Dried blood spot (DBS) sampling is gaining momentum as an alternative to plasma in support of drug discovery and development. DBS provides significant ethical benefits with reduced animal usage, using the 3Rs principle (animal reduction, refinement, and replacement), and higher data quality in safety assessment.

Learning Objectives:
Discuss the backgrounds of dried blood spot (DBS) and the 3Rs principle (animal reduction, refinement and replacement)
Describe DBS nonclinical and clinical benefits
Evaluate the DBS impact on drug discovery and development.
