Patient-derived organoids as a relevant tool for preclinical IBD research and drug development
Chronic inflammation and epithelial barrier damage are two of the most important hallmarks of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). Current drug development efforts focus on epithelial targets and barrier integrity. Conventional 2D models such as Caco-2 cell cultures fail to fully capture the physiology of the intestinal barrier, and differ in the expression of patient-specific enzymes and transporters. Hence, a clinically relevant system that allows the investigation of epithelial pathologies and barrier integrity is essential for innovating novel therapeutic paradigms.
