Program areas at HESI

Protein allergens, toxins and bioinformatics (patb) formerly "protein allergenicity technical committee (patc): the patb represents the only Hesi committee that is devoted exclusively to science issues associated with agricultural biotechnology and food safety. Its mission is to advance the scientific understanding of relevant parameters for characterizing the allergenic potential of novel proteins and biotechnology products, through three main activities: experimental research, assessment tools and international outreach. Experimental research: in 2017, the patb committee continued research work on multi-sector laboratory projects, in collaboration with the academic medical center/university of amsterdam (the netherlands). Specifically, the "allergen rebuild" project aims to evaluate the impact on allergenicity of targeted amino acid replacements in the protein sequence of know allergens, at the functional and structural levels. In q3 of 2017 the committee has also initiated a new research project, the "food matrix" project, to study the impact of food matrices on the digestibility of proteins ...

Developmental and reproductive toxicology technical committee (dart): the mission of the dart committee is to provide a forum where scientists from industry, government and academia can exchange information and initiate activities to advance science related to developmental and reproductive toxicology, and to develop consensus in the scientific community on the appropriate use of experimental toxicity data for human Health risk assessment. In 2017, the committee held two workshops, including one in europe. It also continued to sponsor global projects addressing developmental and reproductive toxicity. Key projects included continued analyses of a database of historical and current pharmaceutical dart studies to address the current re-evaluation of the pharmaceutical testing paradigm and a multi-pronged project addressing the needs of neonatal pediatric therapeutics. The committee completed two experimental projects (a multi-laboratory evaluation of a consensus list of developmental toxicants for the in vitro methods and an evaluation of the development and expression of ...

Cardiac safety technical committee: the mission of the cardiac safety technical committee is to improve public Health by reducing unanticipated cardiovascular-related adverse effects from drugs or chemicals and develop innovative approaches to support early detection and prediction as well as improved understanding of cardiovascular toxicology and pathobiology. In 2017, the committee continued to sponsor projects addressing cardiovascular safety testing. The committee also participated and presented their work at meetings in the us, uk, and germany. Key projects included a proof-of-concept study to identify biomarkers of bleeding disorders, understanding concordance between animal and human data, and using stem cells to predict arrhythmic risk. Additionally, a new partnership was formed with an academic institution in the uk to analzye data generated in a previous study to better understand parameters of cardiac contractility, a measure of heart function. These studies resulted in 4 publications and the committee is working on another 4 publications. ...
