Masterproject - Toxicity testing in an artificial lung

Det Nationale Forskningscenter for Arbejdsmiljø

Studieprojekt/speciale
Storkøbenhavn

The alternative method we are working on, allows the substance to be tested in an artificial lung. If you do your masters project with us, you will use this method to test chemicals for their potential inhalation toxicity, and help gather the information needed for this test to become an alternative to the current test regime, at the same time. So that producers and regulators can determine if a chemical or mixture is safe before it is marketed.  

Acute toxicity after inhalation is a problem worldwide, and the consequences can be serious for the individual. The toxic potential for a substance can change with the solvent it is dissolved in, for example in consumer products. As chemicals can be mixed in endless combinations in products, it is impossible for producers to test every combination. There is a need for a fast and reliable screening method for acute inhalation toxicity.

The method is based on lung surfactant function. Lung surfactant is a thin layer of liquid that coats the deepest parts of the lungs and regulates surface tension during breathing. The surface tension changes when you breathe as the area of the lungs is increased and decreased cyclically. This cycling and compression/decompression is recreated in the test method. The lung surfactant can be subjected to test materials and the read-out determines its potential for causing acute inhalation toxicity.

If you are interested in the project you are welcome to contact me for more details.
