Potential Benefits of a Physiologically-Relevant Whole Cell Model to Assess CYP Inhibition with Complex Mixtures
Speaker: Amy L. Roe, PhD, DABT, Principal Toxicologist, Product Safety & Regulatory Affairs, The Procter and Gamble Company

Dr. Amy Roe will present results from a published study (Roe et. al., 2019 AIVT) to evaluate potential inhibition of CYP3A4/5 and CYP2C9 enzymatic activity by Boswellia serrata extract (BSE) using pooled human liver microsomes (PHLM) and a more physiologically-relevant sandwich-cultured human hepatocytes (SCHH) model. In the scientific literature, BSE has been shown to reduce the activity (55% to 65%) across major CYP450 enzymes, including CYP3A4/5 and CYP2C9, using baculovirus-infected insect cells. These reported results, contrasted with a seemingly history of safe use of BSE, led us to question the relevance of the PHLM model. We will show that potent CYP3A4/5 and CYP2C9 inhibition observed for BSE in microsomal systems was not observed in SCHH. SCHH are particularly useful for studying complex mixtures such as botanicals and are an effective model to evaluate BDI and DDI.
