The Workshop Report for the April 2016 workshop, In Vitro Exposure Systems and Dosimetry Assessment Tools for Inhaled Tobacco Products is now available.
The 2.-5 day workshop brought together stakeholders from industry, government and academia to discuss considerations for exposure and dosimetry for non-animal testing. The event was uniquely focused on in vitro testing, the workshop is the only known event of its kind.
Attendees, including toxicologists from industry, the FDA Center for Tobacco Products, the National Center for Toxicological Research and the US Environmental Protection Agency, heard presentations, attended poster sessions and breakout groups to gain a deeper understanding of the issues involving exposure and dosimetry of aerosols to cells and tissues in culture. Topics included the current status of in vitro to in vivo correlations, whole tobacco smoke and E-cigarette aerosol/vapor constituents, in vitro exposure systems, dosimetry approaches, the exposure microenvironment, and promising technologies that may advance science in these areas.
