Cade. Some of the same enzymatic inhibitors block mammalian and horseshoe crab coagulation, and synthetic substrates designed for the assay of human coagulation factors are also substrates for the components of the Limulus coagulation system (reviewed by Fujita and Nakahara, 1982 and Levin, 1985). blood is not the only in vivo response to endotoxin but is to be expected following exposure to sufficiently high quantities of endotoxin (Prior, 1990). The LAL test, like the rabbit pyrogenicity test, does not predict every possible outcome of exposure to endotoxin.

Human safety requires a guarantee that the test identifies a toxic agent by mechanisms that are understood to be related to toxicity in vivo. A carnation test does not provide this guarantee. A successful test, such as the LAL test, fulfills the objectives of reducing, 36 0. Flint refining and replacing animals in medical experiments, but this is not its primary objective. Human safety is the primary objective (Flint, 1992). The conclusions reached so far in this discussion may seem to have been sufficiently self-evident not to have required discussion at all.

The various steps of the current process are given in Figure 2-1 (Koeter, 1993). Some particularly important features of this scheme deserve attention. In each member country a person is responsible for coordinating nationally the OECD activity on test guidelines. In general, these national coordinators are officials from a government department, agency, or institute in charge of environmental protection, who work i n close collaboration with their counterparts in the public health sector. The national coordinators maintain an efficient network for consulting with national experts, who should represent as broadly as possible the country’s expertise in the different areas of test methodology.
