cDNA microsomes) using fluorescent probes has been evaluated using 68 marketed drugs. In general lower IC50 values were obtained with Cypex bactosomes compared with Gentest cDNA microsomes. This could be due to use of higher concentration of protein and also the lower activity of Gentest cDNA microsomes. Notably, when compared with in vivo clinical drug-drug interactions (cDDIs) gathered from clinical studies reported in the scientific literature Cypex bactosome data was better at predicting in vivo cDDI. Consequently, from the data obtained in this comparative study, a fluorescence based assay using Cypex bactosomes is more suitable as a front-line screen for the prediction of potential downstream CYP450 driven cDDIs.
