Advanced 3D In Vitro Tissue Models Offer Valuable Insight into Product Safety

Alex Armento – MatTek Corporation

Advancements in tissue engineering combined with a greater understanding of basic human skin biology have driven the development of highly predictive in vitro test methods. 3D in vitro skin models can be used to evaluate standard toxicity endpoints (irritancy, corrosion, sensitization, etc.) in addition to ever more complex product safety questions, including elucidation of the molecular mechanisms driving skin toxicity. This presentation will provide a current overview of both the advantages and limitations that 3D tissue models offer for the development of skin care products and outline product development strategies utilizing commercially available 3D tissue models.
