Schering-Plough announces Dieter Lutticken Award recipient

7th September 2009

Schering-Plough has revealed the recipient of its Dieter Lutticken Award, an accolade established to recognise the efforts of those who research alternatives to animal testing.

For the 2008 period, the winner of the award is Dr Ivo Claassen of the Veterinary Institute in Lelystad, the Netherlands.

Mr Claassen has been allocated 20,000 euros (17,495 pounds), which was presented at the 7th World Congress on Alternatives and Animal Use in the Life Sciences in Rome.

His work includes the development of an in vitro potency test for the routine quality control of inactivated Newcastle Disease Virus vaccines, bypassing the use of chickens as test cases in the process.

Mr Claassen stated: “I am very happy and honoured it has now received wide recognition with this prestigious award.”

Last month, Schering-Plough received approval from the Food and Drug Administration for its SAPHRIS (asenapine) medicine, which is designed to manage schizophrenia.
