Ex Vivo – Lice
CIDP Preclinical laboratory has set-up protocols to evaluate in vitro the pediculicidal and lenticidal efficacy of cosmetic products. The study is performed on lice and nits collected from the head of healthy volunteers.
Using in vitro protocols developed in the laboratory, the viability and motility of lice collected in the head of healthy volunteers are controlled at regular intervals for a period of 24 hours.
Using in vitro protocols developed in the laboratory, nits’ development (such as eyespot development) and hatching of larval stages will be monitored at regular intervals for a period of at least 7 days in nits that were collected from hair of healthy volunteers with nits glued close to the scalp.
