Many chemicals can induce skin sensitization, and there is a pressing need for non-animal methods to give a quantitative indication of potency. Using two large published data-sets of skin sensitizers, we have allocated each sensitizing chemical to one of ten mechanistic categories, and then developed good QSAR models for the seven categories with a sufficient number of chemicals to allow modeling. Both internal and external validation checks showed that each model had good predictivity.
