Towards a Body-on-a-Chip: The Value of Multi-Organ MPS for Human-Relevant Drug Assessment
Microphysiological Systems (MPS), also known as organ-on-a-chip, generate human-relevant 3D cell culture models whose phenotypes and functions mimic individual in vivo organs. When therapeutics are added, these models can generate results that translate into clinical outcomes more reliably than standard in vitro techniques.
In the human body, however, no one tissue or organ operates in isolation. Could we achieve greater translation by interconnecting organ models? By linking gut and liver for example, can researchers better understand drug absorption and metabolism? Do reactive metabolites cause toxicity in different organs and at what doses? Do circulating immune cells promote inflammation and mediate toxicity?
Join our webinar to learn how single and multi-organ MPS can be incorporated into your drug discovery and development workflows and increase translation of pre-clinical assays.
