Preclinical Toxicology Studies to support your drug development


Preclinical toxicological studies are an essential step to demonstrate that a drug can go into clinical trial. Oncodesign Services is running, with the support of dedicated partners for the in-life phase, non-GLP and GLP studies to assess the safety of your medicine.


Why use toxicology studies in your preclinical programs ?

They provide essential data on the potential safety and toxicity of a drug candidate prior to First-In-Human (FIH) administration, such as:

  • What is the appropriate dose range (DRF: Dose Range Finding) to achieve therapeutic effects while minimizing toxicology?
  • What is the potential toxic effect of the drug candidate on the body? And what are the mechanisms responsible for observed toxic effects?
  • What is the risk-to-benefit ratio for aiding in decision-making?

Preclinical toxicology studies are conducted according to specific guidelines (EMA, FDA, ICH) and regulations (GLP).

The duration of a toxicology study can vary depending on the new therapeutic entity (NTE), the type of study and the animal species being used.

How can Oncodesign Services support you in your preclinical programs?

All along the drug discovery process, Oncodesign Services provides acute, subacute & chronic toxicity studies in rodent and non-rodent species, including PK, toxicokinetic, recovery period and metabolism (ADME)

Example of support services:

  • Development and GLP-compliant validation of analytical method for formulation
  • GLP-compliant Dose formulation analysis
  • Development and GLP-compliant validation of bioanalytical method (LC-MS/MS, qPCR, dPCR, ECLIA, ELISA)
  • GLP-compliant bioanalytical assays
  • Immunogenicity risk assessment (IRA)
  • In vivo toxicology
