Sensitization to the isothiazolinone biocide. Report of the Swiss Contact Dermatitis Research Group 1988-1990
The rate of sensitization to isothiazolinones (Kathon CG) detected in Switzerland rose from 3.5% (out of 2,491 patients) in 1987 to 6.3% (out of 982 patients) in 1988 and 5.6% (out of 2,295 patients) in 1989-90. This rate of sensitization appears to be related to the more and more widespread use of isothiazolinone biocide in cosmetics, domestic products and in industry.
