In recent years, questions about the sustainability of the current drug discovery process have triggered a revival of interest in phenotypic drug discovery approaches. This trend has clearly been amplified by the emergence of multiple cell-based assay technologies enabling a higher degree of translatability between in vitro conditions and physio-pathological situations, including induced pluripotent stem cells, three-dimensional models, co-culture and organ-on-a-chip systems, complemented by advances in gene editing technologies. Progress in High-Content Screening technology has also contributed to the recent excitement for phenotypic drug discovery approaches, bringing image-capture and processing, and data-analysis, to a level of content and throughput fully compatible with large scale drug discovery efforts. Nevertheless, implementation of HCS in discovery projects must be carefully considered, to ensure optimal performance and the generation of relevant data to enable the discovery of first-in-class medicines.

A study to determine the safety of CSC/ HTS-based combination drug therapy in subjects who have GBM that has recurred or progressed following prior radiation therapy and TMZ.
The identification of selected parameters in newborn infants by various tests, examinations, or other procedures. Screening may be performed by clinical or laboratory measures. A screening test is designed to sort out healthy neonates (INFANT, NEWBORN) from those not well, but the screening test is not intended as a diagnostic device, rather instead as epidemiologic.
An order of GRAM-NEGATIVE OXYGENIC PHOTOSYNTHETIC BACTERIA containing CHLOROPHYLL, a and b, but lacking PHYCOBILISOMES (light-harvesting antennae). There are three genera: PROCHLORON; PROCHLOROCOCCUS; and PROCHLOROTHRIX. This order was thought to be the missing link between CYANOBACTERIA and plant CHLOROPLASTS, hence the name.
The process of finding chemicals for potential therapeutic use.
