EURL ECVAM Database Service on Alternative Methods to Animal Experimentation (DB-ALM)

The DB-ALM is a service that provides information on development and applications of advanced and alternative methods to animal experimentation in the field of biomedical sciences and toxicology for research or regulatory purposes.

DB-ALM's rationale is to promote the acceptance and uptake of available alternative methods at all stages of development by providing standardised descriptions in an OECD accepted format.

DB-ALM includes reviews for five topic areas and individual protocols for 21 topic areas referring mainly to non-animal toxicity testing of chemical compounds.
