Review of available methods for assessing chemical safety promotes alternatives to animal testing

In support of EU legislation on safety of chemicals, the JRC has published a state-of-the art review of test methods and non-testing (computational) approaches that help promote the replacement, reduction, and refinement of animal experiments - known as the 3Rs - in the safety assessment of chemicals.

How are breast cancer care services organised in Europe?

How are breast cancer care services organised in Europe?

The JRC published a comprehensive report of breast cancer care services in Europe based on a survey which analysed the current situation in 25 countries that voluntarily participated in the study. This report is a major step towards the development of a European quality assurance scheme for breast cancer services, which is part of the European Commission Initiative on Breast Cancer coordinated by the JRC.

Healthy eating – healthy ageing?

Healthy eating – healthy ageing?

Nutritional shortcomings are a key driver of age-related decline and disability whereas proper diet can increase years of healthy life. In support of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (the Partnership), JRC scientists have reviewed the evidence on the role key nutrients and diet plays in promoting healthy ageing.

Alternatives to animal testing: EURL ECVAM publishes its Recommendation on the Zebrafish Embryo Acute Toxicity Test Method (ZFET) for Acute Aquatic Toxicity Testing

Alternatives to animal testing: EURL ECVAM publishes its Recommendation on the Zebrafish Embryo Acute Toxicity Test Method (ZFET) for Acute Aquatic Toxicity Testing

The Zebrafish Embryo Acute Toxicity Test Method (ZFET) should be used for generating information on acute fish toxicity, where appropriate. Its use would result in an overall reduction of the numbers of juvenile and adult fish for aquatic toxicity testing.
