Best practices for the conduct of preclinical ototoxicity evaluation : Talking Tox Webinar Replay

CILcare is pleased to share the replay of the Talking Tox Webinar that took place as part of ACT’s 42nd virtual annual meeting, featuring experts from the FDA, CILcare and CBSET

Ototoxicity resulting in inner ear damage is a leading cause of acquired hearing loss worldwide. About 1 billion people around the world are at risk of avoidable hearing loss according to the World Health Organization. This could be minimized or avoided by early testing hearing functions in the preclinical phase. While the assessment of ototoxicity is defined for otic drug products, current guidance for human drug development does not specifically mention the assessment of auditory structure & function. Except for otic formulations, the nonclinical assessment for ototoxicity of drug candidates in general toxicology studies is limited. Unfortunately, this has resulted in more than 200 ototoxic marketed medications. This webinar, presented by experts in the field, provides a look into ototoxicity assessment from early-stage screening to GLP studies and addresses current guidelines and recommendations to successfully build your dossier. It will help you learn:

  • Why it is important to run ototoxicity assessments in the early phase and what are the available models used in screening with an emphasis on cochlear explants
  • What are the animal models, as well as the sensitive & specific techniques to assess ototoxicity in GLP and non GLP preclinical studies that can provide reliable safety data with a focus on:
    • ABR measurements: reproducibility, throughput, data management
    • Histology assessment with cochleogram
  • What are the current regulatory guidelines for non-clinical safety auditory assessment
