Abstract : The purpose of this report is to provide guidance for further entomological testing of the subject candidate insect repellents by means of laboratory animal studies. In addition, these data may be useful in developing preliminary safety guidelines for handling these compounds. Based on professional scientific judgement, the following recommendations are offered. a. Approve compounds AI3-38426, aAI3-39008, AI3-39010, AI3-30106, AI3-38264, AI3-38265, AI-38098, AI3-38099, and AI3-5903 for further entomological testing. b. Further recommended compounds AI3-38426, AI3-39008, and AI3-39010 should be used with caution around the eyes and mucosa. c. Compounds AI3-38426, AI3-39010, AI3-38265, and AI3-38099 should be resubmitted for mutagenie assay dependent upon recommendations from field studies. Keywords: Test and Evaluation.
