Success for long-standing collaboration between BASF and Givaudan to develop and validate alternative methods
The world’s first toxicology testing strategy without animal testing has been approved by the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development). The testing strategy consists of three so-called alternative methods. They can be used to predict whether a substance causes allergic ...
The Institute for In Vitro Sciences (IIVS), with an established track record in the validation of alternatives to animal testing, is teaming up with BASF and Givaudan to validate an improved skin sensitization reactivity method to address the needs of toxicologists and regulators. Scientists at ...
UL, the science safety company, and Johns Hopkins University have embarked on joint research that has resulted in findings that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is superior in finding toxic substances to traditional animal testing. Beyond being more effective, UL's Cheminformatics REACHAcross™ ...
Application of fully functional cultured cells as alternative to animal testing
Sumitomo Chemical Co., Ltd. and BASF have agreed to collaborate on research into a more sustainable, in vitro system for chemical safety evaluation. Recent years have seen an increase in stringent regulations for registration of agricultural chemicals and pharmaceuticals, and the demand to ...
ECHA's second report to the European Commission on the use of alternative methods under REACH shows an increase in the use of these methods. The report's analysis is based on over 38,000 registration dossiers submitted for the 2010 and 2013 registration deadlines. According to the report, most ...
An international team led by King's College London and the San Francisco Veteran Affairs Medical Center (SFVAMC) has developed the first lab-grown epidermis – the outermost skin layer - with a functional permeability barrier akin to real skin. The new epidermis, grown from human pluripotent stem ...
New test reduces need for animal testing
An end to mascara testing on animals could be in sight thanks to tiny organisms nicknamed 'slipper' and 'eyelash'. Mascara is a mild irritant, and rabbits have, historically, been used to test how much discomfort new products can cause. However, a cheaper and more reliable test is now being ...
German Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection honors research team for developing alternative methods
BASF has been awarded the “32ndResearch Prize for the promotion of methodological work aimed at reducing and replacing animal experimentation” in Berlin. The research team “Experimental Toxicology and Ecology” received this honor for their methodological work in developing and implementing ...
A simple lab-based skin test which eliminates the risk of adverse reactions to new drugs, cosmetics and household chemicals has been developed by a Newcastle University, UK team. It uses real human skin and immune cells to show any reaction such as a rash or blistering indicating a wider immune ...
EU-funded research project developing in vitro test strategies to reduce or replace animal testing use gene expression analysis software
As of march 2013 there is a ban in the European Union (EU) on animal testing of ingredients for cosmetics. The ban applies to all new cosmetics and their ingredients sold in the EU, regardless of where in the world testing on animals was carried out. The 27 EU countries have had a ban on such ...
