IC50 stands for half maximal inhibitory concentration. This is a measurement that represents the half way point in which a compound of interest produces complete inhibition of a biological or biochemical function. This information is derived based on pharmacological data in reference to a dose-response curve. As the dosage of an inhibitory compound is increased, the biological function decreases respectively. The point at which the concentration of the inhibitor has inhibited 50% of the biological activity is referred to as the IC50.
During the development of IND applications, in vitro and in vivo toxicology testing studies are important to determine the threshold inhibition of biological functions and effects on metabolism. In an effort to develop new pharmaceutical drugs and therapeutic treatments, cancer cell lines are used as in vitro models to test the candidate drugs.
