The majority of screening and predictive models do not reflect the physiology of the human intestinal tract since they show major limitations to include the processes that determine the oral bioavailability1,2. A major drawback of current intestinal models is the use of single cell lines and the static environment, which is in contrast with the dynamic processes in vivo2. Here we overcome these shortcomings by combining ex vivo models and organ on a chip technology.
