Significance and Use
4.1 The objective of this guide is to recommend a panel of biological tests that can be used in addition to the testing recommended in Practice F748. This guide is designed to detect neurotoxicity caused by medical devices that contact nervous tissue.
4.2 The testing recommendations should be considered for new materials, established materials with different manufacturing methods that could affect nervous tissue response, or materials used in new nervous tissue applications.
1.1 Medical devices may cause adverse effects on the structure and/or function of the nervous system. In this guide, these adverse effects are defined as neurotoxicity. This guide provides background information and recommendations on methods for neurotoxicity testing. This guide should be used with Practice F748, and may be helpful where neurotoxicity testing is needed to evaluate medical devices that contact nervous system tissue or cerebral spinal fluid (CSF).
