Preclinical safety evaluation of human gene therapy products. (1/1374)

Human gene therapy products include naked DNA and viral as well as non-viral vectors containing nucleic acids. There is limited experience on the preclinical toxicity studies necessary for the safety evaluation of these products, which have been outlined in several recently released guidelines. Requirements for the preclinical safety evaluation of human gene therapy products are both specific and non-specific. All key preclinical studies should be performed in compliance with Good Laboratory Practices. Non-specific requirements are in fact common to all pharmaceutical products. Critical specific issues to be addressed are: the safety evaluation of the vector and the toxicity of the expressed protein(s), which are the two components of gene therapy products, the quality of the test article, the selection of animal species, and the verification that the administration method successfully transports the gene of interest, with the vector, to the target site(s). The treatment schedule should mimic the intended human therapeutic design. The host's immune response against the gene therapy product has to be evaluated to detect possible adverse effects and immune neutralization by antibodies. The biodistribution of the gene of interest is also essential and can be evaluated by molecular biology techniques, such as PCR. Specific confinement is required for the safe manipulation of viral vectors.  (+info)

The contribution of acute toxicity in animals to occupational exposure limits of chemical substances. (2/1374)

The correlations of lethal doses of various industrial chemicals for rats and mice with occupational exposure limit values were investigated. 50% lethal dose (LD50) values obtained by oral (p.o.) and intraperitoneal (i.p.) injection and 50% lethal concentration (LC50) values obtained by inhalation exposure were collected from Registry of Toxic Effects of Chemical Substances (RTECS). Threshold Limit Value (Time-Weighted Average) (TLVs-TWA) and Threshold Limit Value (Short Term Exposure Limit) (TLVs-STEL) recommended by American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) were used as exposure limits. TLVs-TWA or TLVs-STEL and LD50 or LC50 values obtained for the rats were plotted on logarithmic scales on the ordinate and abscissa, respectively. High correlations were obtained between these parameters. The order of correlations was: TLVs-STEL vs. LC50s > TLVs-TWA vs. LC50s > TLVs-TWA vs. LD50s i.p. > TLVs vs. LD50s p.o. The same calculations for the relationship between TLVs and lethal doses in mice were also performed. The order of the three types of correlations was same as that of the rats; however, correlation coefficients for TLVs-STEL vs. LC50s and for TLVs-TWA vs. LC50s obtained in mice were smaller than those in rats. TLVs-TWA are, therefore, well correlated with LC50 values rather than LD50 values, particularly with those in rats. High correlations between TLVs-STEL vs. LC50s were also obtained, as had been expected before calculation. The equation: TLV-TWA = 10b x (LC50)a can be obtained from these plottings, where the values a and b are taken from each linear regression line. TLV-TWA for each chemical can be calculated by using LC50 and the equation. The upper and lower 95% confidence limits for calculated TLV-TWA were TLV-TWA (calculated from LC50) x 22.9 and TLV-TWA (calculated)/22.9, respectively, where LC50 for rats expressed in ppm x hr was used.  (+info)

The marginalization of hormesis. (3/1374)

Despite the substantial development and publication of highly reproducible toxicological data, the concept of hormetic dose-response relationships was never integrated into the mainstream of toxicological thought. Review of the historical foundations of the interpretation of the bioassay and assessment of competitive theories of dose-response relationships lead to the conclusion that multiple factors contributed to the marginalization of hormesis during the middle and subsequent decades of the 20th Century. These factors include the following: (a) the close association of hormesis with homeopathy, which led to the hostility of modern medicine toward homeopathy, thereby creating a guilt-by-association framework, and the carryover influence of that hostility toward hormesis in the judgements of medically based pharmacologists/toxicologists; (b) the emphasis of high-dose effects linked with a lack of appreciation of the significance of the implications of low-dose stimulatory effects; (c) the lack of an evolution-based mechanism(s) to account for hormetic effects; and (d) lack of appropriate scientific advocates to counter aggressive and intellectually powerful critics of the hormetic perspective.  (+info)

Chemical hormesis: its historical foundations as a biological hypothesis. (4/1374)

