The Predictive Nature of High-Throughput Toxicity Screening Using a Human Hepatocyte Cell Line

Drug discovery has become an industrialized process in which vast libraries of compounds are screened for activity against a chosen target. The wealth of active compounds that emerge from these primary screens has created a bottleneck in drug development. First-round hits do not often meet the safety and efficacy criteria required for human therapeutics, so sequential rounds of optimization are required before a product can be administered to humans. Optimization requires assays that test Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, Elimination and Toxicity. In this paper we demonstrate the utility of high-throughput testing in a human liver cell line. If the technologies and reagents presented in this article had been available earlier, ADME/Tox screening could have prevented deaths and costly drug recalls by two major pharmaceutical companies.
