Ancillary Meetings

Alternatives for Acute Toxicity Testing: Updates and Planned Activities

Stakeholders will present updates on ongoing efforts toward the development, evaluation, and implementation of new approach methodologies for acute toxicity testing. Scientists from government, industry, and nongovernmental organizations will provide brief presentations in the areas of acute oral and inhalation toxicity, skin and eye irritation, and skin sensitization followed by an opportunity for open discussion.
