2013 European Society of Toxicologic Pathology (ESTP) Congress—September 10–13, 2013

Theme: Current Standard for CNS Evaluation in Rodent Toxicity Studies
Location: Ghent, Belgium

Based on concerns of regulatory scientists and growing recognition that the rodent brain was being insufficiently evaluated, a new sampling procedure for evaluation of the rodent central nervous system (CNS) has been adopted by the National Toxicology Program (NTP) and Contract Research Organizations (CROs). The new sampling procedure includes seven transverse sections of brain compared to the traditional threesection approach and is designed to include major brain structures with functional significance. The International Academy of Toxicologic Pathology (IATP) will present a half-day educational session on this topic on the afternoon of September 11, 2013, from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm at the ESTP Congress in Ghent.
