Recent events provide a compelling impetus for modernizing chemical risk assessment. Several reports from the National Research Council (NRC) form a critical basis for rethinking how risk assessment is done and provide numerous and varied recommendations for advancing the science. Other key drivers include initiatives by the US EPA to increase the efficiency of the risk assessment process and the potential use of data emerging from the ‘omics’ technologies and bioinformatic sciences to improve regulatory decision-making. This workshop will be a dynamic forum for researchers, practitioners, and decision-makers from industry, government, and academia to engage in meaningful discussions and critical evaluations of emerging directions in human health risk assessment.

Additional Meeting Information: The Objective of this intermediate level course is to explore the study and test article related factors that impact clinical pathology parameters and to develop an integrated, organ-based approach for data interpretation.

This one-day workshop will cover all aspects of clinical pathology that pertain to study design and data interpretation in the species commonly used in preclinical toxicology studies (nonhuman primates, dogs and rodents). The course will emphasize the concepts and interrelationships of clinical pathology parameters and highlight species related differences. Case examples will be used to illustrate the application of conceptual points. The forum will be highly interactive with numerous opportunities for questions, comments and anecdotes. Don’t be satisfied with describing the “ups” and “downs”. Don’t wait for the anatomic pathologist to give you the answers. Learn how to integrate clinical pathology data to identify target organ and mechanisms of toxicity.

There are opportunities to receive feedback from your “customers”, i.e., the pharma industry Sponsor (for CRO study directors), management/expectations/concerns (for pharma in-house study directors), and last, but not least: how an FDA reviewer evaluates your report.

We offer a cross-section of faculty from the pharma/biotech and CRO industries, as well as independent consultants with expertise in toxicology, clinical and anatomic pathology, pharmacokinetics, bioanalytics, GLP compliance, data review, report preparation, and other key skills considered essential for the successful Study Director.

This workshop has included participants from all over the world representing the pharma and biotech industries, CROs, and academic research centers. Whether you’re a new or experienced Study Director, or just interested in learning the nuts and bolts of GLP study directing, this workshop offers a one-of-a-kind, learning experience.

The challenge to improve and maintain the health and well-being of the population is a difficult undertaking. The phrase ‘prevention is better than cure’ is often quoted; however, with the UK on the verge of an obesity epidemic, over 100,000 people dying each year from smoking related illnesses, and deaths from illegal drug use far too frequent, clearly we are not sufficiently successful in the area of ‘prevention.’

Public Health: Promoting Health and the Challenges Ahead will explore the way forward to safeguarding a healthier nation and will debate policies that can make a real impact. Professionals from the public health and health promotion sectors can hear from leading experts on the current and emerging challenges and how to overcome them.

Additional Meeting Information: The workshop will be at The Washington Club, 15 Dupont Circle NW, Washington, D.C. 20036-1299

This workshop will provide a brief background on traditional testing strategies used to detect later-life effects following in utero or post-natal stressors. It will also explore the emerging science in this area using two case studies. The first case study is end-point driven and will examine developmental origins of obesity, insulin resistance, and hypertension. The second will explore in utero or post-natal exposure to arsenic and potential indicators that could predict later-life effects. Finally, the workshop will include discussions on implications for using this emerging science for risk assessment or decision-making purposes.

Some questions that will be used to guide the workshop include the following:
  • What is the range of adult disease states that have developmental origins?
  • What are the possible mechanisms for persistent, adult-onset effects associated with developmental exposures?
  • What early life biomarkers are available to predict later life disease?
  • How good are current animal tests in detecting associations between early life exposures and later life effects?
  • Are there shorter-term animal tests or mode-of-action-based in vitro/human biomarker tests that detect early life events and are predictive of later life effects?
  • Is our scientific understanding of these processes sufficient to inform weight-of-evidence-based risk assessments and regulatory practices?

Additional Meeting Information: Genotoxic and Carcinogenic Impurities present significant challenges to the pharmaceutical industry. Genetic toxicity and carcinogenicity tests must have a high level of accuracy and sensitivity to ensure that all possible carcinogens are detected while false positives must be identified to avoid the attrition of safe compounds.

