New Robust 3D Microtissue Model May Better Screen IPF Therapies

Scientists have developed a new lab-grown three-dimension (3D) microtissue model that replicates the key features of the idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) microenvironment better than other cellular and animal models, and that enables more robust screening of potential therapies. When the model was generated using lung cells collected from IPF patients, it allowed researchers to assess responses to four experimental therapies and reflected the natural response variability between patients, highlighting its potential to be used in…
