Novel insights into Pyrrolizidine Alkaloid Toxicity and Implications for Risk Assessment



  Dear colleagues,
We all hope that the COVID situation will further stabilize on a more acceptable level allowing more physical encounters. However, due the unclear situation over the last months, the Society for Medicinal Plant and Natural Product Research (GA) together with the chairs of the symposium has decided to hold this year's workshop as an on-line event again. The workshop is aimed at providing a platform for scientific exchange of information between researchers, industry and risk managers, in particular among our members, on exciting new results and views related to the occurrence of pyrrolizidine alkaloids in herbal medicine, consumer products, food and feed. The program will cover relevant topics including analytical methods, occurrence, toxicology, risk assessment and regulation.
It is our pleasure to invite you on behalf of the GA and the Workshop’s Scientific Program Committee to the 3rd International Workshop on Pyrrolizidine Alkaloids, entitled 'Plant toxins in botanical drugs, food and feed - from basic science to a safe regulatory framework' to be held as e-symposium on September 28 and 29, 2022. For the first time, a separate session will be dedicated to alkenylbenzenes, another family of plant constituents currently being under intense discussion.
The speakers will give their presentations on-line providing the participants the opportunity to submit their comments and questions on-line.
Abstracts will be available for all presentations and speakers will be invited to contribute to a consensus paper to be published after the workshop.
Again, we were able to gather a faculty of international scientists renowned for their work on all relevant scientific aspects of pyrrolizidine alkaloid toxicity and risk assessment. We trust that all participants will benefit from attending the workshop and look forward to your registration. Please find all program details and information on registration in the attached files - special benefits are available for GA-members.
