Abstract
Appropriate analyses revealed no evidence for systemic absorption of Morestan or secondary skin photosensitization via abnormal porphyrin production in exposed individuals. Limited animal studies have produced positive skin reactions in rats. In the laboratory, photoactivity has been demonstrated in nitro with an interesting biological test. Prompt photodecomposition of the compound occurs with unknown reaction product(s) which are under study elsewhere. Evidence was found that under special conditions Morestan can also produce simple irritations and true allergic contact dermatitis.
