Juvenile toxicology studies in minipigs

To support the use of formulations within the pediatric field, testing on juvenile animals are required.

Minipigs Toxicology Studies since 2007

We have a broad experience in various types of juvenile toxicology studies including oral bioavailability studies in juvenile minipigs, investigation of pharmacokinetic profile in lactating sows and juvenile minipigs after dosing of sows as well as dermal application of test item on juvenile minipigs. Further, we have a setup for juvenile minipig feeding studies, where test item is added in milk replacement to allow feeding of the juvenile animals from post-natal day 2.