Despite the long history of hormesis-related experimental research, no systematic effort to describe its early history has been undertaken. The present paper attempts to reconstruct and assess the early history of such research and to evaluate how advances in related scientific fields affected the course of hormesis-related research. The purpose of this paper is not only to satisfy this gap in current knowledge but also to provide a foundation for the assessment of how the concept of hormetic dose-response relationships may have affected the nature of the bioassay, especially with respect to hazard assessment practices within a modern risk assessment framework.  (+info)

Serum vitellogenin levels and reproductive impairment of male Japanese Medaka (Oryzias latipes) exposed to 4-tert-octylphenol. (5/1374)

The induction of synthesis of the "female" yolk precursor protein vitellogenin (VTG) in male fish by estrogenic chemicals in the environment has been demonstrated in many recent reports. However, little is known about the organismal and biological significance of this phenomenon. To examine the relationship between VTG production in male fish and reproductive impairment, adult male medaka were exposed to 4-tert-octylphenol (OP), a known environmental estrogen, in concentrations ranging from 20 to 230 ppb for 21 days, under flow-through conditions. Following exposure, male fish were mated, in the absence of OP, with unexposed females. Breeding groups composed of exposed males and control females produced about 50% fewer eggs than control groups. VTG levels in serum of male fish increased with increasing OP exposure concentration and decreased after OP exposure was discontinued. Nevertheless, significant correlations (p<0.01) were observed between VTG levels in exposed male fish and 1) OP exposure concentrations, 2) percent of fertilized eggs, and 3) survival of embryos. OP-induced VTG synthesis and reproductive impairment appear to be closely linked phenomena. Histological examination indicated spermatogenesis in OP-exposed fish was inhibited, and some exposed fish had oocytes in their testes. Finally, OP caused a significant increase in the number of abnormally developing embryos, suggesting that OP may be genotoxic as well as estrogenic.  (+info)

Demonstration of the pathogenic effect of point mutated keratin 9 in vivo. (6/1374)

A wild type keratin 9 (K9) cDNA and a point mutated keratin 9 cDNA were injected subcutaneously into mouse skin. The hemagglutinin tag staining of the wild type K9 cDNA injected specimens mainly showed a homogeneous pattern, whereas the point mutated K9 cDNA injected specimens mainly showed a granular pattern in the suprabasal cells. Double staining of K9 and the endogenous keratin revealed the incorporation of de novo synthesized K9 into the keratin network. These results demonstrate that (1) a naked DNA transfection into mouse skin can detect the pathogenic changes of point mutated keratin in vivo and (2) the keratin 9 mutation disrupts the keratin network formation in the suprabasal cells in vivo.  (+info)

Changes in thyroid gland morphology after acute acrylamide exposure. (7/1374)

High exposure to the acrylamide monomer has been associated with neuropathy and neurotoxic effects. Chronic lower exposure causes endocrine disruption associated with thyroid, testicular, and mammary tumors. To investigate mechanisms of endocrine disruption, short-term, low-level oral dosing studies were conducted. Weanling female Fischer 344 rats were acclimatized for two weeks before dosing. Controls were given distilled water by gavage and rats in other groups were given acrylamide at doses of 2 mg/kg/day and 15 mg/kg/day for 2 or 7 days by gavage. Twenty-four h after the last dose, the rats were killed by decapitation. Trunk blood was collected for hormone analyses and tissues for histopathological examination. There were no toxicity-related deaths, no clinical signs of toxicity, and no significant difference in the mean body weight of animal groups. Histopathological examination of select tissues showed no lesions of pathologic significance. Plasma thyroxine (T4), thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), prolactin (PRL), and pituitary TSH and PRL analyses did not reveal significant changes between control vs. treated rats. In the 7-day study, however, there was a slight dose-dependent increase in plasma T4 and a slight dose-dependent decrease in plasma TSH. Thyroid gland morphometry showed a significant (p < 0.05) decrease in the colloid area and a significant increase (p < 0.05) in the follicular cell height of treated rats as compared to controls. The follicular area shrinkage was similar in both studies. These results show a very early endocrine response to very low levels of toxic insult and opens other venues to further investigate the mechanisms of endocrine disruption by acrylamide.  (+info)

Effects of acute exposure to PCBs 126 and 153 on anterior pituitary and thyroid hormones and FSH isoforms in adult Sprague Dawley male rats. (8/1374)

