New method of growing laboratory cells could lead to safer drug trials
Researchers from the University of Southern Denmark have discovered a method that they claim will lead to safer, more accurate laboratory testing of novel drugs on humans. While cells occurring normally in a person's body are capable of exchanging vital information with one another, cells isolated for research purposes lose their ability to communicate, the investigators explain. However, because of this, those laboratory cells believe that they are alone and thus behave differently than they would if they were aware that they were surrounded by other cells.
