The 53rd Congress of the European Societies of Toxicology will be held in Bratislava from 10-13 September 2017. The programme includes 30 symposia and workshops highlighting the novel findings in the field of toxicology and also features four poster sessions and five continuing education courses.
Specifically, for EUROTOX, Cosmetics Europe prepared a session titled New approaches to skin sensitisation safety assessment (Session 18), which will take place on Tuesday, 12 September, from 14h00-16h00.
This session will offer an overview of projects that the Cosmetics Europe Skin Bioavailability and Metabolism (Skin BM) Task Force (TF) and the Skin Tolerance (ST) TF run. Results from these projects exemplify how safety assessment for skin sensitization, as well as identification of possible systemic effects of topically applied chemicals, can follow the 21st century vision for toxicity testing.
The session will comprise the following presentations:
Progress in the validation and regulatory adoption of alternative approaches for skin sensitisation assessment
European Commission, Joint Research Centre, Ispra, Italy
Impact of Cutaneous Bioavailability in Local Skin Toxicity: Preliminary results from Cosmetics Europe Skin Bioavailability and Metabolism Task Force
