Liver Spheroids: A Major Step Towards Meaningful In Vitro Testing for Human Hepatotoxicity Potential

Article

The development of new in vitro models to replace in vivo testing has already proven quite successful for certain targets. Among these are models of the immune system and human skin, while in vitro cardiac arrhythmia models are poised to emerge in the near future. Despite this clear progress, an efficient model for liver organ toxicity testing still remains elusive.

Artificial Intelligence, Real Solutions: How AI Can Accelerate Drug Discovery

Article

The rate at which new drugs are discovered is in decline, and computer-aided drug design has not produced the radical change in the success of candidate drugs the pharma industry anticipated. Artificial intelligence (AI)-based approaches are the new hope for revolutionizing the drug discovery process. But are these, as computer-aided drug design was, an over-hyped time bomb waiting to be found out? Or is it truly a revolution on the cusp of realizing its promise?
