Obiettivi formativi
The main objectives of this module are:
1. to provide notions for a correct characterization and interpretation of genotoxic, cancerogenic, immunotoxic and reproductive adverse effects of xenobiotics.
2. to characterize their molecular mechanisms of action.
3. to provide notions on preclinical toxicology for product development and the EU legislations concerning the following endpoints: genotoxicity, cancerogenicity, immunotoxicity, reproductive and developmental toxicity.
Lectures will be dedicated to the introduction of the different topics and their toxicological evaluation, while the tutorials will be dedicated to the discussion of current OECD guidelines with a direct involvement of students.
Risultati apprendimento attesi
Students must learn the basic principles of genotoxicity, cancerogenicity, reproductive toxicity and immunotoxicity and their assessment. The tutorials also aim to stimulate the student toward critical thinking and problem solving, promoting his/her attitude to growth and constant improvement (lifelong learning). At the end, to assess the actual learning of the student, an oral examination of approximately 30 minutes on the topics and issues related to the evaluation of these critical toxicity endpoints as discussed during lectures will be done.
