RETHINK

The RETHINK project

A comprehensive study that has redefined the use of minipigs in regulatory toxicity testing, highlighting the minipig’s potential as a relevant model for safety testing.

Minipigs as models for the toxicity testing of new medicines and chemicals: An impact assessment

The RETHINK project, is a comprehensive initiative aimed at evaluating the use of minipigs in regulatory toxicity testing. The project assembled expert study groups to review five different areas relating to the use of minipigs in regulatory safety testing. The findings suggested that there were no specific areas where restrictions to the use of minipigs in toxicology were required for welfare reasons. The minipig model was generally acceptable to regulatory authorities, provided it was adequately justified. The minipig was found to be an interesting model for safety testing due to numerous anatomical, physiological, genetic, and biochemical similarities to humans. In addition, many features of the minipig made it a practical and flexible model for safety testing.
