The Promise of in vitro 3D Organoid Models: Meeting the ADME-Tox Testing Needs of the Pharmaceutical Industry

Article

For many years, biologists have relied on in vitro 2-dimensional (2D) cell culture models to perform preclinical ADME-Tox assays. While these models are useful for informing aspects of drug discovery, such as cytotoxicity, they are limited in their translatability to drug metabolism and toxicity in humans. Recently, in vitro 3-dimensional (3D) organoid models that more closely mimic human biological systems show promise in supporting ADME-Tox studies in the early stages of the drug development process, compared to their 2D counterparts.
