iPiE at SETAC EUROPE 29th Annual Meeting on 26-30 May 2019 in Helsinki, Finland
26-30 May 2019
Location: Helsinki, Finland
iPiE project present in the Pharmaceuticals IG Symposium organised by the SETAC Europe Pharmaceutical Interest Group.
The iPiE project was presented at the last SETAC EUROPE 29th Annual Meeting held in Helsinki, Finland, on 26-30 May 2019, at the Pharmaceutical IG symposium session, with the aim to summarise iPiE in detail and to describe the software system and associated predictive tools that can be used in early development programmes for new compounds, and for prioritising legacy products for experimental testing.
The objectives of the iPiE project address important aspects of a pharmaceuticals in the environment (PIE) strategy. The programme focused on the iPiE database, the exposure model and the Ecodrug database developed during the project life.
The session was chaired by Gerd Maack, from the German Environment Agency (Germany).
Jason Snape form AstraZeneca welcomed the attendees on behalf of Reinhard Lange, from Bayer AG (Germany) and iPiE Project Leader, and introduced Katherine Briggs, from Lhasa Ltd. (UK), who made a presentation on how to use existing data and how to extend with new data.
The following session was devoted to the “Developed models”, that was divided into two parts. Ad Ragas, from Radboud University (The Netherlands) presented the “Exposure model “ePIE”, Adsorption and distribution models”. The second part of the session entitled “Toxic ratio models”, was led by Beate Escher from the UFZ (Germany)
Afterwards, Christof Schwab, from Molecular Networks (Germany), introduced the IPIEsys: “Implementation of models, how to access data base and models, connections between different model calculations” and made a demo on iPiE-Sum.
Finally, Alistair Boxall, from the University of York (UK) concluded with a presentation titled “Application of models in prioritization and prediction framework”.
The discussions by the attendees focussed on the data base and the availability of the environmental information for the public, the use of software after the completion of the project and the intended follow-on activities with regard to regulatory acceptance of models and testing strategies.
