Human liver-chip for predictive toxicology

December 2022
Emulate Inc., Boston, USA
Organ-Chips could potentially help identify drug toxicities earlier, but there is limited research into how well they predict these effects compared to conventional models. In this study, 870 Liver-Chips were analysed to determine how well they predict drug-induced liver injury, a common cause of drug failure. The liver-chips predicted the effect on the liver of 27 known hepatotoxic and non-toxic drugs with a sensitivity of 87% and a specificity of 100%. The results of this study show how incorporating predictive Organ-Chips into drug development workflows could substantially improve drug discovery and development, allowing manufacturers to bring safer, more effective medicines to market in less time.
