Summary

When developing a new medicine, determining whether or not it will be safe for patients to take remains a challenge, and adverse drug reactions (ADRs) remain a major issue for clinicians. Of particular concern is damage to vital organs such as the liver, kidney, cardiovascular and gastrointestinal systems. The TransQST project will gather together data (both new and existing) and develop tools that will make it easier to assess the safety profile of potential medicines. They will also work to add to our understanding of when results in animal tests can be reliably extrapolated to humans, and develop models to predict concentrations of medicines in tissues, an important element of safety assessments. Another project output will be improved methods to visualise and analyse complex datasets during decision making on drug safety.
