A Collaborative Initiative to Establish Genomic Biomarkers for Assessing Tumorigenic Potential to Reduce Reliance on Conventional Rodent Carcinogenicity Studies

This call-to-action paper published in Toxicological Sciences describes a multi-sector collaboration seeking to accelerate the evaluation of biomarker tools in carcinogenicity studies which will facilitate the transition from current heavy reliance on conventional 2-year rodent ...

A comparison of the lowest effective concentration in culture media for detection of chromosomal damage in vitro and in blood or plasma for detection of micronuclei in vivo

It is often assumed that genotoxic substances will be detected more easily by using in vitro rather than in vivo genotoxicity tests since higher concentrations, more cytotoxicity and static exposures can be achieved. However, there is a paucity of data demonstrating whether genotoxic substances are detected at lower ...

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 ...

A Critical Review of Bioaccumulation and Biotransformation of Organic Chemicals in Birds

A literature review of bioaccumulation and biotransformation of organic chemicals in birds was undertaken, aiming to support scoping and prioritization of future research. The objectives were to characterize available bioaccumulation/ biotransformation data, identify knowledge gaps, determine how extant data can be ...
