Quantitative Systems Toxicology Modeling of Cisplatin Nephrotoxicity Using in vitro Assays of Proximal Tubule Epithelial Cells for Mechanistic Toxicity Pathways

Conference: SOT
Software: DILIsym®
Division: DILIsym Services


Cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity results in acute kidney injury (AKI) and is caused by various cellular mechanisms, including mitochondrial dysfunction, oxidative stress, and others.
• AKI mechanisms of cisplatin and several other nephrotoxic drugs remain incompletely understood.
• Quantitative system toxicology (QST) offers promise for better understanding of drug induced AKI through mechanistic representation of the underlying toxicity pathways.
• We developed a QST model of cisplatin induced AKI using in vitro assay data to characterize injury pathways.
