During the last three decades, animal cell culturing hasbeen essential for biomedical research and biotechnologicalactivities in general. Along with this increasing importance,biosafety concerns have pointed to the risks of manipulatinganimal cell cultures for human health and the environment. Amaximal reduction of these risks necessitates a thorough riskassessment of the cell cultures used. It involves an evaluationof both the intrinsic properties of the cell culture, includingsubsequent properties acquired as a result of genetic modification,and the possibility that the cell culture may i…
