As part of the Interagency Regulatory Alternatives Group (IRAG) program to evaluate the state of the art in the development of alternative (non-whole animal) eye irritation tests, academic and industrial organizations were invited to submit in vitro eye irritation data generated in their laboratories to one of several working groups for review. The assays(More)
