NICEATM Requests Data and Information on Developmental Toxicity Test Methods

Catherine Sprankle, NICEATM

In a Federal Register notice published today, NICEATM requested available data and information on approaches and/or technologies currently used for identifying potential developmental toxicants. Submitted information will be used to assess the state of the science and determine technical needs for non-animal test methods used to evaluate the potential of chemicals to induce adverse effects in offspring.

Respondents should provide information on any activities relevant to the development or validation of alternatives to in vivo developmental toxicity test methods currently required by regulatory agencies, including data from non-animal chemical tests for developmental hazard potential. NICEATM also requests any available data resulting from in vivo developmental studies, ethical human or animal studies, or accidental human exposures, using the same chemicals.

Please respond by August 15. More information is available on the NICEATM website.
