Creative Animodel has a contract development team supporting biopharma companies in all phases of product development across all the therapeutic areas. We blend science with people and technology to help global clients to accelerate drug discovery and development across small and large molecule platforms. With over 10 years of specialized experience, our pharmacokinetics services are designed to provide fast-turnaround and low cost studies with clear and frequent clients communications.
Pharmacokinetics (PK) is the study of the time course of a drug within the body and incorporates the processes of absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion (ADME). It is the study of the spatial and temporal distribution of an administration drug. In general, pharmacokinetic parameters are derived from the measurement of drug concentrations in blood or plasma. Plasma is the traditionally sampled matrix due to convenience and the concentrations in the circulation will be in some form of equilibrium with the tissues of the body. However, drug molecules may be bound to a greater or lesser extent to the proteins present within the plasma; thus, free drug levels may be vastly different from those of total drug. Because of analytical difficulties (separation and sensitivity), it is usually the total drug that is measured and used in pharmacokinetic evaluation. Such measurements and analysis are adequate for understanding the drug within a single species in different situations since protein binding and resultant unbound fraction is approximately constant under these conditions.
Pharmacokinetics Studies at Creative Animodel
Creative Animodel provides sensitive, high throughput evaluation of drug concentration in a variety of matrices including serum, plasma, urine, and saliva. Our analytical and bioanalytical laboratories contain GLP-compliant systems and state-of-the-art equipment, including multiple LC/MS/MS systems as well as immunoassay technical platforms. Our scientists are experienced in supporting pharmacokinetics assessments in a variety of animal species including rodents, non-rodents, as well as non-human primates. We are well-versed with the factors that could influence the validity of the data during pharmacokinetics analysis, and take those complexities into account during method validation to ensure optimal results.
• Multiple animal species including non-human primates.
• Various administration routes (iv., po., ip., sc., im., etc.)
• Advanced facilities, technical platforms and optimized methods.
• Comprehensive reports (Cmax, tmax, t1/2, AUC0-t, AUCinf, CLtot, Vdss, BA/EA, etc)
• Customized services can be tailored to customers’ specific requirements.
