Characterizing Adverse Effects on the Immune System


Contact Us

Immunotoxicology and immunology support for both large and small molecules

An integrated program with deep scientific and technical expertise at 5 global sites

High quality studies delivered on-time, affordably

Global know-how in immunotoxicology and immunology combined with state-of-the-art technology to help you address the many challenges of the immune system.

Experienced Navigation of Complicated Immune System

The immune system can be a challenging target. Many drugs – both small and large molecules – are designed to modulate aspects of the immune system or key inflammatory pathways. Whether you are looking to focus on the immune system or curtail an inappropriate autoimmune response, our experts help you efficiently navigate this complex biological (and regulatory) landscape.

Guidance for Unintended Consequences

Sometimes a molecule, which is not intended to target the immune system, can inadvertently alter immune functions. We work closely with you to isolate the adverse effects and get your development program back on track.

Standard or Custom Immunoassays With Multiple Uses

We integrate immunotoxicology and immunology expertise. This helps us find assays that can be useful as biomarkers to monitor pharmaceutical efficacy. Realize efficiencies with these analytes in both nonclinical and clinical studies as you move your molecule along the continuum.
