2-Hydroxyethyl Methacrylate Sensitization

Common Name(s)

2-Hydroxyethyl Methacrylate Sensitization

2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate sensitization occurs after exposure to the chemical 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate. Sensitization means that after exposure to the chemical, the body will recognize it and respond to it at lower doses. Sensitization can then lead to harmful reactions such as allergic skin reactions and skin irritation. 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate is used in dental work, so dentists and dental assistants are at the greatest risk.

Author(s): Izumi Fukumoto, Atsushi Tamura, Mitsuaki Matsumura, Hiroyuki Miura, Nobuhiko Yui

Journal:

 

The immunostimulatory effects of the representative dental resin monomer 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA), a HEMA derivative that does not contain a double bond (2-hydroxyethyl isobutyrate, HEIB), and polymerized water-soluble oligomers of HEMA (PHEMA) were investigated. It is known ...
