Nominations Requested of Reference Chemicals for In Vitro Metabolism Assays

The National Toxicology Program (NTP) Interagency Center for the Evaluation of Alternative Toxicological Methods (NICEATM) requests the nomination of reference chemicals, with supporting data, to be used to validate in vitro metabolizing systems with the potential to interact with estrogen receptors (ERs) or androgen receptors (ARs).  Specifically, reference chemicals are needed to characterize the usefulness and limitations of in vitro metabolizing systems for use in conjunction with ER and AR transactivation tests. The deadline for nominations is June 2, 2014. Click here for more information.
