The use of impedance-based label-free technology applied to drug discovery is nowadays receiving more and more attention. Indeed, such a simple and noninvasive assay that interferes minimally with cell morphology and function allows one to perform kinetic measurements and to obtain information on proliferation, migration, cytotoxicity, and receptor-mediated(More)
Phospholipidosis (PLD) is a topic of concern in drug development because it may be associated with toxicological consequences. The aim of the study was to determine the best method to screen proprietary compounds with regard to their potential to induce PLD. Two in vitro approaches, a genomic method previously evaluated in our laboratory and a fluorescent(More)
A new antiepileptic synaptic vesicle 2a (SV2a) ligand drug candidate was tested in 4-week oral toxicity studies in rat and dog. Brown pigment inclusions were found in the liver of high-dose dogs. The morphology of the deposits and the accompanying liver changes (increased plasma liver enzymes, increased total hepatic porphyrin level, decreased liver(More)
A working party, comprising two animal welfare organisations and some 12 pharmaceutical companies in Europe, was established to minimise the use of the dog in safety testing. As first step, the participants defined the major objectives of preliminary dose-range finding/MTD toxicity studies in non-rodents, defined the principles and requirements for this(More)
The goal of this study was to compare two surgical methods, the left carotid (LC) and the abdominal aorta (AA), for mouse instrumentation with telemetry devices, to determine the best method for measuring cardiovascular (CV) parameters by radiotelemetry in freely moving mice. Surgery success rate, postsurgical recovery rate, clinical parameters, CV data(More)
The present study was undertaken to validate a battery of cytotoxicity assays performed in a multiplex format to screen pharmaceutical compounds at an early stage of drug development. Two experiments were performed on HepG2 cells and the parameters were measured in 96-well plates. Biological and technical triplicates were performed to evaluate the(More)