3,3'4,4',5-Pentachlorobiphenyl (PCB 126) and 2,2',4,4',5,5'-hexachlorobiphenyl (PCB 153) were administered to adult male rats in order to identify sensitive indicators of endocrine disruption. We tested the hypothesis that PCB exposure modifies follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) pituitary isoforms, as well as the pituitary and serum concentrations of FSH, luteinizing hormone (LH), growth hormone, prolactin, and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH). Effects on serum levels of thyroxine (T4) and testosterone (T), and prostate androgen receptor content, were also tested. In one experiment, 5 groups of 8 rats each received two i.p. injections, one day apart, of either corn oil or 6.25, 25, 100 or 400 micrograms/kg/day of PCB 126. Decreases (p < 0.05) in the serum concentrations of T4 and LH started at doses of 25 and 100 micrograms/kg/day, respectively. Serum FSH concentrations were reduced (p = 0.07) in the highest dose group. In contrast, pituitary content of FSH and LH increased with PCB-126 doses (p = 0.004, p = 0.002, respectively). Despite changes in reproductive hormones, PCB-126 had no effect on the androgen receptor content of the prostate. The effect of PCB-126 was tested in the hemicastrated rat, and suggested adverse effects on testosterone secretion. To test the effects of PCB exposure on FSH pituitary isoforms, 4 groups of 10 male rats received two i.p. injections, one day apart, of either corn oil, PCB 153 (25 mg/kg/day), estradiol-17 beta (E2; 20 micrograms/kg/day), or PCB 126 (0.1 mg/kg/day). Serum T4 levels were higher (p < 0.01) in the E2 and PCB 153 groups, and slightly reduced in the PCB 126-treated groups, compared to controls. Simultaneous purification of pituitary FSH and TSH isoforms was performed by HPLC, using two chromatofocusing columns in series. In contrast to TSH isoforms, the distribution of FSH isoforms over the chromatography run differed slightly between treatment groups; the amounts of FSH isoform eluted during the pH gradient were lower (p < 0.05) in E2 and PCB 153-treated rats than in control or PCB 126-treated rats. The similarity between the effects of E2 and PCB 153 on T4 and FSH isoforms supports the contention that PCB 153 possesses estrogenic properties. Serum LH and T4 concentrations were the most sensitive and practical endocrine indicators of PCBs 126 and 153 exposure in male rats.  (+info)

Partly cited from SIAR for SIAM 23 (Jeju, Korea, October 17-20, 2006): Studies in Animals No studies have been performed to explicitly address the question of reproductive effects in animals caused by 3-isocyanatomethyl-3,5,5-trimethylcyclohexyl isocyanate. However, relevant information can be found in studies on different endpoints. Histopathological results of a subacute 28-day inhalation study in rats according to OECD TG 412 (adjusted to fulfill both the TSCA § 798.2250 as well as EU Guideline 92/69/EEC) showed no effects on the reproductive organs (ovaries, oviducts and testes) at tested concentrations of up to 4.1 mg/m3. Testes and ovary weights were also not affected. The NOAEC for general toxicity is 0.24 mg/m3. For further details on general toxicity see chapter 7.5.3 (Bayer AG, 2003). Based on the results there are no indications for specific adverse effects on the reproductive organs following 28-day treatment with up to 4.1 mg/m3despite the fact that already at 1.05 mg/m3the ...

Development of a rapid, sensitive and cost-effective method for toxicity assessment of commonly used nanoparticles is urgently needed for the sustainable development of nanotechnology. A neural cell with high sensitivity and conductivity has become a potential candidate for a cell chip to investigate toxicity of environmental influences. A neural cell immobilized on a conductive surface has become a potential tool for the assessment of nanotoxicity based on electrochemical methods. The effective electrochemical monitoring largely depends on the adequate attachment of a neural cell on the chip surfaces. Recently, establishment of integrin receptor specific ligand molecules arginine-glycine-aspartic acid (RGD) or its several modifications RGD-Multi Armed Peptide terminated with cysteine (RGD-MAP-C), C(RGD)4 ensure farm attachment of neural cell on the electrode surfaces either in their two dimensional (dot) or three dimensional (rod or pillar) like nano-scale arrangement.

