In Vivo Biology

The In Vivo Pharmacology & Biology department at Jubilant has state of the art infrastructure and the expertise to conduct PK-PD and efficacy studies in various disease models related to oncology, metabolic disorder, pain, inflammation and respiratory disease therapeutic areas.

Our state-of- the art animal facility for in vivo pharmacology houses nude mice, rodents and rabbits for immunocompromised strains. Animal studies for in vivo pharmacology are conducted under the guidance of Institutional Ethics Committee and are overseen by experts in each of the models and disease areas.

Pain Models and Biomarkers for In Vivo Pharmacology

Nociceptive Pain
