Application notes Human liver microphysiological system for predicting the drug-induced liver toxicity of differing drug modalities Novac et al The liver is one of the organs most susceptible to drug toxicity and drug-induced liver injury (DILI). With more than 750 FDA-approved drugs known to have a degree of DILI risk, better preclinical models are required to de-risk new therapeutics earlier in the drug development process. We assess whether a Liver MPS model could be used to understand the detailed mechanistic aspects of liver toxicity. Application notes Microphysiological system for studying fatty liver disease and its impact on drug-induced liver injury Kostrzewski et al As a result of the increased prevalence of diabetes, obesity, and metabolic syndrome, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is now the most common chronic liver disease in developed countries. Using better in vitro models to fast-track therapeutic development but also accurately assess DILI risk in NASH patients ahead of the clinic is critical. Here, we show the potential of an in vitro 3D NASH model to accurately identify any DILI-associated risks. Application notes Improved prediction of oral bioavailability using a gut-liver microphysiological system Abbas, Kostrzewski & Hughes Central to the development of new drugs is an understanding of their pharmacokinetic properties, in particular their bioavailability. Here, we demonstrate the potential of a true 2-organ gut-liver MPS to better predict human bioavailability and improve in vitro to in vivo correlation. Application notes Drug metabolism in a gut-liver microphysiological system Abbas, Kostrzewski & Hughes Studies investigating the efficacy and safety of candidate drugs use a variety of animal models to translate research from the bench to clinical trials and then to the clinic. Here, we demonstrate the potential of multi-organ MPS models for improved predictions of in vivo drug absorption and hepatic clearance rates. Application notes Pharmacokinetic profiles revisited in 3D microfluidic tumour models Petreus et al The efficacy or toxicity of a drug is dependent on the concentration at the target. Current preclinical models mainly rely on in vivo animal studies which often lack translatability to the human. Here, we demonstrate the potential of a new in vitro MPS approach to better predict human PK and improve in vitro to in vivo translational relevance. Application notes Predicting human drug permeability with a gut microphysiological system Bray et al Preclinical drug absorption studies are a key step when developing when therapeutics as they determine how much of orally-administered drug reaches the systemic circulation. Here, we show how we developed and characterized a gut MPS closely aligned to the human small intestine, using the PhysioMimix® Single-Organ system, and demonstrated its utility to predict drug permeability.
