HemoShear to Present Translational Findings from its Vascular and Liver Human Relevant Systems
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., Feb. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- HemoShear LLC, a biotechnology research company and leading developer of human and animal cell-based systems for discovery and assessment of new drug compounds, will present three separate studies from its predictive human relevant systems at The Annual Society of Toxicology (SOT) meeting, being held in San Antonio, Texas, on March 10-14, 2013. SOT is the world's largest toxicology meeting and is attended by executives and scientists who are responsible for safety assessment of a wide range of drugs, chemicals and materials.
Each presentation provides evidence of HemoShear's ability to create physiologically accurate vascular or liver conditions that differentiate drug candidates and predict human response at in vivo-level drug doses.