In addition to achieving this accuracy, sensitivity and specificity that is required in the regulatory battery of tests (such as the: Ames test, Chromosome Aberration test, comet assay, micronucleus test, mammalian lymphoma assay etc), toxicologists and safety assessors must also ensure that the assays employed and the data generated is sufficient to comply with the regulatory guidelines specified by several differing regulatory bodies.

Genotoxicity & Carcinogenicity Testing 2010 will address these issues to enable you to efficiently detect genotoxic impurities and in turn the production of safe and profitable drugs.

The appearance of new national and international programs mandating increased toxicological safety testing of products and ingredients is a major driving force for the development of a “new toxicology.” From the REACH program in Europe to the reauthorization of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) in the U.S., new legislation is making faster, and more reliable testing methods virtually essential. Non-animal, human focused, in vitro approaches are foreseen as the only realistic way to provide the required information. The National Academy of Sciences’ report: Toxicity Testing in the 21st Century: A Vision and Strategy, clearly outlines why scientists need to understand the availability and uses of in vitro test methods. Join us for the 2010 In Vitro Alternatives Forum to learn about upcoming toxicity testing challenges and the current activities designed to meet them. In addition to presentations on a number of in vitro and in silico approaches, special emphasis will be placed on integrated testing strategies to identify skin sensitizers—an extremely important area of toxicity testing covered by the European Union’s 7th Amendment to the Cosmetics Directive.

Additional Meeting Information: The microbiome, the sum of microorganisms that colonize the bodies the bodies of all higher organisms, is extremely complex and dynamic. Although most can cause acute infections and disease, under normal circumstances most coexist in symbiotic relationships with the host and perform essential functions including digestion, production of essential vitamins and nutrients, and metabolism of xenobiotics. Why should environmental health scientists, risk assessors, or regulators be concerned? First, interactions between the host and the microbiome determine health. Second, the composition and function of the microbiome are influenced by the environment. Third, the microbiome alters the response of the organism to the environment. Last, imbalances in the microbiome are associated with increased risk of enviromentally-related disease, including asthma, cancer, autism, obesity, and autoimmune diseases. The purpose of this workshop is to review current state of the science on the microbiome, provide an overview of emerging technologies to study the microbiome, explore the relationship between environmental exposures, the microbiome and environmental health, and explore the potential impact on disease prevention, risk assessment and management, regulation and policy.

Additional Meeting Information: The first Symposium on Ethics of Environmental Health will take place in Prague, Czech Republic, August 24–27. It will be a satellite meeting of the 14th International Congress of Radiation Research in Warsaw, August 28 - September 1. The ethical concepts underlying our system of radiation protection have received increasing attention over the last few years, but there seems to be little cross-fertilization with the discussion of related ideas in other areas of environmental health. Therefore this symposium will address a whole range of topics including toxicology, risk research, and biomonitoring. It is hoped that colleagues from radiation research will find the programme as interesting as those from other areas of environmental health as well as those from different fields of applied ethics. The symposium is organized on behalf of the Society of Radiation Research and Emergency Planning in the Czech Medical Association. The organizing committee comprises internationally renowned experts on ethics and environmental health. Key note speakers will be Deborah Oughton (Norway),Steven Gilbert (USA), Sven Ove Hansson (Sweden), Susanne Bauer (Germany)and Colin Soskolne (Canada).

Meeting Web Site: www.nyas.org/AnimalModels
Additional Meeting Information: This 2-day scientific conference will provide a neutral forum to critically examine the traditional role of pre-clinical animal models in drug discovery, how these models most effectively contribute to translational medicine and drug discovery, changes needed to increase the predictive power of various models for drug efficacy in humans, and ways in which to further refine, reduce, and replace animal models in biomedical research.

By convening multi-disciplinary clinical and basic science investigators we hope to identify common hurdles and pathways forward to improving model systems for the evaluation of therapeutic efficacy and toxicity in the areas of metabolic and cardiovascular disease, inflammation, and pain, among others. Sessions on the recent explosion of broadly applicable new technologies in bioimaging, biosimulation, bioinformatics, generating genetically modified animals and phenotype screening along with emerging non-rodent models, the use of embryonic stem cells, patient-specific induced pluripotent stem cells, and humanized animal models will ensure that recent advances in basic science knowledge gained from improved pre-clinical animal models with good predictive validity readily become available to the pharmaceutical industry and clinical researchers so as to aid the discovery and development of new disease treatments as quickly as possible.

