CSS Webinar: Part 1 - Mechanistic Assessment of Carcinogenicity

Organization: Carcinogenesis SS
Event Date or Start Date: 1/24/2020
End Date: 1/24/2020
Event Type: Specialty Section Events
Country:
State or Region:
Additional Meeting Information: For decades, risk assessors have relied on the rodent cancer bioassays to collect apical endpoints that are used to identify potential human carcinogens. The rat and mouse bioassays are currently required by regulatory authorities for carcinogenicity assessment of agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, and environmental pollutants. However, five decades of cancer research have revealed more informative, human-relevant approaches to assess potential carcinogenic effects. Questions are now being asked about how to modernize cancer risk assessment with mechanistic approaches that reduce testing on animals and provide more human health– protective information to ensure chemical safety. This webinar series will address these questions as cross-sector experts deliver webinar presentations that will provide insight into current challenges and opportunities in designing human-relevant chemical carcinogenicity assessment. The webinar series will focus on two key areas: mechanistic assessment of carcinogenicity and modernization of cancer risk assessment. For each of these webinars, we will address the relevant aspects of emerging technology, strategic and tactical issues, and regulatory guidance relevant to safety and risk assessment. The focus of these webinars will be to demonstrate opportunities to modernize chemical carcinogenicity assessment to provide human health protection while reducing testing on animals. This webinar series could potentially run every other year as guidelines and scientific thinking evolve. This webinar series is based on several ongoing, high-profile research projects focused on modernizing carcinogenicity assessment in place of the rodent cancer bioassays. Additionally, this timely topic is the subject of numerous conference workshops, demonstrating interest from the scientific community across various sectors and regulatory bodies. Structure: The intention is to deliver the content as two successive webinars, with a Q&A panel session at the end of the last webinar. The moderator for each webinar can accumulate key questions and learning points to be shared in and built into a course commentary and/or Q&A.

Event Information: NAMSS Webinar: From Nanomaterials to Advanced Materials: A Health and Safety Perspective

Date and time: Thursday, January 30, 2020 1:00 pm
Eastern Standard Time (New York, GMT-05:00)

Duration: 1 hour

Description:
Advances in nanoscale science have resulted in materials that are more active, more efficient, and more versatile in their commercial applications. A key outgrowth has been the development and deployment of ‘Advanced Materials’. These materials are chemically and biologically more active and more efficient for the specific functions for which they are designed. Advanced materials are combining with the development of new manufacturing technologies, such as additive manufacturing, 3D printing, and engineered/synthetic biology, to give us a vision of the new materials, processes, and products that make up ‘21st Century Manufacturing’. The challenge for the EHS professional is to remain current on the issues of potential health hazards, the degree to which these materials are being introduced into new manufacturing technologies, and the way they are used and incorporated into products. The types of risk assessment and management approaches needed to support safe, responsible, and sustainable commercialization of nano- and advanced-material-enabled products can be challenging, but a lot of progress has been made in the past 10 years. Many of the lessons learned with nanotechnology will have direct re-application opportunities in the rapidly emerging world of advanced materials and the 21st Century manufacturing environment.

Event Information: CTSS Webinar: US FDA Experience in the Regulatory Application of (Q)SAR Modeling

Date and time: Wednesday, February 5, 2020 11:00 am
Eastern Standard Time (New York, GMT-05:00)

Duration: 1 hour

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) actively promotes and supports research into state-of-the-art computational toxicology approaches including (quantitative) structure-activity relationship, also known as(Q)SAR, modeling for regulatory decision-making. Within FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, a significant focus of this research is on the safety assessment of drug impurities under the ICH M7 guideline, where a (Q)SAR prediction can be used as an alternative to empirical testing to assess mutagenic potential. The successful implementation of the ICH M7 guideline has led to the development of best practices for the conduct of (Q)SAR analyses, evaluation of model outputs, and submission of (Q)SAR data to regulators. Building on this success, new opportunities for the regulatory application of (Q)SARs are being explored for other endpoints including carcinogenicity and endocrine disruption, as well as for other components of FDA-regulated products beyond impurities.

This presentation will provide an in-depth look at current regulatory practice and expectations for the use of (Q)SAR models under ICH M7, as well as highlight emerging applications of the methodology to chemical entities and endpoints of regulatory importance to FDA.

Challenges and Opportunities in Assessing Health Risk from Unconventional Oil and Gas Development

Additional Meeting Information:

Donna Voorhees, PhD
Director of Energy Research
Health Effects Institute (HEI)
Boston, MA


Onshore development of oil and natural gas from unconventional resources (unconventional oil and gas development, abbreviated in this presentation as “UOGD”) has expanded rapidly in the United States during the last decade and, along with it, concern about its potential health effects. While UOGD shares many attributes of conventional oil and gas development that has been around since the 1800s, it is occurring in locations and at a scale not always familiar to those living nearby. This presentation will summarize methodologic challenges and opportunities in understanding the potential for health effects, especially through risk-based analyses.

