NTP RFI: Available Approaches and Technologies Used to Identify Potential for Heightened Inflammation or Immune Responses

The National Toxicology Program (NTP) at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) requests available data and information on approaches and/or technologies currently used to identify substances with the potential to cause excessive inflammation or exaggerated immune responses leading to tissue injury when swallowed, inhaled, or absorbed through the skin. Submitted information will be used to assess the state of the science and determine technical needs for non-animal test methods that could be used to evaluate the potential of chemicals to induce inflammation and immune-related conditions. The deadline for receipt of information is December 12, 2016.

Data and information should be submitted electronically at the NTP NIEHS website. For further information, please contact Dr. Dori Germolec, Toxicology Branch, Division of NTP, NIEHS; germolec@niehs.nih.gov; 919. 541.3230.