Additional Meeting Information: For thousands of years, humanity has progressed on the back of technology innovation. Yet for all our inventiveness, we stand at a crisis point in human history. In today’s increasingly complex and interconnected world, the path between innovation and solution is being confounded by fear of new health risks and uncertainty over potential outcomes. Yet this is happening at a time when we are more dependent than ever on innovation-driven solutions to global health challenges. If science and technology are to continue to drive social development and economic growth, we need to re-examine and re-think the relationship between risk, uncertainty and innovation. This symposium will bring together leading thinkers from industry, government, academia, the media and other non-governmental sectors to explore new ideas on integrative approaches to health risks, uncertainty and innovation, as we look to develop sustainable solutions to global challenges in an increasingly fragile world.

Additional Meeting Information: Protection of human safety is a primary objective of toxicology research and risk management. It is critical that the strategy and tools used to accomplish this are maximally capable to evaluate human risk. The toxicity testing strategy outlined in the 2007 U.S. National Academy of Sciences report Toxicity Testing in the 21st Century: A Vision and a Strategy, involves four main components: chemical characterization, toxicity pathways and targeted testing, dose response and extrapolation modeling, and human exposure data. During this workshop we will discuss the magnitude of the challenge in achieving this vision as it may apply to pharmaceutical discovery and development. We will also review what has been achieved and the relevance of these achievements to safety assessment of new chemical entities intended for pharmaceutical use. Finally, we will discuss current applications of the strategy from the perspective of those in various sectors. A summary discussion will provide critical analysis that may serve as a roadmap for tailoring this highly visible strategy to a pharmaceutical environment.

Additional Meeting Information: For years there has been ongoing research into new approaches enabling alternative methods to replace animal studies. In the area of reproductive toxicity testing, a number of research programmes have provided important test strategies with regard to in vitro testing methods. The data might be insufficient to reach a complete replacement of in vivo studies regarding developmental and reproductive toxicity (DART) by in vitro approaches currently. However, it could be expected that the tests and combined test batteries developed and studied may contribute to alleviating the need for some of the animal studies required for reproductive testing (embryo-foetal toxicity) under ICH S5A guidelines. In order to achieve this goal, discussions between regulators, industry and the academic scientists involved are needed. An important aspect is the long time it takes to implement changes from this work on alternatives into regulatory measures.

Additional Meeting Information: The meeting will be held in Lansdowne, Virginia.

Drug toxicologists today are caught between a rock and a hard place. The economic climate requires us to achieve more with less—more predictive safety, with less time, staff and resources. This Workshop will address this issue directly through dialog and debate in a highly interactive setting. Expert lectures will be followed by break-outs, where speakers and attendees will head for the blackboard to solve the “more with less” challenge. Prototype study designs will be used to start discussion and solicit new approaches. Traditional and new ideas will be tested against the potential to reduce animal use, “false economy” and real workplace constraints. The discussion and outcomes of the Workshop will be recorded through publication in a white paper; this is a key opportunity to contribute experience to an ongoing initiative as follow-on projects are expected.

Meeting Web Site: nas-sites.org/emergingscience/workshops/genomic-plasticity/
Additional Meeting Information: The human genome is routinely thought of as a static component of the cell, one that is subject to just two fates; to be inherited or to mutate. However, since the completion of the sequencing of the human genome, scientists have been exploring how the genome responds to environmental stressors and chemical exposure. It turns out the genome is much more dynamic than we thought. Genomes have the characteristic of plasticity, which makes it possible to adapt quickly in order to survive changes in environmental conditions.

Changes in the genome can have a big impact on human health. The Standing Committee on Emerging Science for Environmental Health Decisions has been exploring factors that influence human health in its workshop series. An earlier forum on Epigenetics looked at how genes are expressed and silenced in response to environment stressors. Mobile and evolving elements such as telomeres, transposons, and copy number variants are other important factors in understanding the potential effect of our environment on human health.

The Genomic Plasticity forum will look beyond random mutation and discuss the fundamental changes in genomic alterations that can contribute to disease and ageing, as well as new technologies and tools to identify and study genome plasticity events. The forum will initiate/foster the exploration of how environmental stressors may impact the genome, by exploring the intersection of mechanisms leading to genomic changes and mechanisms targeted by environmental stressors.
