wurde die Studie durch die Beiräte der Fach-gruppen " Zellkulturtechnologie " und " Medi-zinische Biotechnologie " der DECHEMA e. V., auf schweizerischer Seite vom nationalen Kompetenzzentrum TEDD (Tissue Engineering for Drug Development and Substance Testing) getragen.
Background Enormous efforts have been made to develop circulation systems for physiological nutrient supply and waste removal of in vitro cultured tissues. These developments are aiming for in vitro generation of organ equivalents such as liver, lymph nodes and lung or even multi-organ systems for substance testing, research on organ regenera-tion or… (More)
Background and novelty In recent decades, substantial progress to mimic structures and complex functions of human skin in the form of skin equivalents has been achieved. Different approaches to generate functional skin models were made possible by the use of improved bioreactor technologies and advanced tissue engineering. Although various forms of skin… (More)
Background Current in vitro and animal tests for drug development are failing to emulate the organ complexity of the human body and, therefore, to accurately predict drug toxicity. In this study, we present a self-contained, bior-eactor based human in vitro tissue culture test system aiming to support predictive substance testing at relevant throughput. We… (More)
