Abstract:

TO ENHANCE THE USEFULNESS OF THE MOUSE LYMPHOMA ASSAY (MLA) FOR PREDICTING THE POSSIBLE OUTCOMES OF EXPOSURE TO CHEMICALS, SOME MLA PROCEDURES WILL BE EXAMINED TO DETERMINEWHETHER A MODIFIED ASSAY WOULD PERMIT GREATER SENSITIVITY AND EASE OF PERFORMANCE. PHASE I RESEARCH WILL INCLUDE: (1) AUTORADIOGRAPHY STUDIES TO DETERMINE IF THE PROCEDURES USED TO CLEANSE THE CULTURES OF TK-/-CELLS RENDER THE CELLS MORE SUSCEPTIBLE TO THE EFFECTS OF MUTAGENS, INDUCE A SYNCHRONOUS POPULATION OF CELLS THAT MAY BE PRESENT AT THE TIME OF CHEMICAL EXPOSURE, AND/OR INDUCE MUTAGENESIS AND CHROMOSOMAL ABERRATIONS; (2) MUTAGENESIS ASSAYS TO EVALUATE THE IMPACT OF VARYING THE EXPOSURE TIME TO DIFFERENT CHEMICAL CONCENTRATIONS; (3) USE OF AN AUTOMATED SYSTEM TO DETERMINE THE MOST PRECISE AND EFFICIENT METHOD FOR COUNTINGCELLS IN SUSPENSION; AND (4) EXPERIMENTS TO INVESTIGATE ASSAY MODIFICATIONS FOR CLONING CELLS IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE CLONING PERIOD. BASED ON THE OUTCOME OF PHASE I EXPERIMEN- TATION, A MODIFIED MLA WILL BE RECOMMENDED. IT WILL BE EVALUATED IN PHASE II BY ADDITIONAL RESEARCH AND THE TESTINGOF CODED COMPOUNDS. AS A RESULT OF THIS RESEARCH, THE MLA SHOULD BE MORE SENSITIVE, ECONOMICAL, AND PREDICTIVE OF GENOTOXICITY, WHICH SHOULD LEAD TO GREATER ACCEPTABILITY ANDUSE OF THE ASSAY IN INDUSTRIAL AND COMMERCIAL LABORATORIES.
