The process of animal testing during clinical trials and drug development has often raised numerous ethical and medical concerns. Also, they are not very predictive of the human response. This has led to advancements in the field of “Organ on a Chip” technology which could one day replace animal testing. The future lies in these cell culture chips that simulate the activity and responses of entire organs, thus mimicking their behavior without the requirement of a host organism.
