In Vivo DMPK



In Vivo DMPK Evaluation during Drug Discovery

Pharmacology Discovery Services has the experience and skills needed to bring you early stage pharmacokinetic (PK), oral bioavailability and blood-brain barrier (BBB) data to evaluate your new molecular entity.  PK and BBB studies are prerequisite for interpreting preclinical efficacy and toxicology results.  Using qualitative measurements of drug exposure, we can provide a solid interpretation of preclinical efficacy.  PK data can also help in species selection and design of preclinical toxicology studies.

We will work with you to understand the physicochemical properties of your test material to develop a dosing and sample collection strategy that will provide you with the most meaningful data. We can obtain blood and/or tissue (e.g. brain) samples following dose administration (IV, PO, IP, IM, SC, IN, and ICV, also short- or long-term continuous infusions) and both serial sampling for PK and parallel sampling for PK, BBB or combined PK-BBB are available. PK/PD studies can be combined using our broad portfolio of pharmacodynamics models.

PK/BBB dosing and sampling studies can be paired with standard or custom bioanalytical methods to provide a concentration versus time curves to provide a complete pharmacokinetic profile for your compound.
