Microfabricated Device Developed at Mass General Allows Evaluation of the Efficacy, Toxicity of Drugs Metabolized Through the Liver

A team of researchers from the Mass General Center for Engineering in Medicine (CEM) has developed a new microfabricated device that simplifies the process of testing so-called “pro-drugs” for toxic side effects. A pro-drug is one that is administered in an inactive form and then transformed into an active drug via metabolism in the liver. […]
