Other efficacy models

Preclinical efficacy studies form the fundamental basis of research pharmacology and drug development.

In efficacy studies, the pharmacological effects of test compounds are investigated in laboratory animal models that have been developed to mimic the human disease. Such studies are key to predicting the success of treatment in humans with the disease.


Experimental set up and establishment of disease models

Innovative therapies often require flexible and client-tailored efficacy studies to demonstrate early proof of concept. Scantox offers experimental setup and establishment of disease models to meet specific sponsor requirements, focusing on pharmacological data collection and optimized animal welfare.

Scantox is a dedicated and highly qualified partner for preclinical efficacy studies. Our team is known for responsiveness and scientifically sound study designs, working in areas such as oncology, infection, inflammation, and diabetology, and dealing with rare diseases within the orphan drug indications.
