TOXMINDS INSIGHTS

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

Update on the development of a regulatory framework for developmental neurotoxicity testing with specific focus on non-animal testing approaches

Reports of developmental neurotoxicity (DNT) incidences have become increasing over the last 2-3 decades, triggering the need for higher focus on this endpoint and an efficient, tiered testing approach to allow identifying developmental neurotoxicants.
