One of the main goals of in vitro species comparison studies is to assess whether there is adequate coverage from the preclinical species to humans with respect to disproportional and/or unique human metabolites. Also important is to accurately predict major human metabolite profile in vivo. Traditionally, this is performed with subcellular fractions and/or suspended hepatocytes; however, these short-term in vitro systems do not usually provide multi-generation metabolites.[1, 2, 3, 4] In this study, we incubated selected compounds of diverse chemical structures (linezolid, ziprasidone, and diclofenac, Figure 1) that were subjected to a wide range of biotransformation pathways with long-term hepatocyte co-cultures model over an extended time period, and mined the metabolite information from the mass spectra generated by an UHPLC-QTOF-MS system through non-targeted MS/MSALL with SWATH acquisition to compare the metabolite profiles across species and to the major metabolite profile found in humans in vivo.

Human iPSC-derived cardiomyocytes: A translational model to predict drug-induced cardiac arrhythmias and long-term toxicityPoster
The results shown here imply that iPSC-derived Cor.4U human cardioymocytes are a translational in vitro cell model for the prediction of clinically relevant drug-induced cardiac arrhythmias and long-term toxicity.READ MORE
