Concepts of toxicology and risk assessment
One of the major drivers of the SEURAT-1 program relates to the safety evaluation of chemicals, in casu cosmetic ingredients. Chemical risk assessment, in turn, relies to a considerable extent on the science of toxicology. Knowledge of both disciplines is a prerequisite for appropriate understanding and practical application of the SEURAT-1 outcome. This 1-day course therefore intends to make non-toxicologists familiar with the field of toxicology and risk assessment. Focus will be put on basic toxicology as well as on 4 topics specifically tailored for the SEURAT-1 program, including (i) the safety evaluation of cosmetic ingredients, (ii) mechanisms and types of liver toxicity, (iii) biomarkers of (liver) toxicity, and (iv) in vivo extrapolation of in vitro toxicity data.
