Cyprotex PLC Enhances SenCeeTox Technology for Prediction of in Vitro Skin Sensitisation

Cyprotex PLC announced significant advances in its SenCeeTox model for the prediction of in vitro skin sensitisation. SenCeeTox, originally developed by CeeTox in Kalamazoo, was acquired by Cyprotex when it purchased the business and assets of CeeTox Inc. in January 2014. SenCeeTox is an in vitro model which assesses multiple endpoints to determine general cytotoxicity, binding of reactive compounds (one of the initial steps in skin sensitisation) and regulation of genes involved in skin sensitisation. Cyprotex has utilised its internal expertise in skin sensitisation and predictive modeling to significantly improve the predictivity of the SenCeeTox model over the currently available in vitro approaches. Furthermore, it is one of the only in vitro models on the market which can accurately predict skin sensitisation potency for categorising into non/minimal, moderate, strong and extreme sensitisers in both 2D and 3D cellular systems. Within the EU, there has been a complete ban on animal testing of cosmetics and personal care ingredients and finished products. This has placed a much greater emphasis on developing alternative in vitro methods. The majority of cosmetic and personal care products are applied topically to the skin, and therefore skin sensitisation is a critical part of the testing strategy before a product reaches the market. Regulatory guidelines have been drafted for two in vitro skin sensitisation methods, the Direct Peptide Reactivity Assay (known as DPRA) and KeratinoSensTM, both of which are offered as services by Cyprotex. However, these single endpoint assays only define individual mechanisms and do not categorise skin sensitisation potency. For this reason, the regulatory authorities recommend a tiered testing strategy using multiple mechanistic endpoints. SenCeeTox® addresses these concerns by monitoring multiple endpoints from a single incubation, by providing potency categorisation and exceeding the predictive capability of both DPRA and KeratinoSensTM. An additional advantage of SenCeeTox® is that it can be used either within a 2D cell-based model or in a 3D skin tissue model. The development of the 3D model is essential for testing finished products such as lotions and creams which cannot be applied directly to single layers of cells.

Cyprotex plc Announces Launch of KeratinoSens Service

Cyprotex PLC announced the launch of a new in vitro screening service for determining skin sensitisation using the KeratinoSens test method. In February 2014, EURL ECVAM (European Union Reference Laboratory for Alternatives to Animal Testing) published its recommendation on the KeratinoSens assay for use within an integrated strategy for skin sensitisation testing. The draft OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) test guidelines were released in May 2014 and Cyprotex has validated the assay based on these guidelines. Establishing in vitro alternatives to animal testing is a key goal of the regulatory authorities especially in the cosmetics and personal care markets where there has been a ban on animal testing in many countries for these products. The KeratinoSens test method extends Cyprotex's range of services in this segment. The Company now has a comprehensive panel of relevant in vitro methods for testing of skin and ocular irritation, skin corrosion, skin sensitisation, skin absorption and phototoxicity which are available to customers in the personal care/cosmetics, chemical and household products, and pharmaceutical industries. A skin sensitiser is a substance that leads to an allergic response following skin contact. This can manifest itself as allergic contact dermatitis which is a major occupational and environmental disease. Skin sensitisation is an important field of research for Cyprotex. As well as offering standard test methods such as the direct peptide reactivity assay (DPRA) and KeratinoSens, CeeTox (acquired by Cyprotex in January 2014) developed the SenCeeTox method which uses a multiparametric approach to evaluate skin sensitisation within a 3D skin model. Cyprotex continue to develop and improve this technology and it is a popular approach for screening finished products such as creams or lotions and insoluble chemicals.
