Immunotoxicity

Immunotoxicology focuses on the adverse effects of chemicals and pharmaceutical on the immune system. A separate set of immunotocology studies are required as general toxicology tests do not readily demonstrate the immune system disfunctions caused by the test article.

Main study options

• Skin sensitization (guinea pigs)

• Maximization test, Buehler test

• Skin photosensitisation (guinea pigs)

• Local lymph node assay (mice)
