AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 4113 NICEATM, in collaboration with the Interagency Coordinating Committee on the Validation of Alternative Methods (ICCVAM), announces a public meeting of an independent scientific peer review panel (Panel) to evaluate the validation status of LUMI–CELL® ER (BG1Luc ER TA), an in vitro transcriptional activation (TA) assay used to identify chemicals that can interact with human estrogen receptors (ERs). Validated assays that can detect the interaction of chemicals with specific hormone receptors, including ERs, have been accepted and included in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program (EDSP) (http://www.epa.gov/endo/pubs/ assayvalidation/status.htm). Consequently, the BG1Luc ER TA may be applicable for addressing the ER TA component of the EPA EDSP Tier 1 screening battery. At this meeting, the Panel will review the draft BRD for the BG1Luc ER TA and evaluate the extent to which established validation and acceptance criteria have been appropriately addressed. The Panel also will be asked to comment on the extent to which the information included in the BRD supports ICCVAM’s draft test method recommendations. NICEATM invites public comments on the draft BRD and draft ICCVAM test method recommendations. These documents are available on the NICEATM–ICCVAM Web site at: http://iccvam.niehs.nih.gov/methods/ endocrine/PeerPanel11.htm. DATES: The meeting will be held on March 29–30, 2011, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. In order to facilitate planning for this meeting, persons wishing to attend are asked to register by March 15, 2011, via the NICEATM– ICCVAM Web site (http:// iccvam.niehs.nih.gov/contact/reg-formEDpanel.htm).
