The next step is to hook this lung up to other chip-based organs et al. animals in a study by Thorneloe edema. The beneficial effects of GSK2193874 still need to be confirmed in humans, but were preliminary validated in in response to IL-2 and mechanical strain but also successfully predicts the activity of a new drug for pulmonary…

Gas Transfer in Cellularized Collagen-Membrane Gas Exchange Devices.

It is concluded that thinner membranes and longer gas exchange distances result in improved hemoglobin saturation and increases in pO2, however, in the design space tested, these effects are relatively small compared to the improvement in overall oxygen and carbon dioxide transfer by increasing the blood flow rate.

Using cultured endothelial cells to study endothelial barrier dysfunction: Challenges and opportunities.

Techniques to isolate organ-specific ECs, to define EC heterogeneity in its full complexity, and to culture patient-derived ECs from inducible pluripotent stem cells or endothelial progenitor cells are likely to advance the understanding of ARDS and lead to development of therapeutics.

Toxicological evaluation of airborne particulate matter. Are cell culture technologies ready to replace animal testing?

To which extent 3D cell culture and particularly the organ‐on‐chip technology may overcome these limitations and represent effective tools to improve airborne PM toxicity evaluations is examined.

The Journal of Toxicological Sciences

The results demonstrate that HPβCD has the potential to be used as a candidate for drug delivery vector development and signify a correlation between the in vitro cytotoxic effect and cholesterol binding of cyclodextrins.

Advances in the development and use of human tissue-based techniques for drug toxicity testing

Although human tissues are now beginning to be seen as playing an important role in evaluating the potential for toxicity of new drugs in the clinic, their importance deserves to be more widely recognised and their use in the identification of toxicity issues as early as possible in the drug development life cycle should be significantly increased.

Biomaterials and Culture Systems for Development of Organoid and Organ-on-a-Chip Models

This review focuses on advances in 3D culture systems over the past years to model fetal development, disease pathology and support drug discovery in vitro, with a specific focus on the enabling role of biomaterials.

Organs-on-Chips: How Microsystems Technology Can Transform the Drug Development Process

The drug development pipeline, once one of the most successful and lucrative commercial sectors in the United States, is now strained by a combination of factors: increased development costs, lengthy



Reconstituting Organ-Level Lung Functions on a Chip

Mechanically active “organ-on-a-chip” microdevices that reconstitute tissue-tissue interfaces critical to organ function may expand the capabilities of cell culture models and provide low-cost alternatives to animal and clinical studies for drug screening and toxicology applications.

Blockade of Hyaluronan Inhibits IL-2-Induced Vascular Leak Syndrome and Maintains Effectiveness of IL-2 Treatment for Metastatic Melanoma1

A novel means to prevent IL-2-induced VLS is reported by blocking endogenous HA with HA-specific binding peptide, Pep-1, a newly isolated peptide which specifically binds to soluble, cell-associated, and immobilized forms of HA.

Extravasation of intravascular fluid mediated by the systemic administration of recombinant interleukin 2.

The administration of IL 2 produces a dose-limiting VLS that may be mediated, directly or indirectly, by host lymphoid elements and was not observed in nude mice receiving IL 2.

Human gut-on-a-chip inhabited by microbial flora that experiences intestinal peristalsis-like motions and flow.

This gut-on-a-chip recapitulates multiple dynamic physical and functional features of human intestine that are critical for its function within a controlled microfluidic environment that is amenable for transport, absorption, and toxicity studies, and hence it should have great value for drug testing as well as development of novel intestinal disease models.

Microfluidic Endothelium for Studying the Intravascular Adhesion of Metastatic Breast Cancer Cells

It is suggested that targeting CXCL12-CXCR4 signaling in endothelium may limit metastases in breast and other cancers and highlight the unique capabilities of the microfluidic device to advance studies of the intravascular microenvironment in metastasis.

NK Cells and Polymorphonuclear Neutrophils Are Both Critical for IL-2-Induced Pulmonary Vascular Leak Syndrome1

A new mouse model of IL-2-induced pulmonary VLS is used to obtain a detailed analysis of the early events and late events that characterize this lung injury, and results indicate that both NK and PMN cells play a central role in the late events.

A micro cell culture analog (microCCA) with 3-D hydrogel culture of multiple cell lines to assess metabolism-dependent cytotoxicity of anti-cancer drugs.

Comparison of experimental results demonstrated that the microCCA was able to reproduce the metabolism of Tegafur to 5-FU in the liver and consequent death of cells by5-FU, while the cultures in a 96-well microtiter plate were unable to do so.

Excess Circulating Angiopoietin-2 May Contribute to Pulmonary Vascular Leak in Sepsis in Humans

A critical role is identified in disrupting normal pulmonary endothelial function in sepsis-associated lung injury and excess systemic Ang-2 provokes pulmonary leak and congestion in otherwise healthy adult mice.

Perfused multiwell plate for 3D liver tissue engineering.

A bioreactor is developed that fosters maintenance of 3D tissue cultures under constant perfusion and multiple bioreactors are integrated into an array in a multiwell plate format to capture the complexity of in vivo tissue and organ behaviors.
