Metabolism of Eight Model Pharmaceutical Compounds in Rat and Human HepatoPac Versus Liver Microsomes and Suspension Hepatocyte Platforms
Julius O. Enoru, William DeMaio, Adiba Watanyar, Kenneth Draper, Amanda Moore & Okey Ukairo

This poster presents our comparative metabolite profiling analysis of eight model pharmaceutical compounds with various biotransformation reactions using a functionally stable model of primary hepatocytes [micropatterned co-cultures (MPCCs)] in parallel with the traditional liver microsomal and suspension hepatocyte systems.

Validation of a 3-Dimensional Human Liver Microtissue Model for Long-term Hepatotoxicity Studies
Brad Larson1, Stewart Hunt2, Timothy Moeller3, Diana Long4, and Peter Banks1

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are a class of drug commonly used as analgesics and antipyretics, as well as for management of rheumatological disorders. They are one of the most highly prescribed drug families around the world, and consequently, along with antimicrobial agents, are the most frequent causes of druginduced liver injury (DILI) (Bjornsson et al., 2010).
