EURL ECVAM publishes recommendations on use of non-animal approaches for skin sensitization testing
“The JRC’s European Union Reference Laboratory for alternatives to animal testing (EURL ECVAM) has published its recommendation on the use of non-animal approaches for skin sensitisation (allergy) testing. This document builds on the progress made in the area since the publication of the EURL ECVAM strategy in 2013 and provides EURL ECVAM views on the latest two methods for skin sensitisation, the LuSens and the U-SENS™, peer-reviewed by the EURL ECVAM Scientific Advisory Committee (ESAC) and on Defined Approaches which are based on the integration of different kinds of non-animal data.”
