Bridging the Gap between In Vitro and In Vivo Toxicology Testing

Marion Ehrich

In vitro systems for neurotoxicological studies can be useful for the investigation of events associated with pertubations of cellular and molecular targets that are similar to those in the intact animal. The toxicities of organophosphorus compounds, which inhibit esterases, and 1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP), which depletes dopamine, can be studied in human neuroblastoma cells.
