Integrated Testing Strategies for In Vitro Skin Sensitization Testing

IIVS is pleased to bring you a webinar discussing Integrated Testing Strategies (ITS) that can be used for the replacement of animal testing in skin sensitization assessment. Dr. Kimberly Norman of IIVS, along with invited guest speakers Dr. Andreas Natsch of Givaudan Dr. Susanne Kolle of BASF, will present the technologies behind the KeratinoSens Assay, the Direct Peptide Reactivity Assay (DPRA), and the human-Cell Line Activation Test (h-CLAT). Following inter-laboratory validation studies, ECVAM has indicated that each of these methods may be considered for inclusion in an ITS for hazard identification. Due to the complex cascade of events underlying skin sensitization, a combination of methods will likely be necessary to achieve replacement of animals. The speakers will present some examples which describe how these methods may be used in combination with one another to predict skin sensitization hazard.
