How to Foster ‘New Approach Methodology’ Toxicologists

The need to reduce, refine and replace animal experimentation has led to a boom in the establishment of new approach methodologies (NAMs). This promising trend brings the hope that the replacement of animals by using NAMs will become increasingly accepted by regulators, included in legislation, and consequently more often implemented by industry.

Case Studies in Skin Sensitization Assessment using OECD Guidance

Skin sensitization assessments for chemicals, cosmetics, and many pharmaceuticals are required by regulatory bodies for hazard assessment and approval. In June 2021, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) published the new guideline (TG 497) for skin sensitization.

High-throughput prediction of human organ toxicity

This innovative method (Su et al. 2016) was awarded with the Lush Science Price 2016 and combines cell-based assays with bioinformatics. The method predicts specifically toxicity to renal proximal tubular cells, which are one of the main targets for chemical-induced toxicity in the kidney.
