Intermediate Toxicology for Non-Toxicologists
This is a great follow-on course to the highly popular ‘Toxicology for non-Toxicologists’ training course.
This live training webinar picks up from the introduction to toxicology training course in that it looks in more detail at adverse and non adverse effects, testing strategies (alternatives and in vivo), including the purpose of controls and satellite groups, vehicles, group sizes, selection of doses and choice of exposure routes.
It will also look at how simple physicochemical properties can be used in the determination of likely exposure routes. The weight of evidence concept, adaptations and data waivers will also be covered.
Furthermore, this course will also look at the basic concepts of statistical significance, biological and toxicological significance. Sources of data and its reliability (Klimisch ratings) and, whether or not it should be used will also be covered. Examples will be provided throughout the session to illustrate key points.
It is a great training course for you to deepen your knowledge of toxicology.
It is designed in such a way that the information will be useful for a wide variety of industries/regulations e.g. REACH Regulation, Biocides (BPR), Cosmetics, etc. It will also be useful for those of you involved with writing safety data sheets (SDS) and classification and labelling (CLP/GHS).
By attending this training course you will gain an understanding of,
The use of data waivers, adaptation and weight of evidence in regulatory toxicology.
Data sources and assessment of reliability – i.e. should I use this data?
The differences between adverse and non adverse effects.
How to use simple physicochemical properties for the assessment of potential exposure routes.
The underlying principles regarding the assessment of toxicity – including alternatives and in vivo approaches.
The importance of control groups, satellite groups, choice of appropriate vehicles, group sizes, dose selection and appropriate exposure routes.
What is meant by statistical significance, biological and toxicological significance.
