"Development of a cardiac hypertrophy iPSC-derived disease model"


Download the case study on development of an iPSC-derived cardiac hypertrophy disease model


Cardiovascular disease is a foremost cause of mortality worldwide, with an estimated 17.3 million deaths per year. A major obstacle for efficient drug discovery and development is the absence of physiologically relevant and predictive cell-based assays. Human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) hold great potential as disease models for cardiovascular diseases. Not only can they recapitulate physiological features of mature cardiomyocytes, they also retain a patient's genetic background and can be produced in the large quantities required for high throughput screening platforms.

In this case study, we describe how we developed an innovative high throughput drug efficacy screening application in a model of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, utilizing hiPSC-derived cardiomyocytes.