A disk-shaped thin plate or a long-sized thin plate having a roll appearance housed in a casing in which openings for penetration of test substance are formed and on which diffusion-limiting membranes are adhered to cover each openings. Also a driving mechanism for moving the thin plate is provided with the casing. The casing thus houses the thin plate and is provided with the driving mechanism and is positioned in a test apparatus body having a concentration measuring electrode therein. Multiple measurments of concentration of a test substance are carried out by moving the thin plate by the driving mechanism to position the diffusion-limiting membrane having the test solution deposited thereon to the position available to contact with the concentration measuring electrode, while keeping the casing placed in the test apparatus body. As a result, a plurality of measurements of concentration of the test substance is carried out easily.
I have been working with a team of EPA colleagues to create an on-line tool, Sequence Alignment to Predict Across Species Susceptibility (SeqAPASS), that will help both researchers and regulators readily use available protein sequence and structural knowledge to extrapolate chemical toxicity information across species. When complete, this innovative research tool will help predict potential chemical susceptibility to wildlife, including plants and animals.. Through the years, scientists have come to understand that the sensitivity of a species to a chemical is determined by a number of factors including chemical exposure, absorption, distribution, metabolism, elimination, and the organisms life-history. Additionally, an important consideration for species susceptibility is the presence or absence of proteins that interact with chemicals. Those that interact can be referred to as protein targets. Researchers take advantage of such protein targets to develop or improve drugs and/or pesticides, ...

The therapy has already produced encouraging results in pre-clinical studies and regulatory toxicology tests in preparation for first-in-human clinical trials. - News - PharmaTimes
Driven by wide recognition that target tissue (or cell) dose is the most appropriate metric of dose for risk and safety assessment, there has been continued growth in the development of computational tools for estimating target tissue dose in vivo for a wide range of materials: volatile and non-volatile materials [42-44] organic chemicals [45, 46], pharmaceuticals [47, 48], and particulates and ultrafine particulates [49-53]. It is surprising, then, given the growing importance of in vitro studies to chemical and particle risk assessment [10] that few efforts [43, 54-56] have been directed at developing computational models of dosimetry for in vitro systems. In part, this oversight may be the result of the incorrect belief that in contrast to in vivo, there are no important kinetic or other processes to consider when addressing the issue of target tissue dose in vitro.

This paper aimed to evaluate the test results of acute toxicity on effluent samples which were exempted from applying of ecotoxicity criteria. Total 316 effluent samples which were free from controlling of ecotoxicity regulation, were tested. Ratio of effluent samples which were exceeded the ecotoxicity criteria (TU > 1) indicated 23.7%. This ratio was a little bit higher than previous study (22.7%) on effluent samples which were controlled under ecotoxicity criteria. These results mean that our ecotoxicity management system is not appropriate and applying of ecotoxicity criteria to all effluent samples (82 industry categories) were needed in order to improve our ecotoxicity system. In addition, the same numeric criteria (TU 1 or 2) for all industry categories were proposed in consideration of these results. Ratio of effluent samples which exceeded the ecotoxicity criteria (TU > 1) with D. magna indicated 23.7%. However V. fischeri showed 14.6%. As a acute toxicity test organism, D. magna seemed ...

