Abstract: In October 2006 the European Centre for the Validation of Alternative Methods (ECVAM) sponsored and hosted a 3 day Workshop to consider opportunities and challenges in the development of alternative methods for the identification and characterisation of chemical respiratory allergens. The proceedings, conclusions and recommendations of that Workshop were subsequently made available as an ECVAM Workshop Report, and were published as review paper. In April 2008 a second meeting was convened by ECVAM to consider what progress has been made against the recommendations deriving from the 2006 Workshop and publication of the report. This meeting had as a second objective consideration of whether new opportunities have emerged since 2006 for the identification and characterisation of chemical respiratory allergens. In addition, the scope of the meeting was broadened to include also an examination of new and emerging approaches that may be appropriate for the evaluation of the respiratory sensitising potential of proteins.
