InvitroCue Ltd to develop novel assay to detect pancreatic toxicity


Bio-analytics company InvitroCue Ltd (ASX:IVQ) will leverage its technology in modelling multi-organ toxicity by developing a novel assay to detect pancreatic toxicity.

The assay is part of a strategic collaboration with Switzerland’s InSphero AG, the world’s leading provider of assay-ready 3D microtissues for more predictive drug discovery and development.

The pancreatic toxicity assay is being developed to accelerate preclinical drug development and assessment of potential pancreatic toxicity associated with drug metabolism.

This builds on a previous agreement between InSphero and InvitroCue on in-vitro cell-based hepatotoxicity assay.

InvitroCue has already introduced a suite of disease-specific drug screening services related to non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, leishmaniasis and malaria.

In May, InvitroCue entered the oncology testing market for drugs to provide data points in selected solid tumours.

The company will use 3D cell-based technology to culture patient derived cancer cells in its laboratories for testing against a panel of approved drugs and new drug candidates.

InvitroCue’s technology may create a new market for personalised drug testing to improve individual treatment outcomes in selected solid tumours.

The company had $2 million cash at the end of the March 2016 quarter.
