Performance Standards for the Local Lymph Node Assay endorsed

The ECVAM Scientific Advisory Committee (ESAC) has endorsed the scientific validity of the harmonised ECVAM performance standards for the Local Lymph Node Assay (LLNA) at its 29th meeting held in November 2008.

The LLNA is a scientifically validated and regulatory accepted method for assessing the skin sensitisation potential of chemicals.

Detailed information can be found on the ECVAM's website NEWS/EVENTS and MEETINGS section.

Please note that any test method submitted to or validated by ECVAM must be reviewed and endorsed by its Scientific Advisory Committee before they can be used within the regulatory framework.

As soon as more background documentation will become available for public access, we will update the website.
