“Organs-on-chips” to revolutionize drug development PDF Print E-mail
Written by S&T Media Service   
Monday, 16 June 2014 05:46

A “breathing”, “beating” chip the size of a small USB stick, may one day replace animals in testing the safety and efficacy of potential drugs and save at least a third of the time and half of the cost in drug development.

These “organs-on-chips” are currently being developed by USA’s National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences-National Institutes of Health (NCAT-NIH) in partnership with Food and Drug Administration and Defense Advanced Research Agency. This was revealed Dr. Danilo A. Tagle, NCAT’s associate director for special initiatives in a recent scientific symposium organized by the Philippine Genome Center (PGC).

Organs-on-chips are designed to mimic the mechanical and chemical function of organ systems (respiratory, circulatory, etc). In a lung-on-chip, for instance, human lung and blood vessel cells line each side of a flexible porous membrane that stretch and relax upon application of cyclic suction to mimic the breathing action of human lungs.
