Toxicology in Vitro paper awarded as Best Paper of 2018 by the Medical Device and Combination Product Specialty Section of SOT

During the 58th Annual Meeting of the US Society of Toxicology in Baltimore (US SOT 2019 meeting), the Medical Device and Combination Product Specialty Section of SOT awarded a Toxicology in Vitro paper by Wim H. De Jong et al. as Best Paper of 2018.

The paper was published in a Special Issue of Toxicology in VitroReconstructed human epidermis (RhE) model for evaluation of medical devices irritant capacity. The results presented in this special issue indicate that reconstructed human epidermis (RhE) tissue models can detect the presence of strong skin irritants at low levels in dilute medical device polymer extracts. Therefore, these models may be suitable replacements for the rabbit intra-cutaneous irritation test to support the biological evaluation of medical devices.
