Jet A and JP-8 are the major jet fuels used in civilian and military (US Air Force) flights, respectively. JP-8+100 is a new jet fuel recently introduced by the US Air Force. Besides lung exposure, skin is the potential route of exposure to jet fuels. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the skin sensitization potential of jet fuels (Jet A, JP-8 and JP-8+100) using murine Local lymph node assay (LLNA). Female CBA/Ca mice (8-12-weeks-old) were used in the study… CONTINUE READING
