Preclinical
Research

Before testing a drug in people, researchers must find out whether it has the potential to cause serious harm, also called toxicity. The two types of preclinical research are: (Invitro – Invivo)

Our researchers use good laboratory practices (GLP), defined in medical product development regulations, for preclinical laboratory studies.

These regulations set the minimum basic requirements for:

(study conduct, personnel, facilities, equipment, written protocols, operating procedures, study reports and a system of quality assurance oversight for each study to help assure the safety

These studies provide detailed information on dosing and toxicity levels. After preclinical testing, researchers review their findings and decide whether the drug should be tested in people.
