Quantitative modelling of human potency D W Roberts* A M Api and T W Schultz With acknowledgement to Nora Aptula How well does LLNA model human potency? Api, Lalko and Basketter, 2015. Correlation between experimental human and murine skin sensitization induction thresholds Cutaneous and Ocular Toxicology 34 (4) 298-302 Overall good agreement between EC3 and NOEL, with some outliers Group 1 good agreement 42 cases Group 2 LLNA underpredicts NOEL 7 cases Group 3 LLNA overpredicts NOEL 7 cases For regression analysis Group 1 (good agreement) Remove cases where EC3 or NOEL is given as x Remove cases footnoted No sensitization was observed in human
predictive studies. Doses reported reflect the highest concentration tested, not necessarily the highest achievable NOEL This leaves 31 cases Regression analysis logNOEL vs logEC3 5 4.5 4 3.5 f(x) = 0 x + 3.42 R = 0 3 2.5

EC3 can be used directly to define NOEL If outliers can be recognised Can we model human potency directly from chemistry?

The QMM predicts (assuming NOEL = predicted EC3): Benzaldehyde NOEL 1078 (actual 590) factor of 1.8 Vanillin NOEL 3935 (actual 1181) factor of 3.3 Within/close to 95% confidence limits of logNOEL vs logEC3 regression Underpredicted potency: trans-2hexenal and 6-methyl-3,5-heptadienal Michael acceptors, volatile but NOEL potency < predicted from Michael acceptor QMM, so volatility alone cannot explain the large underpredictions Impurities (eg from aldol dimerisation) in samples tested in HRIPT may be responsible Underpredicted potency 2-methoxy-4methylphenol OH OH O

MA QMM prediction Me 2-nonynoate 625 24 450 Me 2-octynoate <125 118 412 Simplest interpretation: The EC3 value of 625 for methyl 2-nonynoate is correct
The NOEL value of 24 for methyl 2-nonynoate is anomalous The EC3 value of <125 for methyl 2-octynoate is anomalous The NOEL of 118 for methyl 2-octynoate is anomalous This pattern suggests that the recorded potency values are influenced by potent impurities present in the samples tested, except for methyl 2-nonynoate (LLNA) which must have contained only insignificant levels. 20th century literature says that potency of these ynoates is low when freshly synthesised but increases with age (English and Rycroft 1988) consistent with the impurity interpretation QMM: pEC3 (mol%) = 0.24logk + 2.11 Roberts, D.W., Natsch, A.
