IIVS at Upcoming Meetings
IIVS will again be exhibiting and attending lectures during the 2014 Personal Care Products Council Science Expo. Stop by our booth to talk to us about your current testing programs and learn about how we can help you add skin sensitization and eye sting into your tox testing portfolio.
IIVS scientists Dr. Holger Behrsing and Hans Raabe will be attending the CORESTA meeting in Quebec, Canada October 12-16. CORESTA’s mission is to promote international cooperation and gather together top level scientists and partners involved in all tobacco topics. IIVS is excited to bring our expertise in in vitro toxicology to this audience. We will be presenting two posters titled “Toxic Insult to Rat Precision Cut Lung Slices Increases Tissue Cytokine Levels and Activation of Macrophages, and Causes Acute Damage, While Prolonged Insult May Lead to Increased Deposition of Collagen - a Marker of Fibrosis.” - Holger P. Behrsing, and “Evaluation of the EpiOral™ Reconstructed Human Oral Buccal Tissue Model as a Testing Platform for Determining the Oral Irritation Potential of Tobacco Products” - Hans. A Raabe. Please contact us if you are also attending the meeting and would like to set up a time to speak with us about your in vitro toxicology program.
IIVS presented a number of posters at the 9th World Congress in Prague at the end of August. Please see below for the topics we presented on with links to the pdfs of our posters. Our study directors are available to speak with you if you have any additional questions about these test methods or how they can fit into your testing program.
