CRPs, label warnings suggested for MAcid artificial nail products -- Harvard's Woolf.

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

ARTIFICIAL NAIL PRODUCTS WITH M-ACID: LABEL WARNINGS, CRPs RECOMMENDED by Alan Woolf, MD, Harvard Medical School pediatrics division, and Judith Shaw, education coordinator, Massachusetts Poison Control System, in a presentation at the Pediatric Academic Societies' annual meeting in Washington, D.C. May 2-6. Based on an analysis of two sets of adverse exposure data on artificial nail primers containing methacrylic acid, a known corrosive, Woolf and Shaw concluded: "Methacrylic acid-containing artificial nail products are hazardous to children and require better injury prevention measures," particularly in light of the moving trend toward application of artificial nails in the home rather than in a professional setting. Woolf and Shaw's data analysis has been submitted for publication.
