Genotoxicity of doxorubicin in F344 rats by combining the comet assay, flow-cytometric peripheral blood micronucleus test, and pathway-focused gene expression profiling. Animal models of human disease: zebrafish swim into view. Zebrafish embryos exhibit unique characteristics, including ease of maintenance and drug administration, short reproductive cycle, and transparency that permits visual assessment of developing cells and organs. 95. A complementary model has been developed that exposes larvae to toxicants at a later time point during development where body patterning has already been established. 37. Collectively, these characteristics have made Danio rerio increasingly popular to test cardiotoxicity and cardiovascular developmental effects after drug administration as doxorubicin. In contrast, has been reported the larva as a promising tool capable of distinguishing between hepatotoxic and non-hepatotoxic chemical analogues, implying that it may be applied as a screening model for DILI[102]. 72. Rocke J, Lees J, Packham I, Chico T. The zebrafish as a novel tool for cardiovascular drug discovery. In the process of drug discovery, one of the main concerns is to evaluate drug hepatotoxicity, which is assessed using preclinical cell culture, animal models and clinical trials. Candiracci M. Zebrafish as screening model for detecting toxicity and drugs efficacy. Devaux A, Pesonen M, Monod G. Alkaline comet assay in rainbow trout hepatocytes. The transparency of the larval zebrafish, and the genetic and physiological similarity of its digestive system to that of mammals make it a promising system in which to address questions of energy homeostasis relevant to human health. 65. Tacar O, Sriamornsak P, Dass CR. For instance, rodents can be insensitive to compounds’ cardiotoxicity, particularly when the endpoint measurement is left ventricular contractile function[25]. The zebrafish has contributed to obtain measurements as action potential trough voltage mapping, to determine cells coupling[20], and this fact together with calcium signaling, are important for cardiomyocyte proliferation and differentiation[21]. In this sense, despite higher animals have been for many year models of excellence used to evaluate drugs toxicity, the zebrafish presents itself as a reliable vertebrate model to determine, developmental toxicity, general toxicity and to perform an initial drug screening (Caballero and Candiracci, 2018), their use for toxicity assessment of pharmaceutical compounds has been greatly increased … The zebrafish model is a bridge between in vitro assays and mammalian in vivo studies. 77. Higher doxorubicin doses had lethal effects, whereas lower concentrations resulted in sub-lethal effects and malformations, as well as changes in the heart rate[52]. These results suggested that the addition of different PGRs during in vitro culture could prominently affect callus and secondary metabolite production and can further be manipulated as a sustainable method for the production of a natural and environmentally friendly pesticide.

Farghali H, Kgalalelo Kemelo M, Wojnarová L, Kutinová Canová N. In vitro and in vivo experimental hepatotoxic models in liver research: applications to the assessment of potential hepatoprotective drugs. Zebrafish therefore, provides a sound basis for the risk assessment of drug administration in humans. The findings can be analyzed with respect to the various prescription and nonprescription medications and dietary supplements under suspicion to provide a complete interpretation of the findings. On the other hand, in vitro tests used to assess biosafety lack the potency and the translational attributes of a whole animal. The main concern was that drug-induced teratogenicity (developmental toxicity) and/or mortality could mask possible organ-toxicities appearing later in development[103]. Schaeck M, Van den Broeck W, Hermans K, Decostere A. The increasing use of zebrafish embryos as an alternative model for toxicological and pharmacological studies necessitates a better understanding of xenobiotic biotransformation in this species. 17. Faßbender C, Braunbeck T. Assessment of genotoxicity in gonads, liver and gills of zebrafish (Danio rerio) by use of the comet assay and micronucleus test after in vivo exposure to methyl methanesulfonate. The zebrafish appears as a fast model to study de novo mutations and genetic diseases. Editorial Process Zebrafish were proposed as an alternative to mammalian models to assess the efficacy and toxicity of antileukemic drugs. 18. The developing zebrafish is a well-established model system for studies of energy metabolism, and is amenable to genetic, physiological, and biochemical approaches. Therefore, we discuss here the role of sirtuin 1 modulation in hepatoprotection. The availability of specific transgenic lines labeling the liver, such as fabp10:RFP, allows liver damage visualization after the treatment.

It can be assessed by advancing conventional echocardiography with speckle-tracking analyses and changes in cardiac performance, and enables highly sensitive assessment of regional myocardial motion and deformation in high spatio-temporal resolution[34]. Those events are linked to a higher risk of torsade de pointes (TdP) being a very complex process to accurately predict its scale. Adv Neurol 2005;95:71-102. In silico prediction of drug-induced liver injury based on adverse drug reaction reports. (2019) A zebrafish drug screening platform boosts the discovery of novel therapeutics for spinal cord injury in mammals. Adult zebrafish produced the two major human metabolites of DIC and DXM. All rights reserved. We describe new high throughput methodologies for larval husbandry and imaging, as well as a novel fluorimetry platform that allows rapid, serial quantitation of both drug efficacy and toxicity. Cardio-oncology/onco-cardiology. This may be due to rodents’ ability to compensate loss of myocytes by recruiting alternative mechanisms. Mutations affecting the formation and function of the cardiovascular system in the zebrafish embryo. 33. New methodologies of genome editing as CRISPR/Cas9; ZFN and TALEN make it a suitable model … In zebrafish larvae, an in vivo toxicology evaluation can be reached in a week; the shorter time frame required performing comparable mammalian assays. FGF2 prevents sunitinib-induced cardiotoxicity in zebrafish and cardiomyoblast H9c2 cells. Cardiovascular diseases are a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in most developed countries of the world. DCM syndrome has been studied with two particular mutant zebrafish lines: tnnt2 and laminin α-4 integrin linked kinase. In the past decades, the type of chemicals has gradually increased all over the world, and many of these chemicals may have a potentially toxic effect on human health. It Reduces, by up to a third, the number of animals required to assess toxicity in those organs. Peer D, Karp JM, Omid SH, Farokhzad C, Margalit R, Langer R. Nanocarriers as an emerging platform for cancer therapy. 74. Rennekamp AJ, Peterson RT. In the past two decades, our understanding of disease biology and drug toxicity has grown significantly owing to thousands of studies on this tiny vertebrate. In the present study, cytotoxic as well as melanogenic effects of FLA and FLB on cellular melanin content and tyrosinase activity were evaluated in α-MSH-induced B16/F10 cells. As a result of this fact, to develop new in vivo and in vitro models for efficacy and safety testing is needed. 78. Moreover, we reported that D-GalN/LPS down-regulates sirtuin 1 in rat liver. On the other hand, adult zebrafish can exhibit the amazing regenerative heart muscle capacity, while adult mammalian hearts lack this potential. Additionally, despite the identification of many fatty acid and lipid transport proteins expressed by vertebrates, the cell biological processes that mediate the transport of dietary lipids from the intestinal lumen to the interior of enterocytes remain to be elucidated. Earlier zebrafish have been used for evaluating the toxicity of agrochemical agents[3] but more recently, their use for toxicity assessment of pharmaceutical compounds has been greatly increased[4].
