Launch of Endocrine Active Substances Information System

The European Commission has recently launched the Endocrine Active Substances Information System (EASIS). This web-based application, developed by the Joint Research Centre (JRC), allows searching and collecting results from different scientific studies on chemicals related to endocrine activity, and aims to facilitate the creation of toxicity predicative models. The system currently contains data on 513 substances collected from over 9 thousand studies covering in vitro and in vivo assays in different species, including some human data. These are substances to be found in, for example, plant protection and biocidal products, industrial chemicals, or pharmaceuticals.
