The European Partnership for Alternative Approaches to Animal Testing (EPAA) will be organizing a cross-sector workshop on: Optimized testing strategies for skin sensitisation –Local Lymph Node Assay (LLNA) and beyond.
The meeting will build upon the findings of the 2010 LRI Workshop on the LLNA The intention is to share practical experience amongst industry sectors, mainly on the use of the LLNA but also on testing strategies for skin sensitisation in general.
The expected outcome includes mainly conclusions about the applicability of the LLNA and recommendations for optimized 3Rs strategies for skin sensitisation. Steps for implementation of these recommendations should be identified as well as potential issues related to the applicability of methods or approaches that could next be addressed with regulators.
