Understand drug and chemical movement
Dynamic Multiple Organ Testing provides a novel way for scientists to evaluate drug or chemical movement from one organ to another, study Pharmacokinetic/Pharmacodynamic effects, and understand communication between organ compartments via a semi-permeable membrane. In this meso-scale model, there is no net change in fluid between compartments and critical information on compound absorption, metabolism, and toxicity can be monitored.
How It Works
IONTOX’s patented Human Dynamic Multiple Organ Plate (HuDMOPTM) used for the company’s Dynamic Multiple Organ Testing was designed to understand how a new drug candidate will impact systemic organ function in human beings in vitro. This next generation in vitro test incorporates a multiple organ platform with simulated blood flow necessary for evaluating systemic toxicity. In this system a simple (two organ) may be chosen or more complex multiple organ models can be developed.
The figure to the right, represents a physiologically based pharmacokinetic model for nicotine in a lung-liver setup. The three display the simulated movement of nicotine in the lung basolateral compartment, simulated blood, and delivery to the liver compartment (solid red line). The data points represent the actual collected data.
