Bionic chip reveals how some antibiotics can harm kidneys

Breakthrough technology blends sensors and human tissue in a smart kidney chip, allowing scientists to find a previously unknown toxicity mechanism.

A group of Israeli researchers have discovered how a commonly prescribed group of antibiotics, aminoglycosides such as gentamicin, causes kidney damage in up to 25 percent of hospitalized patients.

The team was able to understand this mechanism by creating and experimenting with a bionic micro-kidney built from human kidney tissue embedded with ultra-thin electrooptical sensors.
