Testing cytoxixity on healthy human cells - (Apr/13/2011 )


I pretend to stablish that a new drug product is not toxic to healthy cells. Could anyone advise me on what type of cells are the best to try on, or if I should try a comprehensive variety of them?

Thank you.


Think about the biological relevance... which cells is it targetting, and how is it getting to the cells in the body?


Rya, i faced the same thing and answer that came into my mind was same as "bob1" answered..
you need to look what you are targeting i.e. the cell type and its application, i hope you understand,
if you need any further help you can write an email or find me on twitter as @adeelbutt88
