Genetic Toxicology (GTTC) Committee

 

Genetic Toxicology (GTTC) Committee

Mission Statement

The mission of this technical committee is to improve the scientific basis of the interpretation of results from genetic toxicology tests for purposes of more accurate hazard identification and assessment of human risk; to develop follow-up strategies for determining the relevance of test results to human health; to provide a framework for integration of testing results into a risk-based assessment of the effects of chemical exposures on human health; to promote the integration and use of new techniques and scientific knowledge in the evaluation of genetic toxicology; and to monitor and promote the development of innovative test and testing strategies.

A Comparison of Transgenic Rodent Mutation and In Vivo Comet Assay Responses for 91 Chemicals

Whilst the TGR and comet assays are available for measuring genotoxic effects in multiple rodent tissues, there has been no systematic comparison of their performance in detecting genotoxicity per se. A working group of the Genetic Toxicology Technical Committee (GTTC), part of the Health and Environmental Sciences Institute (HESI), was therefore established to contribute to resolving this deficiency.

Analysis of Historical Negative Control Group Data from the In Vitro Micronucleus Assay Using Human Lymphocytes

The HESI Genetic Toxicology Technical Committee (GTTC) Data Interpretation Workgroup initiated a project to collect and collate sets of data from established and experienced laboratories into a standardized database.

Identifying Germ Cell Mutagens Using OECD Test Guideline 488 (Transgenic Rodent Somatic and Germ Cell Gene Mutation Assays) and Integration with Somatic Cell Testing

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development Test Guideline 488 (TG 488) provides recommendations for assessing germ cell and somatic cell mutagenicity using transgenic rodent (TGR) models. However, important data gaps exist for selecting an optimal approach for simultaneously evaluating mutagenicity in both cell types.

Simulation of Mouse and Rat Spermatogenesis to Inform Genotoxicity Testing Using OECD Test Guideline 488

The Germ Cell workgroup of the Genetic Toxicology Technical Committee of the Health and Environmental Sciences Institute modelled mouse and rat spermatogenesis to better define the exposure history of the cell population collected from seminiferous tubules.

Genotoxicity Assessment of Nanomaterials: Recommendations on Best Practices, Assays, and Methods

Nanomaterials (NMs) present unique challenges in safety evaluation. An international working group, the Genetic Toxicology Technical Committee of the Health and Environmental Sciences Institute, has addressed issues related to the genotoxicity assessment of NMs.
