Safety Evaluation Ultimately Replacing Animal Testing (SEURAT-1)
Owner/Developer: European Commission and Cosmetics Europe
The goal of the 5-year SEURAT-1 Research Initiative ('Towards the replacement of in vivo repeated dose systemic toxicity testing') was to develop a consistent research strategy ready for implementation in following research programmes. This includes establishing innovative scientific tools for better understanding of repeated dose toxicity based on in vitro tests, and identifies gaps of knowledge to be bridged by future research work. The end result would be testing methods which, within the framework of safety assessment, have a higher predictive value, are faster and cheaper than those currently used, and significantly reduce the use of animal tests.
