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 2D cell culture models to perform preclinical ADME-Tox assays. While these models are useful, they are limited in their translatability to drug metabolism and toxicity in humans. Recently, in vitro 3D organoid models that more closely mimic human biological systems have shown promise in supporting ADME-Tox studies in drug discovery.
