The 36th Annual Scientific Meeting of the BSTP
The 36th Annual Scientific Meeting of the BSTP – Pathology of Humanised Mouse Models
Wednesday 10th – Friday 12th November 2021
13.00 – 17.00 (GMT+0/UCT+0)
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has had repercussions for all events in relation to regional and international travel so the 36th ASM will be held as a virtual event using Zoom on the afternoons of Wednesday 10th, Thursday 11th and Friday 12th November 2021, from 13.00 – 17.00 (GMT+0/UCT+0) each day.
Immunodeficient mice reconstituted with a human immune system are increasingly used for modelling the human immune compartment in numerous preclinical applications, such as adoptive cell therapy and immuno-oncology studies. With the advent of new Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products, humanised mice are likely to become more and more a key component of efficacy and safety assessment in preclinical programmes, including GLP studies. However, limited information is available concerning the morphological aspects of human cell engraftment and the spectrum of spontaneous and experimentally-induced histopathological lesions occurring in these mice.
Working with the Pathological Society of Great Britain and Ireland the meeting will cover the main features of the different humanised mouse platforms; their experimental applications in drug development, oncology and gene and cell therapies; specific safety and regulatory considerations; and future promise and remaining challenges. A short session will be also devoted to chimeric mice with humanised livers, as tools for the study of human drug metabolism and toxicity. The aim is also to have parallel sessions covering ‘mouse pathology’ and ‘humanised mice in preclinical studies: context and regulatory aspects’.
The Annual General Meeting of the BSTP will be held as a separate meeting later in November 2021 – details to be announced.
