In vitro and in vivo evaluation of the effect of barrier gels in nickel contact allergy.

Abstract

The protective effect of various ethylenediaminetetraacetate (EDTA) barrier gels on nickel skin penetration was investigated in an in vitro model using human skin. Application of the gels seemed to cause an increased release of nickel from nickel alloys. This nickel did not penetrate the skin barrier but was found to be immobilized on the skin surface.
