In the pharmaceutical industry, improving the early detection of drug-induced hepatotoxicity is essential as it is one of the most important reasons for attrition of candidate drugs during the later stages of drug development. The first objective of this study was to better characterize different cellular models (i.e., HepG2, HepaRG cells, and fresh primary(More)
Phospholipidosis (PLD) is characterized by an intracellular accumulation of phospholipids in lysosomes and the concurrent development of concentric lamellar bodies. Recently, H. Sawada et al. (2005, Toxicol. Sci. 83, 282-292) identified 17 genes as potential biomarkers of PLD in HepG2 cells. The present study was undertaken to determine if this set of genes(More)
The use of label-free technologies based on electrical impedance is becoming more and more popular in drug discovery. Indeed, such a methodology allows the continuous monitoring of diverse cellular processes, including proliferation, migration, cytotoxicity and receptor-mediated signaling. The objective of the present study was to further assess the(More)
