SenzaGen to present at LIVe 2018 in Nice, July 5th-6th

On July 5th-6th, SenzaGen will be an attending sponsor at LIVe 2018 (Lung In Vitro event for innovative & predictive models) in Nice, France. The meeting intends to be a unique exchange platform for scientists interested in in vitro respiratory researches, stakeholders from academia, pharma, biotech, chemical, tobacco, consumer goods, medical devices industries, CROs and regulatory agencies.

LIVe 2018 focuses on predictive in vitro lung models designed for basic research, efficacy, sensitization and toxicity testing. It aims to present the state-of-art of in vitro lung models, and to map out the route for its future development and use.

Henrik Johansson, PhD, Senior scientist at SenzaGen, will be giving a key note presentation on the abstract “How do we incorporate recent developments in Big Data analysis and Machine Learning technologies in the field of Toxicology?” on July 6th, opening the 6th event session, “Think Different”. This will be followed by a panel discussion, including Henrik Johansson, regarding “Next Horizon for in vitro lung modeling”.

SenzaGen will also be presenting a poster with the title “GARDair – A novel assay for assessment of chemical respiratory sensitizers based on a genomic platform”. The poster summarizes SenzaGen’s findings so far regarding Horizon 2020.

If you will be attending LIVe 2018 as well, please come visit SenzaGen’s booth. Hope to see you there!

21st Century Sensitisation testing: Can one test be stand alone? Regulatory challenges and GARD applications update

Presented by: Henrik Appelgren, Chief Scientific Officer and regulatory expert at SenzaGen

Allergy is a growing health problem in humans. The data requirements for the assessment of sensitisation in chemical legislations have been based on animal assays, which until now have served as the golden standard. However, in vitro assays have been developed which need to be combined in order to address all key events for sensitisation to fulfil the demands in e. g., Reach. However, The Genomic Allergen Rapid Detection Skin (GARDskin) assay addresses all the key regulatory questions regarding sensitisation, including potency – How? This session we will give an update on the validation status and the different applications of GARD.

ID 668 | Session 2 | Board no P-04-02-07 | Monday, Sept 11 from 15:00
Transferability of the GARDskin assay to two independent laboratories.

ID 438 | Session 4 | Board number P-09-02-31 | Tuesday, Sept 12 from 15:00
