Event Description

The Cat-App* project, was initiated and funded by Concawe with the goal to avoid unnecessary laboratory animal use in the human health hazard and risk assessment process related to the production, distribution and use of petroleum products, by applying new approach methodologies as alternatives to animal testing integrated in an informed testing strategy.

Cat-App aims to provide a cost-effective integrative approach to address the regulatory toxicity decision making challenges that (petroleum) UVCB substances present, due to their chemical complexity and multi-constituent nature with largely unknown and variable composition. The concept is to develop a framework to facilitate chemical-biological read-across of toxicological data, a novel direction to inform regulatory decision making on these and other complex substances.

An overview of the project, the major results, the application of these data to support the Concawe REACH product dossiers and a way forward for the short to long term future will be presented in this meeting.
