an average dose of 0.012 grams/mouse/application. No skin tumors were observed in the group of mice painted with pentaerythritol acrylate-HF. One mouse in the group painted with acetone had a histologically verified squamous cell carcinoma of the skin near the right eye which may or may not have been due to treatment.
