Qualitative and Quantitative Problems in the Extrapolation of Risk to Humans from Animal Data

  • U. Saffiotti

Abstract

The task of this round table is to address qualitative and quantitative problems in the extrapolation of risk to humans from animal data. The emphasis is therefore on the extrapolation from animal studies to human risk as distinct from the extrapolation from human cells to human populations; but I believe that we will probably be able to discuss the whole area to some extent. The round table will be followed by some specific presentations and maybe we will have some time at the end for a general discussion. I would like to ask the participants to feel free to address questions to the speakers of the day on any problems that we did not have time to discuss after the individual presentations.
