DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW IN VITRO GENETIC TOXICOLOGY MODEL USING RECONSTRUCTED HUMAN SKIN.
Choosing the Approach: • Procter & Gamble, a major cosmetics company, had excellent genetox personnel and expertise….and the idea to use a reconstructed skin model as a target tissue. • IIVS had extensive experience in using 3D skin models and in developing regulatory compliant in vitro assay systems. • IIVS is a non-profit company with a remit to help build the field of in vitro toxicology. • Result – a promising collaboration. Progress to Date: • Traditional monolayer MN methodology transferred to a reconstructed skin model • Known positive and negative genotoxins tested • Negative and positive control statistics developed • Intra- and inter-laboratory reproducibility evaluated • Coded materials tested in multiple laboratories (in progress) • Applicability domain assessed (in progress)
