EPA Presents Initial Results from Caliper Life Sciences' ToxCast Screening Effort
Date:3/19/2009

of the data generated at CDAS indicate that the goals for high quality data and potential predictive power have been met. For the 11 replicate controls included in the initial 320 compound set, there was greater than 99% concordance in the screening results across 240 assays tested, and more than 200 correlations between the in vitro results generated at CDAS and in vivo toxicity parameters have already been identified. In addition, 75% of the assays tested showed activity for one or more compounds, reinforcing the need for broad in vitro profiling.

"We believe this data presentation validates the importance of in vitro profiling as a tool for predicting potential toxicity liabilities of compounds and highlights the high quality data generated by Caliper," said David Manyak, Ph.D., Executive Vice President of Discovery Services at Caliper Life Sciences. "Our access to the entire Phase I ToxCast database makes Caliper an ideal partner for collaborative data mining projects. We also believe that the assay screening panel employed by Caliper for the ToxCast initiative will be broadly applicable for product development programs within the agricultural chemical and pharmaceutical industries."

The ultimate goal of the ToxCast program is to develop a set of predictive in vitro assays that can supplement or replace in vivo tests currently used for regulatory approval of new environmental chemicals. If successful, the ToxCast initiative will reduce the cost and improve the speed of regulatory approval of new environmental chemicals. More extensive data analysis from the EPA is expected in mid-May of this year.
