Subsequent to the 46th Annual Meeting of the European Teratology Society the BfR invites the experts to discuss the classification of findings in Version 2 terminology (published by the official journals of the European, American and Japanese Teratology Societies) to improve the classification of findings and laboratory investigations.
The main goal of the 9th Berlin Workshop on DevTox Terminology is to evaluate external, visceral, skeletal and materno-fetal anomalies which can be classified either a malformation, a variation or a grey-zone anomaly according to their severity, size, persistance and grading.
The topics are grouped in three different main panels:
- The final update of the DevTox database
- A consideration of specific aspects in regulatory risk assessment
- The discussion of alternative strategies in testing developmental effects
During the 1st day of the Symposium (September 13, 2018) different aspects of developmental anomalies in laboratory animals compared to the updated devtox website will be discussed. Risk and hazard assessment in developmental toxicology will be presented and discussed in the second session with invited and interested experts.
During the 2nd day (September 14, 2018) International experts will present their views on alternative species in testing of developmental effects and methodology for the future.
The workshop addresses risk assessors, risk managers and stakeholders in order to support the progress towards a harmonised human health risk assessment of plant protection products, biocidal products and other chemicals.
The conference language will be English. More information will be presented on the DevTox Website. A Report of the Workshop will be published in a peer reviewed journal.
