NEWSLETTER 16/2018 BIO BASIC EUROPE: DEVELOPING OF IN VITRO METHODS ALTERNATIVE TO ANIMAL TESTING / ISS – OIE AGREEMENT

We inform that the Italian Institute of Health (ISS) in a press release, stated to have signed an agreement with the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) on the 24th June 2018, for a high quality research to be promoted and carried out following the “One Health” approach (concept of health to be extended to animals and environment, in addition to humans).

We reaffirm BIO BASIC EUROPE commitment to the application and developing of in vitro methods, alternative to animal testing.

At BIO BASIC LAB, in the research centre “Parco Tecnico Scientifico” of Pavia, we perform both regulated and internal safety and efficacy evaluations on cosmetic products, medical devices, and food supplements.

In order to cancel the impact on animals exploited for scientific and commercial purposes, when it is possible we prefer to perform in vitro tests on reconstructed human epitheliums, whose tissue is more complex than common cell lines.

Examples of IN VITRO SAFETY TESTS performed in BIO BASIC LAB:

IN VITRO CITOTOXICITY TEST | PHOTOTOXICITY TEST 3T3 NRU | IN VITRO CORROSION TEST | EYE IRRITATION TEST | SKIN IRRITATION TEST | IN CHEMICO SKIN SENSITIZATION (DPRA) TEST | IN VITRO EVALUATION OF THE PRO-SENSITIZING POTENTIAL | SCREENING TEST - PRELIMINARY EVALUATION OF THE POTENTIAL PRO-SENSITIZING ACTION OF A PRODUCT, WITH AN ASSESSMENT OF THE CELL MORPHOLOGY

Example of CLAIMS substantiated by IN VITRO EFFICACY TESTS performed in BIO BASIC LAB:

ANTI-AGING | ANTI-PHOTOAGING | PROTECTIVE | REPAIRING | PIGMENTING | WHITENING | TANNING | ANTI-POLLUTION | KERATOLITIC | CELL RENEWAL | REGENERATING | ELASTICIZING | BARRIER EFFECT | WOUND HEALING | SOOTHING | ANTI-REDDENING | LIPOREDUCING | VOLUMIZING | MOISTURIZING | MUCOADHESIVE | ANTI-HAIR LOSS

NEWSLETTER 6/2018 LAST CONGRESSES

On the 11th of April 2018, Bio Basic Europe sponsored the Minisimposio "Innovative tests for in vitro and microbiological safety assessment of cosmetic products" at the 18th NATIONAL CONGRESS OF THE ITALIAN SOCIETY OF TOXICOLOGY in Bologna.

The introduction was provided by Dr. Umberto Pianca (Managing Director and Chairman of Bio Basic Europe Technical-Scientific Committee), who, after thanking those present, explained the characteristics of the scientific research performed in Bio Basic Europe laboratories since 2017.

European Regulation 1223/09, which came into force in all its parts in 2013, prohibits animal testing on finished cosmetic products and on the ingredients used in the formulation.

For the mandatory assessment of the safety of cosmetic products it was therefore necessary to develop alternative in vitro methods, on cell cultures or reconstructed human tissues.

Dr. Claudio Angelinetta (Technical Director of Bio Basic Europe), chaired the following speeches:
• Dr. Riccardo Vicini (Bio Basic Europe Head of In Vitro Laboratory): A new approach to assess the safety of cosmetic products by combining in vitro and in vivo methods;
• Dr.ssa Alice Buzzella (Bio Basic Europe In Vitro Laboratory and University of Pavia): Development of an alternative method for the in vitro evaluation of the sensitizing potential;
• Dr.ssa Veronica Cattaneo (University of Pavia): Evolution of the new preservative systems and verification of their effectiveness according to the UNI EN ISO 11930: 2012 standard.

Finally, Dr. Pianca emphasized the strategic importance of having chosen the University of Pavia, and in particular the Department of Biology and Biotechnology "L. Spallanzani ", as a partner for the development of scientific research, promoted in the front line by Prof. Ornella Pastoris.

ANVUR published the list of the 180 university departments of excellence 2018-2022 on the 9th of January 2018. University of Pavia sees five of its departments in this list, including the Dept. of Biology and Biotechnology "L. Spallanzani". A result that places the university second in Lombardy and eighth in Italy, and which will have a positive effect on the progress of scientific research in the three years 2019-22.

We remind that the first two works were presented as a poster also at the 10' TOXICOLOGY CONGRESS IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES (CTDC10) in Belgrade, from the 18th to the 21st of April.
