Association of Inhalation Toxicologists (AIT) Annual Meeting

The Association of Inhalation Toxicologists (AIT) conference will take place during October 2018 in The Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA bringing together many of the world’s leading experts in the field of inhalation from a variety of backgrounds including respiratory medicine, CROs, the pharmaceutical, agrochemical, environmental and chemicals industries, regulatory authorities, academia, manufacturing and technology companies. 

This year they will provide an exciting scientific agenda revolving around the similarities and differences in inhalation toxicology between the environmental, pharmaceutical, agrochemical and chemical industries.

The AIT was founded in 1981 and is now a premier international association for practicing inhalation toxicologists and those with interest in inhaled drug development. The aim of the Association is to promote open discussion, exchange of ideas and the presentation of high quality scientific research in the field of inhalation toxicology at our annual conference.

Inhalation Products Designed by Respiratory Experts

 Stackable Inhalation Tower
The DSI Buxco inhalation exposure system is designed with the ease-of-use desired by researchers new to inhalation exposure, yet providing the performance and flexibility required by the inhalation exposure expert. Unique to DSI is the ability to perform accurate real-time respiration monitoring during exposure, critical for animal welfare and determining accurate deposition levels. With a high degree of port-to-port uniformity, this high efficiency system provides exceptional protocol repeatability, translating into high yield exposure studies. The inhalation tower utilizes an expandable yet compact, “flow-past” design, eliminating rebreathing concerns. Supported species include mice, rats, guinea pigs and ferrets. A stackable tower design for 1 to 6 levels and up to 42 subjects. 

Single Subject Inhalation Exposure
DSI’s Buxco Single Site Exposure Station is a single port nose-only exposure device.

Smoke Generator
DSI’s Buxco Smoke Generator is completely automated and requires no on-site operator. Simply load the cigarettes, press “Start,” and the system will run unattended. It captures direct and indirect smoke and delivers it to mass dosing chambers or individual exposure tubes. 


FinePointe Systems f
or Respiratory Studies

Whole Body Plethysmography 
When conscious, unrestrained approaches are desired, FinePointe whole body plethysmography allows for respiratory endpoints to be obtained. With the use of a bias flow supply, longer data collection periods can be obtained; allowing for evaluation of compounds that might have an effect beyond 4-6 hours post dose. 


Head-Out Plethysmography
Using Allay restraints, animals are comfortably and properly secured in plethysmographs without compromising the thorax to obtain consistent and
reliable direct flow measurements.

Resistance and Compliance
FinePointe resistance and compliance hardware helps researchers measure an animal’s airflow and lung pressure. This anesthetized approach allows for direct measurement pulmonary function as a follow up study to the core
battery requirements.


Non-Invasive Airway Mechanics Station

Conscious follow up studies for safety pharmacology and longitudinal toxicology studies alike can take advantage of the FinePointe non-invasive airway mechanics station. Using specially designed Allay restraint and double chamber plethysmography, nasal and thoracic flow can be monitored simultaneously to derived specific airway resistance.

About DSI Events

Data Sciences International (DSI) is involved in over 60 events every year. These include scientific meetings such as industry trade shows, courses and seminars, workshops, as well as educational user groups and symposia all over the world.

DSI supported educational events are scientific meetings organized in cooperation with a local institution or society, pharmaceutical company, university, or local telemetry user group. Educational event meetings serve as an educational forum in which researchers can freely share current scientific information with their peers, students, and other interested scientists.

Common to the general theme of the meetings is the data collected through physiological monitoring of freely moving conscious laboratory animals made possible through the use of fully implantable telemetry technology.

Presentations and posters on the latest methods employed by the presenting researchers enable those attending to benefit from the as yet unpublished work of peers. Presentations can be on a wide range of related research topics including surgical implantation methods, data analysis methods, treatment effects of new pharmaceutical compounds, new animal models, behavioral and physiological interactions, basic research on physiological systems, and numerous other whole animal chronic monitoring research topics.

Meetings are held in classroom style with ample time allowed for questions and discussion among the participants. Typical audience sizes run from 40 to 120.
