TOXMINDS INSIGHTS

Mutagenicity assessment of drug impurities according to the ICH M7 (R1) guideline and the role of expert review

The evaluation of the genotoxicity potential of drug impurities has been the focus of regulatory recommendations issued by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA, 2008), European Medicines Agency (EMA, 2006 and 2010), and International Conference for Harmonization (ICH, 2014, 2015). In 2017, the ICH M7 issued a revised guideline providing a framework for the assessment and control of mutagenic impurities in pharmaceuticals.

Evaluation of in vitro assays for the assessment of the skin sensitisation hazard of functional polysiloxanes and silanes

A published research programme investigating the skin sensitisation potential of a group of functional polysiloxanes and silanes in vivo and in vitro is an instructive example of what can happen in ‘real life’ when testing a group of chemical substances that seemingly belong to the same class of chemicals for skin sensitisation
