In vitro lung models Back
The program will cover practical use of respiratory in vitro 3D tissues and exposure devices to evaluate acute and repeated dose inhalation toxicity. To mimic systemic context, interconnection strategies of lung tissues will be presented. Activities will be split into four sections:
• In vitro models and tests for inhalation toxicity assessment (human and rodent 3D models): Epithelix
• In vitro models and assays to detect lung carcinogenesis: OncoTheis
• Exposure strategies and devices for testing at the Air-Liquid. Interface: Vitrocell
• Interconnection of respiratory tissues and online detection of their integrity: Hepia