While direct toxicity assessment (DTA) is now widely recognised as a useful tool for environmental risk assessment, many existing tests fail to meet end-user needs. This article describes the significant progress made to the MICREDOX® DTA assay, developed at Lincoln Ventures Ltd, brought about by miniaturising this assay to a multi-well plate format combined with limiting current microelectrode transduction. The benefits have been reduced: preparation time, reduced assay time, lower material costs and a higher level of replication achieved. To validate the precision of the miniaturised format, the concentrations required to cause a 50% decrease in signal (EC50) by an archetypal group of toxicants, the chlorophenols, were determined using two terrestrial bacterial strains, Escherichia coli K12 and Klebsiella oxytoca 13183. The assay time was then reduced by stepwise adjustment of the incubation time, from 60 down to 5 min, and the EC50s reported by E. coli to each of the toxicants after 45, 30, ...
The need for alternative approaches to the use of vertebrate animals for hazard assessment of chemicals and pollutants has become of increasing importance. It is now the first consideration when initiating a vertebrate ecotoxicity test, to ensure that unnecessary use of vertebrate organisms is minimized wherever possible. For some regulatory purposes, the use of vertebrate organisms for environmental risk assessments has been banned; in other situations, the number of organisms tested has been dramatically reduced or the severity of the procedure refined. However, there is still a long way to go to achieve a complete replacement of vertebrate organisms to generate environmental hazard data. The development of animal alternatives is based not just on ethical considerations but also on reducing the cost of performing vertebrate ecotoxicity tests and in some cases on providing better information aimed at improving environmental risk assessments. The present Focus article provides an overview of the ...
Neurodegenerative properties of acrylamide were studied in vitro by exposure of differentiated SH-SY5Y human neuroblastoma cells for 72 h. The number of neurites per cell and the total cellular protein content were determined every 24 h throughout the exposure and the subsequent 96-h recovery period. Using kinetic data on the metabolism of acrylamide in rat, a biokinetic model was constructed in which the in vitro toxicity data were integrated. Using this model, we estimated the acute and subchronic toxicity of acrylamide for the rat in vivo. These estimations were compared to experimentally derived lowest observed effect doses (LOEDs) for daily intraperitoneal exposure (1, 10, 30, and 90 days) to acrylamide. The estimated LOEDs differed maximally twofold from the experimental LOEDs, and the nonlinear response to acrylamide exposure over time was simulated correctly. It is concluded that the integration of the present in vitro toxicity data with kinetic data gives adequate estimates of acute and ...
According to „Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Part B: Hazard assessment derivation of DNELs is not necessary if no adverse effects have been observed in studies at the highest recommended concentrations/doses tested. In all available acute toxicity tests Acetoguanamine is reported to cause no adverse effects at the highest recommended dose. Therefore no acute DNELs could be derived. No data from repeated dose toxicity studies, reproductive studies (including developmental toxicity) and carcinogenity studies are available for Acetoguanamine. These studies are necessary to evaluate possible long term effects and derive long term DNELs on the basis of a reliable dose descriptor N(L)OAEL, benchmark dose etc. Because of this reason the registrant will derive long term DNELs for Acetoguanamine in case that adverse effects should appear in the proposed repeated dose studies. ...

The Rio Grande River is the natural boundary between U.S. and Mexico from El Paso, TX to Brownsville, TX. and is one of the major water resources of the area. Agriculture, farming, maquiladora industry, domestic activities, as well as differences in disposal regulations and enforcement increase the contamination potential of water supplies along the border region. Therefore, continuous and accurate assessment of the quality of water supplies is of paramount importance. The objectives of this study were to monitor water quality of the Rio Grande and to determine if any correlations exist between fecal coliforms, E. coli, chemical toxicity as determined by Botsfords assay, H. pylori presence, and environmental parameters. Seven sites along a 112-Km segment of the Rio Grande from Sunland Park, NM to Fort Hancock, TX were sampled on a monthly basis between January 2000 and December 2002. The results showed great variability in the number of fecal coliforms, and E. coli on a month-to-month basis. Fecal

A reliable oral Combined Repeated Dose Toxicity Study with the Reproduction/Developmental Toxicity Screening Test withN-(2-(4-amino-N-ethyl-m-toluidino)ethyl)methanesulphonamide sesquisulphate (CAS 25646-71-3) is available and was performed according to OECD 422 (van Otterdijk, 2018) and in compliance with GLP. Groups of 10 male and 10 female Wistar rats were exposed to the test substance at dose levels of 5, 15 and 50 mg/kg bw/day by oral gavage once daily for 7 days/week. Males were treated for 2 weeks prior to mating, during mating, and up to termination (for 29 days). Females that delivered offspring were treated for 2 weeks prior to mating, during mating, during gestation, and at least 13-15 days of lactation (for 50-56 days). One female, which failed to deliver, was treated for 41 days. Control animals (10 per sex and dose) received the concurrent vehicle, water, only. Dose levels in this study were based on the results of a dose range finding study. In this range finding study, rats ...
Aquatic toxicity tests were originally designed for individual compounds that are soluble and stable in water. For sparingly soluble substances that are not toxic at the solubility limit, the issue is whether tests should be performed with insoluble test substance present. Based on a literature evaluation of the physiology of uptake, it was concluded that only the dissolved fraction is available for uptake and that the insoluble test substance may introduce artifacts that aggravate data interpretation. Therefore, toxicity tests should be conducted only up to the solubility limit. Testing of volatile, unstable, or adsorptive substances is complicated by the ability to keep exposure concentrations relatively constant. For these, appropriate test protocols including adequate design of the dosing systems must be employed. For test medium preparation, physical methods and, where necessary, use of low concentrations of certain solvents are recommended to support handling and speed of dissolution. ...
Plasma samples (5animals/sex/group) were collected from 100, 200 and 2000 ppm diphenyl sulphone dosed treatment groups, including control groups, after 1 and 12 weeks of treatment (this study was part of the 90 -day toxicity study in rats; ICI, 1981). These samples were then stored at -20° C whilst a reverse phase HPLC method was developed and validated . Pooled samples were then analysed for test article using this analytical procedure. The plasma diphenyl sulphone levels of treated animals showed a positive but non-linear correlation with dose. Circulating levels of diphenyl sulphone were comparable at the week 1 and 12 investigations for the 100 and 200 ppm dosed group. However, during week 12 group 2000 ppm dosed males showed a fall in plasma level when compared to week 1, whilst the plasma diphenyl sulphone level of 2000 ppm dosed females rose against the week 1 value. Consequently, on this occasion the plasma concentration shown by females was some four times higher than that of the ...
Preclinical toxicity studies have demonstrated that exposure of laboratory animals to liver enzyme inducers during preclinical safety assessment results in a signature of toxicological changes characterized by an increase in liver weight, hepatocellular hypertrophy, cell proliferation, and, frequently in long-term (life-time) studies, hepatocarcinogenesis.

