Announcing INHAND Nomenclature Change Control
The INHAND Project (International Harmonization of Nomenclature and Diagnostic Criteria for Lesions) is a joint initiative of the STP, ESTP, BSTP and JSTP to develop an internationally-accepted nomenclature for proliferative and non-proliferative lesions in laboratory animals. The INHAND nomenclature is being adopted by the US FDA for use in the SEND initiative (Standard for the Exchange of Nonclinical Data). Pathologists who discover a lesion in a toxicity study that is not covered by the INHAND nomenclature are encouraged to request a new INHAND term. In addition, changes, additions, and updates to current terms may be desirable and may be requested.

Three selected half-day courses recorded during the STP 2012 Annual Symposium are now available online for member audio/visual viewing. Mechanism-Based Approaches to Cardiovascular Safety Assessment is also offered for online CE credits*. (Member login required.)
The Role of the Toxicologic Pathologist in the Biopharmaceutical Industry
As part of an STP initiative to provide awareness of the specialized role of toxicologic pathologists in the biopharmaceutical industry, a review paper was published in the International Journal of Toxicology to educate and to attract new scientists and veterinarians to the field.
*This CE course meets the requirements for 3.5 hours of continuing education as a noninteractive online program, as well as seminar/lecture in jurisdictions which recognize AAVSB’s RACE approval; however participants should be aware that some boards have limitations on the number of hours accepted in certain categories and/or restrictions on certain methods of delivery of continuing education.
