Welcome to the ImmunoSafe° website - ImmunoSafe©
Immunotoxicology is the area of toxicology dedicated to the investigation and understanding of immunological safety, which is  a matter of growing concern. Indeed, regulatory bodies and agencies throughout the world increasingly require that the immunotoxic potential of medicines and biologics as well as chemicals of all kinds is evaluated preclinically and/or clinically.

Because the evaluation of immunological safety is still a complex and rapidly evolving field, expert advice is often necessary to address potential issues or causes for regulatory concern related to the variety of possible immunotoxic effects encompassing immunosuppression, immunostimulation, hypersensitivity ("allergy") and autoimmunity, which can all develop in treated or exposed human beings.
