Stem Cell Biology and Toxicology 2: This session seeks to address this issue through outlining liver cell heath assays that are fit for purpose, and also outline the development of innovative preclinical test systems, which are both mechanism-based and of physiological, pharmacological, and pathological relevance to DILI in humans.
An iterative, tiered approach with respect to test compounds, test systems, bioanalysis, and mathematical systems analysis has been adopted to evaluate existing models, and develop new models that can provide validated test systems, with respect to the prediction of specific forms of DILI and further elucidation of mechanisms that relate to idiosyncratic DILI.
The approach encompasses completely characterised cell lines, well-defined, and physiologically stable hepatocytes, multi-cell type in vitro models and animal models.
Triangulation of human, in vitro and animal data is providing a fundamental understanding of how drugs can harm the liver, and how this relates to the idiosyncratic response. The objectives of this symposium: Explore and understand the relationship between in vitro assay signals and DILI in vivo, in preclinical test species, and in man; 3.
Enhance shared understanding, between academia, pharma, and regulatory agencies, of the value and limitations of new and existing approaches for DILI hazard identification and risk assessment.

A Race against the Clocks Symposium 2: Cardiovascular Toxicology Specialty Section Inhalation and Respiratory Specialty Section Exposure to air pollution has emerged as one of the leading causes of death world-wide.
The World Health Organization WHO estimates that every year exposure to air pollution causes 7 million premature deaths. Extensive epidemiological studies have shown that exposure to polluted air increases the risk of pulmonary and cardiovascular diseases as well as metabolic disorders; however, the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms have remained elusive.
Air pollution exposure affects pulmonary, cardiac, and vascular functions that follow circadian rhythmicity and increases the risk for pulmonary and cardiovascular events that follow diurnal patterns.

Recent studies have shown that exposures to air pollution disrupt pulmonary and cardiovascular molecular circadian clocks, changes circadian blood pressure pattern, and exacerbates the cardiometabolic effects of dyssynchrony misaligned circadian rhythm.
This symposium will highlight this research, identifying the circadian clocks and rhythms as a novel target of air pollution exposure, and will compare the effects of air pollution on circadian rhythmicity with circadian rhythm disruption induced by other stressors such as ischemia, virus infections and diabetes.
The circadian rhythm—defined as physiological, mental, and behavioral changes following a 24 h cycle—controls fundamental physiology, cellular and molecular processes, such as blood pressure, cell division, and DNA-repair that regulate physiological homeostasis. Circadian rhythmicity is regulated by external signals such as light, temperature, food, or physical activity, called Zeitgeber.
However, the normal circadian rhythmicities of these environmental factors are disrupted by our modern lifestyle choices. For instance, circadian dyssynchrony, the misalignment between the central clock supra chiasmatic nucleus, SCN in the hypothalamus and peripheral clocks by the disturbing the light cycle e.
Although the central pacemaker, the SCN has long been considered the primary regulator of circadian rhythm the discovery of clock gene expression, and function in peripheral tissues has challenged this dogma.
Peripheral circadian clocks play a critical role in optimizing the organization of cellular function in the lungs, and are directly involved in metabolic homeostasis and cardiovascular function.
The studies presented in this symposium will illustrate the importance of different peripheral circadian clocks in the development of pulmonary, cardiovascular, and metabolic disorders, and will provide evidence that exposure to different air pollution disrupt peripheral circadian clocks and circadian rhythm in pulmonary and cardiovascular tissues similar to the circadian misalignment induced by other stressors such as ischemia, virus infections, and diabetes.
