Importance & Scope:

Toxicology is the study of the adverse effects of physical, chemical and biological agents on the living system and the subsequent expression of these changes. The safety evaluation of pharma products involves evaluation for the risk that a drug can pose to animals and man with respect to normal physiological function and reproductive performance. Drug safety and efficacy testing are essential for new pharma drugs, biological, herbal and natural remedies, nutraceuticals and probiotic food products, and select cosmetics before they are introduced in the market.

International guidelines, particularly standards of toxicity testing, are changing very fast. Good laboratory practice is mandatory standard for laboratories for global acceptance of the work. With these challenges, it is important to understand the increasing scope of toxicology in drug safety evaluation.

The scientific program of Toxicology 2015 includes a plenary session, symposia, workshops, panel discussions, informational sessions, regional sessions, and poster sessions. Toxicology-2015 enhances opportunities for educational development and to exchange the knowledge in toxicology and its applications.

Why Philadelphia?

The National Center for Toxicological Research (NCTR) is the only FDA Center located outside the Washington D.C. metropolitan area. The one-million square foot research campus in Jefferson, Arkansas plays a critical role in the missions of FDA and the Department of Health and Human Services to promote and protect public health. Regulatory science researchers, academia, and other regulatory science research organizations and groups from around the world investigate, learn, and train at the Federal facility. NCTR, FDA's internationally recognized research center, plays a critical role in FDA’s mission.  The unique scientific expertise of NCTR is critical in supporting FDA product centers and their regulatory roles.

The University of Pennsylvania, the largest private employer in Philadelphia, is a world-renowned leader in education, research, and innovation. This historic, Ivy League school consistently ranks among the top 10 universities in the annual U.S. News & World Report survey. Penn has 12 highly-regarded schools that provide opportunities for undergraduate, graduate and continuing education, all influenced by Penn’s distinctive interdisciplinary approach to scholarship and learning. At University of the Sciences in Philadelphia, an individual can improve his/her marketability and career prospects with a master’s or doctoral degree in both toxicology and pharmacology fields.

Conference Highlights:

  • Modes of Toxic Action
  • Measurement of Toxicants and Toxicity
  • Applied Toxicology
  • Chemical Toxicity
  • Regulatory Toxicology

Why to attend???

Toxicology global summit is a venue where you can share your research views and ideas in latest scientific achievements in the arena of toxicology & applied pharmacology and other related disciplines. Anticipating over 300 toxicologists from more than 25 countries in attendance, this three-day event allows everyone the opportunity to network with colleagues and leading scientists from around the world. More than 20 percent of the attendees come from countries as far away as Australia, Egypt, China, Latin America, and Africa. Toxicologists can explore lessons learned, share scientific findings, and novel approaches with other toxicologists at this annual event, which is designed to showcase the year’s latest in research.

An industrial exhibition will be organized in the same room where the poster sessions, lunch and coffee breaks will be held throughout the entire congress. Attendees and exhibitors from around the globe gather to exchange ideas and debut cutting-edge products, toxicity testing services, technologies.

Market Analysis of Toxicology:

The Toxicology global market is segmented by industry, technology, method, application and geography. Based on industry, the market is further segmented into diagnostics, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, cosmetics, and food. Pharmaceutical industry secured the largest market share whereas cosmetics industry was the fastest growing industry than the rest. The inclination towards detection of toxicity during earlier stages of development is propelling the growth of pharmaceutical industry. Also, the support of regulatory authorities to use in vitro and in silico methods in place of animal testing for gathering toxicological information is driving the cosmetic industry. Based on technology, the market is segmented into cell culture, high throughput screening, cellular imaging, and omics technologies. Cell culture technology that occupies the largest market share will also register maximum growth rate. The evolution and advancement is leading to introduction of new technologies that can better predict toxicity levels and translate in vitro results into significant in vivo effects.

In-vitro toxicology testing market forecast to surpass revenues of US$17Bn by 2018.

The in-vitro toxicology testing market represents a highly fragmented market although the most dominant players operating in this sector include

  • Agilent Technologies (U.S.)
  • Alere, Inc. (U.S.)
  • Bio-Rad (U.S.)
  • BioReliance (Sigma Aldrich) (U.S.)
