The ICCVAM Biennial Progress Report 2018-2019 is now available at https://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/go/2019iccvamreport.
The ICCVAM Authorization Act of 2000 directed ICCVAM to prepare a progress report on its first anniversary and every other year thereafter. The latest ICCVAM Biennial Progress Report describes ICCVAM and ICCVAM agency activities from January 2018 through December 2019. Key ICCVAM, ICCVAM agency, and NICEATM accomplishments summarized in the report include:
- Publication of A Strategic Roadmap for Establishing New Approaches to Evaluate the Safety of Chemicals and Medical Products in the United States.
- Development of the Collaborative Acute Toxicity Modeling Suite, in silico models of acute oral systemic toxicity that predict five specific endpoints needed by regulatory agencies.
- Expansion of the Integrated Chemical Environment (https://ice.ntp.niehs.nih.gov/).
- Development of plans to replace, reduce, or refine animal use for testing by the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
This edition of the Biennial Report has been reorganized to make it easier for users to find content of interest. Menu items allow users to view articles by agency or find articles relevant to topics such as in vitro to in vivo extrapolation, cardiotoxicity, or mixtures toxicity. Reference pages list publications of interest as well as providing glossary terms and acronyms relevant to ICCVAM agencies and activities.
