New Training Video on Replacing Animals in Testing

IIVS has produced a technical training video on non-animal methods to help scientists from industry and regulatory agencies perform the techniques in their own laboratories. The video explores a cell-based method for assessing Phototoxicity – or the potential for chemicals to cause damage after being exposed to light. The method is used widely around the world by many industries, including the cosmetics and pharmaceutical sectors. The video is available in English with subtitled versions in Chinese and Portugese. The video is supported by a grant from the European Partnership for Alternative Approaches to Animal Testing (EPAA). Watch the video.

Workshop Report from IIVS Toxicology Workshop Now Available

A Workshop Report is now available from the April 2016 IIVS Workshop, “In Vitro Exposure Systems and Dosimetry Assessment Tools for Inhaled Tobacco Products”.  The 2.5-day workshop, held April 4-6 in Bethesda, MD, brought together stakeholders from industry, government and academia to discuss considerations for exposure and dosimetry for non-animal testing. Uniquely focused on in vitro testing, the workshop should provide guidance for conducting the next generation of tobacco inhalation studies.