According to the results of toxicokinetic assessment, the inhalation route is not considered further as exposure scenarios for test article do not indicate inhalative exposure to be the likely route of exposure to workers in production. However, an inhalative DNEL was derived based on the NOAEC (700 mg/m³), derived from a subacute read-across study on methyl salicylate, in which no toxic signs and no macroscopic or microscopic effects were seen following exposure to a saturated atmosphere within 28 days (7 hours exposure on 5 days/week). This NOAEC was adjusted to 1207 mg/m³taking into account molecular weight differences from ethyl salicylate to homosalate. The absorption rate from dermal route is assumed to be less than 10% and the absorption rate of oral route is considered to be 100%. Therefore, the oral NOAEL of 50 mg/kg bw/d for general toxicity of methyl salicylate derived in a 2-year carcinogenicity study is converted to an equimolar value of 86 mg/kg bw/d of homosalate and route to ...
The Tox21 partner agencies work together to develop, validate, and translate innovative in vitro HTS methods to characterize the impact of chemicals on key steps in toxicity pathways.. Data collected in the Tox21 initiative has been used to prioritize uncharacterized compounds for regulatory testing using both traditional and novel test methods. To more broadly address challenges in the field of toxicology, in 2018 Tox21 released a new strategic and operational plan (Thomas et al. 2018) that expands the focus of its research activities. New focus areas include expanding its portfolio of alternative test systems, addressing technical limitations of in vitro test systems, curating legacy in vivo toxicity testing data, establishing scientific confidence in in vitro test systems, and refining alternative methods for characterizing pharmacokinetics and in vitro assay disposition. The eventual goal of Tox21 is to use HTS methods to generate data that will allow risk assessors to more accurately ...

Regulatory Toxicology and Pharmacology. 2014;68:275-296. Thousands of man-made chemicals in use today may enter the food chain. Some of these may result in human exposure, while no toxicological data may be available. The present manuscript illustrates a decision tree for risk assessors and managers to establish fast and reliable safety levels of concern associated with dietary exposures.. Thousands of man-made chemicals are in use today. Many of these compounds may enter the food chain and result in human exposure. Since toxicological information is limited or lacking for the vast majority of these chemicals, the assessment of their health significance is therefore difficult, but envisaged.. A decision tree has been developed taking into account practical application of in silico methods. Basic concepts of classical risk assessment have been integrated: 1) exposure assessment 2) hazard identification 3) hazard characterization and 4) risk characterization.. The present work indicates that if ...
This case study summarizes events relating to the death of a man with seizure disorder who, after evaluation by the county coroner, was evaluated for pesticide exposure via toxicological assessment.
The evaluation of endocrine active substances is currently under discussion. EU legislation demands extensive consequences for endocrine disruptors: biocides and pesticides containing endocrine disruptive substances may not be placed on the market. Endocrine active substances may be placed on the candidate list for authorisation on a case-by-case basis in the context of REACH. Currently, no standardised definition or evaluation criteria for endocrine disruptors exist in the EU. The previous goal to elaborate such criteria untill the end of 2013 has been postponed till October 2014. Endocrine disruptors and regulatory consequences are the topic of the next Advanced Course in Toxicology of the Working Group Regulatory Toxicology of the German Society of Toxicology (DGPT). This course takes place on 31 March 2014 as satellite activity of the annual conference of the DGPT in Hannover. FoBiG is presenting results of an actual project.

