||Detection of endpoints and biomarkers of repeated dose toxicity using in vitro systems
||European Commission and Cosmetics Europe
||Assessment of repeated dose toxicity is a standard requirement in human safety evaluation and relies on animal testing as no alternatives are currently accepted for regulatory purposes. An integrated research strategy for the replacement of animal tests needs to comprise the development of biomarkers of long-term toxicity in human target cells. To this aim, the DETECTIVE project will set up a screening pipeline of high content, high throughput as well as classical functional and “-omics” technologies to identify and investigate human biomarkers in cellular models for repeated dose in vitro testing.
