New IUCLID pharmaceutical datasets support alternatives to animal testing

ECHA has published IUCLID structured datasets for 348 approved pharmaceuticals, with results from non-clinical animal studies and human information.  

The new datasets offer robust pharmaceutical information for industry and research in a structured format. They support toxicity assessment of structurally similar chemicals with the goal of reducing the need for animal testing.

Further information can be found in ECHA’s news release.
