CELLINKs表皮™ skin model has been approved by the OECD as a st和-alone in-vitro test method for phototoxicity
im体育app生命科学, CELLINK的子公司, today announced the acceptance of the 表皮™ 光毒性 Test as part of 测试准则没有. 498 In vitro 光毒性: Reconstructed Human Epidermis 光毒性 Test Method by the Organization of Economic Cooperation 和 Development (OECD). This effort is very much in line with the Group’s goals to reduce 和 eventually replace animal testing by developing technologies 和 methods that are more human-relevant 和 provide a more accurate prediction of human clinical responses. This is the fourth OECD test guideline validation for im体育app’s in vitro tissue models following validations for 皮肤刺激(OECD TG 439), 皮肤腐蚀(OECD TG 431) 和 眼睛刺激(OECD TG 492).
Test Guideline 498 is a st和-alone method for evaluating the phototoxic potential of a test chemical after topical application in reconstructed human epidermis (RhE) in the presence 和 absence of simulated sunlight. 光毒性 potential is evaluated by relative reduction in viability of cells exposed to the test chemical as compared to the absence of simulated sunlight. Chemicals identified as positive in this test have been found to be phototoxic in clinical evaluations following topical application to the skin.
The project included testing of over 60 compounds on im体育app’s 表皮 human epidermal skin tissue model, which is currently the only tissue model accepted under the test guideline. 表皮, 第一部于1993年出品, has been used to test the phototoxic potential of topically applied drugs 和 skincare 产品 since 1997. The phototoxicity protocol was first developed by Dr. Manfred Liebsch of ZEBET 和 refined by Dr. Helena K和arova, who also spearheaded the OECD acceptance effort.
“This is a big advancement over accepted guidelines, 比如3T3试验, which uses a mouse fibroblast cell line 和 is highly over predictive which erroneously disqualifies perfectly viable compounds for 个人护理 产品,” said Alex Armento, CEO of im体育app. “This effort is very much in line with our goals to reduce 和 eventually replace animal testing by developing technologies 和 methods that are more human-relevant 和 provide a more accurate prediction of human clinical responses. This new regulatory acceptance is further proof that in vitro tissue models are a better predictive method.”
im体育app产生表皮, along with an expansive catalogue of additional lab-grown human tissues, for shipment to laboratories 和 researchers around the globe, 和 performs in-house testing services for industry clients, making it the most diverse 和 widely available technology of its kind.
