Study Plan of the first 90-day feeding trial published.
A draft Study Plan regarding the 90-day feeding trial with MON810 was intensively discussed throughout the stakeholder workshop in Vienna in December 2012. Subsequent revisions were based on comments received throughout the workshop and in writing thereafter.
A detailed list of oral and written comments can be found in the Consultation Report.
In order to allow GRACE partners i) to review the Study Plan in light of the received comments and ii) to organize the testing for additional analytes in diet analysis as suggested in the comments, the actual start of the feeding trial was postponed until April 2013 (date of signature: 22/03/2013; date of trial start: 02/04/2013).
As announced in the December 2012 consultation the Study Plan of the first 90-day feeding trial with MON810 is presented herewith in three different versions:
- Version 1: signed version;
- Version 2: version 1 showing editorial and clarifying changes in the correction mode;
- Version 3: version 2 as plain text.
Deviations of the trial performance from the Study Plan will be reported at the GRACE webpage after the reception of the Study Report.
Further Study Plans on other GRACE feeding trials will be made available via the GRACE web page by following the same transparent and retraceable documentation procedure.
Improving the availability of scientific information on GM plants
The database (currently under development) will contain quality assessed studies and conclusions on the health effects, socio-economic consequences and environmental impacts of GM plants.
