The fourth of six annual reports from the SEURAT-1 Research Initiative has been released. SEURAT-1 aims to develop a long-term research strategy for pathway-based human safety assessments in the field of repeated dose toxicity testing, ultimately leading to highly effective animal-free ‘Innovative Toxicity Testing’ (ITT). The report outlines the context of SEURAT-1, elaborates on its research strategy, and provides details on the current progress of five core integrated projects concerning alternative toxicological test methods, supported by a ‘data handling and servicing’ project and a ‘coordination and support’ project.
