GenoMembrane announces collaboration with DefiniGEN to further develop iPS-derived intestinal organoids for drug absorption and transportation assay models
GenoMembrane Co. Ltd., the world leader in drug transporter production, announces the business collaboration with DefiniGEN, a Cambridge-based company who is specializes in human iPSC differentiation and disease modelling using CRISPR gene editing technology. DefiniGEN’s iPS-derived intestinal organoids can provide a unique in vitro system to model the human intestine. The organoids can be applied to various applications such as drug absorption, metabolism, and induction of CYP enzymes/transporters, as well as the modelling of infectious disease. GenoMembrane and DefiniGEN will co-develop ready-to-use intestinal absorption and transportation models to be evaluated by pharmaceutical companies as these next-generation iPS organoid products will help to improve the efficiency and economics of drug development to be the next innovative model for drug toxicity studies.
Mr. Kazutaka Muraguchi, CEO, GenoMembrane commented, “Collaboration with DefiniGEN will create innovative in vitro tools useful for drug development in pharmaceuticals as iPS cell can provide stable lots of differentiated human intestinal cell with same characteristics. We are very excited as this invention will be the blend of both companies’ technologies.”
Dr. Marcus Yeo, CEO, DefiniGEN commented, “These next-generation iPS-derived intestinal organoids will enable ADMET studies to be undertaken in a physiologically relevant environment to improve the predictive power of preclinical safety assessments. We look forward to partnering with GenoMembrane on this project and developing an innovative model for drug toxicity studies.”
