Drugs are can be metabolised via the liver, but how do scientists determine how and what is responsible for this inside of the liver. The following video will take you through the set-up, procedure and analysis of the cryopreserved suspension hepatocyte assay
Plasma protein binding is one way of determining how much of your chosen drug is free, unbound from proteins, to cause its therapeutic response. In this video, you will be taken through how to perform the plasma protein binding assay in the lab.
A compound that is rapidly metabolised may never produce sufficient exposure to have a therapeutic effect, a slowly metabolised compound could remain in the body too long, leading to adverse effects. Therefore a prediction of clearance is incredibly useful component of your compound profile.
This short video will go through how to perform a microsomal intrinsic clearance experiment. This includes the set-up and analysis of the experiment.
