Abstract

Standardization of microscopic pathology nomenclature and diagnostic criteria, especially for rats and mice, has been under discussion for many years by pathologists in the profession of toxicologic pathology. In 2005, the Society of Toxicologic Pathology (STP) and European Society of Toxicologic Pathology (ESTP), along with Registry of Industrial Toxicology Animal-data (RITA), established a collaborative process to review, update, and harmonize existing nomenclature documents and databases. The British Society of Toxicologic Pathology (BSTP) and the Japanese Society of Toxicologic Pathology (JSTP) joined the project in 2006, making this a genuinely global initiative. The result of these discussions was the INHAND Proposal (International Harmonization of Nomenclature and Diagnostic Criteria for Lesions in Rats and Mice). A Global Editorial Steering Committee (GESC) manages the overall objectives of the project, and Working Groups (WG) formulate the terminology proposals for each organ system (Vahle et al, 2009). Both the GESC and the WGs are composed of experts from the North American, British and European and Japanese Societies of Toxicologic Pathology.
