Pain Research Forum Highlights AnaBios Human DRG Neurons Presentation at Pain and Migraine Therapeutics Summit

The Pain Research Forum highlighted AnaBios CEO Dr. Andre Ghetti's recent presentation at the 11th Annual Pain and Migraine Therapeutics Summit in San Diego, California. Dr. Ghetti discussed the importance of utilizing human DRG neurons early in the drug discovery process to accurately predict human responses to molecular compounds.From the article:The human DRG neurons, Ghetti said, have great predictive value for development of pharmaceutical agents. For example, one compound—an unnamed sodium channel blocker—showed promise in rodents, halting firing of action potentials in DRG neurons and reversing hypersensitivity in vivo. But the compound had no effect on human DRG neurons, even [...]

AnaBios to Present Adult Human Primary Cardiomyocyte Research on Safety Pharmacology Society Webinar

AnaBios Scientific Director Najah Abi-Gerges, PhD, will present "Adult Human Primary Cardiomyocyotes: An Integrative Translational Model for Cardiotoxicity Assessment" on Thursday, November 2, from 11am-12pm EDT. Drug-induced irregular heart beat (pro arrhythmia) and/or changes in contractility (inotropic liability) can limit the utility of potential novel therapeutics. Since abnormal ventricular repolarization can cause not only electrical disorders, but also affect the heart’s contractile function, the main motivation of this study was to develop a new model based on adult human primary cardiomyocytes to provide a preclinical tool for the simultaneous prediction of drug-induced inotropic and pro-arrhythmia risks. To facilitate the scalability [...]

AnaBios presents at 15th Annual Meeting of the Safety Pharmacology Society in Prague, Czech Republic

September 28 - October 1, 2015: AnaBios presents at 15th Annual Meeting of the Safety Pharmacology Society in Prague, Czech Republic.   The findings of collaborative work between AnaBios, AbbVie, Novartis and Roche were presented at the 15th Annual Meeting of the Safety Pharmacology Society in Prague, Czech Republic. The presentation summarizes the results obtained employing Phase-X® ex-vivo human-based model that uses ventricular trabeculae from donor hearts, combined with sharp-electrode continuous recordings of the membrane potential to provide a novel approach for assessing pro-arrhythmic risks. The use of adult human cardiac tissue removes the potential for discrepancies in pharmacological sensitivity due to cross-species [...]
