International Workshop: In search of acceptable alternatives to the murine HIST: What is possible and practical?

London, UK


Scientists from around the world from both the public and private sectors will come together to discuss possible alternatives to the murine histamine sensitization test (HIST) for the testing of pertussis containing vaccines.  The aim is to find a suitable replacement for the in vivo test in accordance with the 3Rs principles – replacement, refinement and reduction of animals in research.  The EDQM has organised an international collaborative study to investigate whether a cell-based assay could be a suitable alternative. The results from this study as well as criteria for method validation, regulatory acceptance and progress and achievements in other animal-free analytical methods will be discussed during the workshop.
