Information Day on „Good Cell Culture Practice: human stem cells and organoids“

03.12 - 03.12.2015 -

Advances in cell culture techniques and the establishment of in vitro test systems in research need to be accompanied by approaches to standardize processes and documentation. The "Bologna Statement on Good Cell Culture Practice" published in 1999 prompted the ECVAM Task Force on Good Cell Culture Practice (GCCP) to produce two seminal guidance documents. Additional refinements were introduced in 2011. With the growing availability of cultured organoids, and the increasing generation and use of pluripotent stem cells and their differentiation progeny, there is a need for revision and updating of the GCCP guidelines with these new technologies. This includes quality assurance of supplied biological materials as well as consideration of ethical and legal aspects. This symposium focuses on GCCP regarding human cells and tissues and the quality assurance of cells obtained by reprogramming.

The 21st Century vision and strategy for assessing toxicity developed with the intent to increase throughput, decrease cost, and optimize chemical data collection for increased utility and relevance to inform chemical safety decision-making. Central to this strategy is the ability to predict human health risks from emerging ‘‘big data” and novel in vitro data collections using in silico models for exposure and hazard assessment. Automated high-throughput screening (HTS) and high-content screening (HCS) of large chemical inventories, together with newer complex culture models utilizing human cells, microtissue systems, and integrative models, are now providing vast amounts of data that can be used to inform regulatory toxicity testing. These methods, together with novel approaches to model exposure and kinetics, creates an opportunity for a paradigm shift toward diversified and high-throughput risk assessment (HTRA) approaches for regulatory decision-making. Overall, the approach results in more rapid, more relevant, and more nimble discovery-screening and prioritization efforts with less reliance on animal testing. The time is right to discuss and debate how TT21C science, approaches, and technologies will be applied in risk assessment and regulatory decision-making. “FutureTox” was a Society of Toxicology Contemporary Concepts in Toxicology (SOT CCT) conference held in 2012 that focused on challenges and opportunities associated with implementing 21st Century toxicity testing technologies and tools into improved, science-informed hazard prediction and risk assessment. It was followed in 2014 by “FutureTox II,” a CCT that focused on the science to advance an outcome paradigm where improvements to predictivity and concordance are based solely on in vitro/in silico approaches. FutureTox III is a CCT focusing on building the high throughput risk assessment paradigm, taking the science of in vitro data and in silico models forward; thus, the conference will explore the central question: What progress is being made to address challenges in implementing the emerging ‘big-data’’ toolbox for regulatory decision-making? The TT21C testing paradigm provides a sustainable solution for tomorrow's challenges in “creating a safer and healthier world by advancing the science of toxicology” (SOT’s mission).

5th Annual MIBio Conference
MIBio 2015: Stability of biopharmaceuticals – From molecular interactions to successful products
The MIBio conference series engages world leading experts from industry and academia in a discussion in how the latest molecular interaction based discoveries can be exploited in biopharmaceutical formulation to produce more effective, patient-friendly and safer therapeutic products.

Over the last decade, formulation has become a critical and integral part of the biopharmaceutical development process. With the increasing number of biopharmaceutical pipeline products as well as the increase in number of off-patent blockbuster biologics the importance of formulation is even greater than ever. It is very important to ensure that the latest scientific discoveries and advancements in analytical methods are integrated in the formulation process as efficiently as possible. Only products that are formulated to achieve an excellent stability profile and convenient administration will succeed in the increasingly competitive market place.

One of the aims of MIBio 2015 is to discuss the latest advances in understanding molecular interactions that can be harnessed to improve formulations of biopharmaceutical products. Such advances will only create value if they are properly utilised in the product development process. Therefore, another aim of MIBio 2015 is to discuss the most efficient ways of integrating the latest scientific and methodological advances in the formulation process and, in turn, optimal ways of integrating formulation development in the overall development process. The best ways of extracting value from such advances via creating new intellectual property will also be discussed. Seven key experts in the field will present during the day on these topics, and, as is traditional in the MIBio series, there will be opportunities for audience participation in the discussion of these important matters.

International Workshop on "Advances in nanoparticulate carriers - Applications in diseases and infections"

19.10 - 21.10.2015 - Duclaux Lecture Theater, Institut Pasteur, 28 rue du Docteur Roux, 75015 Paris (France)

This truly interdisciplinary event aims to gather specialists in the fields of nanotechnology, drug delivery, physico-chemistry and (micro)biology, stimulating new ideas and collaborations at the interface between chemistry, physics and biology. 

Important aspects related to the preparation, characterization, biological evaluation and toxicity of drug nanocarriers will be presented in a comprehensive manner for those starting in the field, or willingly to acquire a common language to work in an interdisciplinary environment.

Current pharmacotherapy against severe diseases frequently fails due to the little or negligible specificity of drug molecules for non-healthy cells. In order to meet the challenge, nanomedicine, involving the formulation of nanoparticulate carriers for drug molecules, is considered a revolutionary concept in the disease arena and is under intense investigation. The use of biodegradable drug-loaded nanoplatforms can result in improved drug localization into the disease site with negligible distribution into non-targeted sites, enhanced therapeutic activity and minimized systemic side effects.

The usefulness of nanoparticles to treat severe diseases and infections will be highlighted. Most advanced methodologies and equipment to elaborate surface-modified nanoparticles and characterize them will be presented. Modern techniques such as stimuli-induced release of active molecules and usefulness of nanoparticles in radiation therapy will be presented.
A special session will be dedicated to challenges related to the treatment of life-threatening infections, such as tuberculosis.
A series of conferences will be focused on modern imaging techniques to study the fate of nanoparticulate systems, both in vitro and in vivo. Toxicological aspects related to the use of nanoparticles will be thoroughly discussed by experts in the field.

All platforms share the objectives to organise the nanomedicine community at their national level and to represent the interest and competences of their communities at the political and international level. This makes them very complementary to the ETPN and an ideal partner for the development of nanomedicine in Europe, closer to the national specificities and national stakeholders. To intensify the communication and mutual learning between the national platforms the idea of setting-up kind of a round table of the platforms was born at San Sebastian and I am happy that the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission in Ispra, Italy has taken the initiative to organise the first edition of such a meeting on 22nd/23rd June 2015 at their place in Ispra. One aim of this meeting was to better understand each other’s aims, abilities and challenges and how we can learn from each other to improve our own performance. An additional aim was to find ways ETPN and the national platforms can work together and support each other in their efforts to improve funding and translation of nanomedicine at the Member State and European level.
At the next General Assembly in Dublin, we will report on the progress of this initiative.
