The 36th Annual Scientific Meeting of the BSTP
As you are aware the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has had repercussions for a number of events in relation to regional and international travel.
Unfortunately because the long term effect of the virus is not known at this time, the plan is for the meeting to be rearranged for November 2021, however, until we know when face to face events can take place again, we are unable to confirm the venue.
The BSTP are sorry that it has not been possible to make any arrangements for this event to take place sooner, but as soon regional and international travel is reopened for events such as this, the new dates and a venue for the meeting will be confirmed, the details will be posted here.
The 36th Annual Scientific Meeting of the BSTP – Pathology of Humanised Mouse Models
Thursday 11th and Friday 12th November 2021
Venue to be confirmed depending on restrictions still in place due to Covid-19
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 first day of the meeting will include the Annual General Meeting of the BSTP.
