ICH S7A clearly suggests testing all drugs for neurotoxic effects without suggesting specific testing methods. Undoubtedly, the value of preclinical neurotoxicity screens relies on their ability to properly identify and predict adverse effects on the nervous system. Thus there is a growing need for universally accepted and well-validated assessment tools that can describe neurotoxic effects using histological, behavioral and molecular techniques.
The objective of the Safety Neuropharmacology meeting is to bring together experts from a variety of disciplines to review the conventional methods of neurotoxicity assessment, while incorporating new methodology for a current discussion of how best to evaluate neurotoxic effects in pharmaceutical development. Delegates will hear practical presentations on:
DEFINING ICH S7A FOR CNS SAFETY PHARMACOLOGY BEYOND THE FOB
DESIGNING, CONDUCTING, ANALYZING AND INTERPRETING COST-EFFECTIVE CNS SAFETY PHARMACOLOGY STUDY PROGRAMS
ENSURING GLP IN NEUROBEHAVIORAL TESTING
THE EUROPEAN REGULATORY PERSPECTIVE ON CNS SAFETY PHARMACOLOGY SCREENING
THE USE OF AUTOMATED SYSTEMS FOR COMPLEX BEHAVIORAL ANALYSES
EVALUATING THE POTENTIAL FOR DRUG ABUSE OR DEPENDENCE
...among many others from regulatory, academic and industry leaders in the field.
