IDEA - International Dialogue for the Evaluation of Allergens

Second IDEA Workshop on risk assessment of pre- and pro-haptens: 'Expert Workshop'

Published on 8 June 2015

On May 28-29, 2013, IDEA brought together leading dermatology, toxicology and chemistry experts to review the current understanding of biological and chemical mechanisms involved in pre- and pro-haptens activity, and consider the potential implications for risk assessment.  

The second Workshop, scheduled for June 16 and 17, 2015 in Genval, Belgium, is designed as an ‘Expert’ WS specifically focusing on an improved mechanistic understanding of pre- and pro hapten formation as well as on progressing the analytical development for following hapten formation from pre/pro haptens in raw materials and finished products as well as on the skin. 

A follow up Workshop on October 20 and 21, 2015 in Brussels. This meeting will then bridge what will be worked out in the June Expert Workshop and progressed over the summer, with the clinical findings.
