Dual Detection of Functional and Structural Cardiotoxicity

Cardiotoxic drugs can display acute alteration in the mechanical function of the myocardium (functional changes) or morphological damage to cardiomyocytes and/or loss of viability (structural changes).   

In this poster, we focus on:

  • the detection of functional cardiomyocyte changes through monitoring of calcium transients using human iPSC-derived cardiomyocytes
  • the analysis of structural morphology using high content imaging (calcium homeostasis and mitochondrial function) as well as cellular ATP in human iPSC-derived cardiomyocytes
  • the presentation of a strategy for understanding cardiotoxicity risk for novel compounds enabling in vitro to in vivo translation at an early stage in preclinical screening.
