Although the tissue response to chemical irritation in vivo is humorally mediated, in vitro approaches have almost exclusively concentrated on assessments of the primary toxic response to chemical insult. This approach has been applied to tissue-specific, differentiated cell types, such as mast cells, macrophages, polymorphonuclear cells and keratinocytes, in which functional endpoints such as degranulation, phagocytosis, migration and keratinisation or stratification have been measured.