Animal models: The consensus is that regulatory toxicology studies should be performed in rodents, whereas other preclinical animal studies may be performed in other animal models. A summary of the relevance of different models (mdx mouse, grmd dog, non-human primate and pig) was provided.. Proof of concept/functionality data/evaluation of oncogenicity: Although proof of concept has to be based on the detection of a functional improvement in the animal model, this needs to be evaluated in the context of the drug in question. In some cases gene expression may be adequate for proof of concept, but functional improvement will have to be seen in a subsequent step. Questions over the percentage of dystrophin expression required, the lack of criteria for the evaluation of efficacy, and how to define the length of follow-up required to prove absence of oncogenicity were also discussed. Route of administration (intramuscular, intravenous, loco-regional) - choice / immune reactions: Overall, the choice ...
The most important benefit of this project is the experimental evaluation of all essential steps in the development and testing of adverse outcome pathways (AOP) for a diverse set of reproductive and non-reproductive toxicants. In contrast to human testing and the toxicity pathway concept, testing of the ecological counterpart is much further behind. However, in vitro testing using rainbow trout cells has a long history and coupled with the superior mechanistic understanding of physiological processes controlling dosimetry, provides an excellent model system for studying implementation of the AOP process. Thus, our results will be of benefit to future studies with other ecologically important models by providing guidance on important questions such as: When considering the pituitary- gonadliver (PGL) axis, to what extent can immortalized cell lines be used and must you control for gender and maturational stage specificity? Are multi- tissue differences in toxicant sensitivity significant enough ...

First, it is important to understand that EC50 (and IC50) values are not constants. There are numerous variables that impact these, and other, assay metrics. Consequently, these values can vary greatly between different assay types and between different related receptors. Regarding this last point: Neither ERα and ERβ, or TRα and TRβ, are simple iso-forms of each other; rather, they are all distinct receptors encoded by separate genes. As an example, the two ER proteins share only 45% sequence identity. If one includes conserved substitutions between the two amino acid sequences, the two receptors still display only 60% sequence homology. While the two ERs have evolved to bind the physiological activator 17β-estradiol, it would be quite surprising if these two different nuclear receptors had the same activation profiles within the cellular context. It is also worth noting that the two ERs display strikingly disparate ligand preferences and activation/inhibition profiles for many other ...

Black phosphorus (BP) belongs to a group of 2D nanomaterials and nowadays attracts constantly increasing attention. Parallel to the growing utilization of BP nanomaterial increase also the requirements for the thorough comprehension of its potential impact on human and animal health. The aim of this study was to compare and discuss five assays commonly used for the cytotoxicity assessments of nanomaterials with a special focus on BP nanoparticles. A comprehensive survey of factors and pitfalls is provided that should be accounted for when assessing their toxicity and pointed to their inconsistency. BP might introduce various levels of interference during toxicity assessments depending on its concentration applied. More importantly, the BP toxicity evaluation was found to be influenced by the nature of assay chosen. These are based on different principles and do not have to assess all the cellular events equally. A commercial assay based on the measurement of protease activity was identified to ...
TSCA/HPV Chemical Testing:. On October 21, 2011, utilizing its authority under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), 15 U.S.C. §2601 et seq., EPA published two Federal Register notices announcing testing rules for certain high production volume (HPV) chemicals as well as significant new use rules (SNURs) for other HPV chemicals. HPV chemicals are those with a production/import volume equal to or greater than 1 million pounds (lbs) per year. The first notice promulgates a final testing rule for 15 HPV chemicals. The second notice adopts an innovative approach to regulating HPV chemicals, proposing a testing rule for 23 HPV chemicals and a SNUR for 22 others, along with an alternative proposal to regulate any of the 23 chemicals via a SNUR should public comments indicate a testing rule is unecessary. Additional details about the rules and the affected chemicals are provided below.. Final Test Rule. The first notice promulgates a final rule under section 4(a)(1)(B) that requires manufacturers, ...
