OECD Aims to Extend Acceptance of Non-Animal Test Data

The OECD has launched a project to create a system for interpreting data, in an effort to extend use of non-animal testing through the mutual acceptance of data (MAD) scheme.

MAD can rarely be applied to non-standalone alternative test data because of complex relationships between test methods and prediction models that associate data from multiple sources. The OECD project – adopted at the recent meeting of the working group of the national coordinators of the test guidelines programme (WNT) – aims to overcome this issue by developing a “defined approach” to interpreting non-animal test data.
