Increased availability of on-chip hepatic tissues to maintain metabolic activity and simplicity of this model are propelling the growth of the Organs on Chips Market. Organs on-chip is a microfluidic device linked with living human cells for disease modeling, personalized medicine, and drug development purpose. These benefits are responsible for the fastest growth of the market in the upcoming years. In addition, multiple players are majorly focusing on the development of an organ-on-a-chip platform technique. For instance, Javelin Biotech, a drug discovery, and development company, and Pfizer, an American multinational pharmaceutical and biotechnology corporation, provided a three-year development of a platform to evaluate absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion (ADME) properties of small molecules on an organ-on-a-chip platform.
The COVID-19 outbreak has affected various industries worldwide. Similarly, people with lung-related issues are majorly affected by this pandemic. For instance, World Health Organization provided the Global Tuberculosis Report 2020. According to this report, over 10.0 million new cases of TB disease are observed in 2019 and around 1.2 million deaths have been occurred due to TB, globally. With this regard, various research and development activities have been carried out for treating infection or lung-related diseases. Recently, researchers in Wyss Institute, a cross-disciplinary research institute at Harvard University, announced the use of the human airway organ chips in the COVID-19 model and it can also be used to boost the immune response toward the same.
