Evidence-Based Toxicology Collaboration

Kick-off meeting of the Evidence-Based Toxicology Collaboration (EBTC) Europe

In conjunction with Eurotox Congress 2012

(Stockholm, Sweden)

June 17, 2012 | 15:30h – 17:30h

Radisson Blu Royal Viking Hotel • Vasagatan 1, Stockholm, Sweden

Following the US effort of creating an Evidence-based Toxicology Collaboration (EBTC) in 2011, a European counterpart to adapt Evidence-based Medicine (EBM) principles to toxicology is being started. Evidence-Based Toxicology (EBT) seeks to systematically implement transparency, objectivity, and consistency in toxicology. The EBM toolbox (e.g., systematic reviews and test assessment methodology) is available for translation to toxicology, as are the approaches of the Cochrane Collaboration, which applies and fosters systematic reviews. Interested scientists attended the official kick-off of the European branch of the EBTC to learn more about the collaboration.
