The utility of an in vitro primary human cell based small intestinal 3D tissue (SMI) model as an investigational tool for drug induced GI toxicity was evaluated. A blinded study was performed using N=8 therapeutic compounds (5 problematic and 3 well-tolerated drugs in humans) for which dog and rat toxicity studies were not predictive of human outcome. MTT viability, tissue barrier integrity using transepithelial electrical resistance (TEER) measurements and histology were used as end points. Results showed that the SMI tissue detected drug-induced reduction in TEER in 5/5 of the problematic drugs at concentrations within or below 30x clinical Cmax.  Importantly, the SMI system showed no effect within 1,000x clinical exposure levels for the three well-tolerated drugs. Overall, the use of TEER and histology as endpoints make the SMI tissue a sensitive predictive tool to assess drug-induced GI toxicity.  The use of the SMI tissues for GI toxicity testing is cost effective and reduces animal use.