Beginning in 2012, academic scientists and public health authorities published human health risk assessments and risk-based screening assessments that combined information about potential UOGD-related chemical concentrations with relevant toxicity information to predict risk to communities in Colorado, North Dakota, Pennsylvania and the broader Marcellus region, Texas, and Wyoming. Nearly all assessments quantified risk to community members associated with potential exposure to UOGD-related chemicals in air, but several assessed risks involving water. Assessments varied in their complexity, from screening-level comparisons of chemical concentrations, to health-based benchmarks, to more involved assessments measuring potential exposure specific to a population, including control for baseline, or background, conditions. Conclusions differed among the risk assessments and were subject to important sources of uncertainty about exposure and toxicity and the judgments made by investigators to address them. The body of work also was limited in its relevance to operations, regions, and populations beyond those that were the subject of each assessment. Future investigators must grapple with the extensive temporal and spatial variability in potential exposure as a function of numerous factors (e.g., differences in regulations, environmental conditions, and practices among UOGD operators), the uncertainties about potential exposure (e.g., when and where will operations happen, the identity of chemicals being used, the efficacy of noise mitigation), and the lack of toxicity information for some chemicals associated with UOGD operations.

NAMSS Webinar: From Nanomaterials to Advanced Materials: A Health and Safety Perspective

Organization: Nanoscience and Advanced Materials Specialty Section
Event Date or Start Date: 3/4/2020
End Date:
Event Type: Specialty Section Events
Country:
State or Region:
Additional Meeting Information: Advances in nanoscale science have resulted in materials that are more active, more efficient, and more versatile in their commercial applications. A key outgrowth has been the development and deployment of ‘Advanced Materials’. These materials are chemically and biologically more active and more efficient for the specific functions for which they are designed. Advanced materials are combining with the development of new manufacturing technologies, such as additive manufacturing, 3D printing, and engineered/synthetic biology, to give us a vision of the new materials, processes, and products that make up ‘21st Century Manufacturing’. The challenge for the EHS professional is to remain current on the issues of potential health hazards, the degree to which these materials are being introduced into new manufacturing technologies, and the way they are used and incorporated into products. The types of risk assessment and management approaches needed to support safe, responsible, and sustainable commercialization of nano- and advanced-material-enabled products can be challenging, but a lot of progress has been made in the past 10 years. Many of the lessons learned with nanotechnology will have direct re-application opportunities in the rapidly emerging world of advanced materials and the 21st Century manufacturing environment.

A Focus on Non-traditional Approaches in the Fight against Antimicrobial Resistance

Sponsored by Scynexis

CO-CHAIRS FOR 2020: Cara Cassino, Chief Medical Officer, Contrafect and Michael Dawson, Director, Mike Dawson Antimicrobial Research Consultancy

As one of the most impactful pharmaceuticals for maintaining public health, antibiotics have been around since early 20th century and have since shown a need for significant progress in recent years. This is mainly due to its broad and indiscriminate use which has slowly given birth to multi- to extensively-drug resistant bacteria rendering our current last-resort antibiotic arsenal, including colistin, carbapenems, 3rd and 4th generation cephalosporins, useless.

This year’s event aims to showcase a suite of sessions focused on novel drugs and approaches, particularly highlighting non-traditional and traditional therapies that provide an innovative means to spearhead the issue. The conference will also place significant emphasis on the much-needed support for innovative approaches such as sessions tackling the funding and support and the regulation that provides guidance towards the goal of ameliorating the continued rise of anti-microbial resistance AMR.

It is crucial to bring industry leaders together to discuss the strategies in place that reduce AMR, evaluate the role pharmaceutical companies and funding bodies play in reducing AMR, learn about new diagnostics approaches to identify AMR and consider novel candidates and alternatives to anti-microbials. Join us in March 2020, along with leaders from the pharmaceutical industry, academia, regulatory and funding bodies, and public-private partnerships to discuss the way forward.

First integrated international workshop on acetyltransferases, sulfotransferases, and UDP-glucuronosyltransferases

Organization: CLB-Envirome Institute, University of Louisville
Event Date or Start Date: 4/1/2020
End Date: 4/3/2020
Event Type: SOT-Sponsored Events
Country: UNITED STATES
State or Region: KY
Additional Meeting Information: The first integrated international workshop clearly is a novel proposal that builds upon the success of past international workshops that focused on a single xenobiotic metabolizing enzyme system. The opportunity to integrate the enzyme systems with the world’s leading scientists has never been proposed or accomplished to date. A key purpose and knowledge gap to be met by the integrated workshop is understanding the role of the xenobiotic metabolizing enzymes in environmental health as a group rather than individually. This integration theme was a key rationale for selection of many of the keynote speakers. In an era where powerful genomic technologies are accelerating research into the complex gene-environment interactions modulating the biological effects of xenobiotics (drugs, carcinogens etc.), it is critical to include other major families of phase II conjugation enzymes within the context of an integrated workshop. The first integrated international workshop on acetyltransferases, sulfotransferases and UDP-glucuronosyltransferases will open new channels of interaction and collaboration across a broader scientific community, invigorating the field and expanding its global impact. The workshop will provide important consensus information on the proper use of gene and allelic symbols, as well as for conveying recommendations by the HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee, the PharmacoGenomics KnowledgeBase, the Human Genome Variation Society etc. The workshop will promote constructive discussion towards harmonization of pharmacogenetic nomenclature and test result reporting for phase II conjugation enzymes, a need recently recognized by an international workgroup of experts led by scientists of the US Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (Clin. Pharmacol. Ther. 2016, 99:172-85).
