A new article by scientists at Unilever, a corporate member of the HTPC, describes several areas of safety science in which they are using a pathway-based approach to replace traditional animal tests with a combination of human cell-based in vitro assays and computational models.  The article, “Toxicity testing – non-animal approaches and safety science” (by Fiona Reynolds, Carl Westmoreland and Julia Fentem) is included in the current issue of The Biochemist: “Replacement in Research” (Vol. 36(3), June 2014).
