In this article, the present and future outlook for human iPSC-derived tissues is explored. Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) are differentiated cells that are reprogrammed into a pluripotent state, allowing a wide range of cell and tissue types to be derived from them.
Key findings include:
- iPSC technology is moving from a boutique phenomenon to industrialized cellular models.
- Increasing recognition by industry and regulatory bodies for detecting a variety of toxicities.
- Emerging utility for predicting cardio and neuro-related oncology adverse effects.
