o2h discovery has an in-depth expertise in performing standard bioavailability/tissue-distribution PK studies, acute/chronic toxicology studies as well as pathophysiologically relevant experimental models for multiple therapeutic indications.

The macroscopic observations can be corroborated with a range of different techniques including but not limited to histopathological analysis, estimation of haematological and/or biochemical parameters etc. Currently, the in-vivo experiments are performed only with rodents (e.g, mice, rats). Our in-vivo models are available on a fee-for-service basis as well as a part of an integrated biology project. We also have the capability to customise these models as per client requirement. In-vivo studies are done in conjunction with CROs with whom o2h has a preferred relationship for the past several years.

Examples of in vivo models include

  • Collagen-induced arthritis
  • Adjuvant-induced arthritis
  • DSS-induced colitis
  • TNBS-induced colitis
  • PMA-induced psoriasis/atopic dermatitis
  • IMQ-induced psoriasis/atopic dermatitis
  • Cytokine release assay
  • Single dose acute toxicity
  • Repeat dose toxicity study
  • Oral bioavailability study
