As with the assessment of developmental toxicology, the most expedient way to evaluate developmental milestones may be with a standardized screen to identify effects, leaving in vitro mechanistic evaluations in the realm of effect characterization on a case-by-case basis.
The work group was composed of scientists from academia, the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, and federal agencies with expertise in developmental immunology, developmental toxicology, immunotoxicology, and risk evaluation.
The major objective of the work group was to identify a simple study design that best addressed hazard identification, so it was agreed that the exposure design should be sufficiently flexible to be incorporated into existing developmental toxicology protocols, rather than needing to be a "stand-alone" study.
To search for such end points, he reviewed an existing NTP paper on developmental toxicology published in the April 1993 issue of EHP, collected data from newer NTP studies, and put his findings into tabular form.
