Service Overview

Nuvisan will support you with DMPK/ADME services throughout the discovery and development phases.

In vitro and (rapid turnover) in vivo studies to support decision making in medicinal chemistry and discovery pharmacology. Bioanalytical method development

Early Development 
Tailor-made “phase 0” in vitro and in vivo packages, i.e., in vitro metabolism, CYP interactions, absorption, distribution, and transport, PK/ADME in rodents and non-rodents. Contribution to regulatory documents (IB, IMPD, IND). Bioanalytical method development and validation.

ADME studies (radioactive and unlabeled) in vitro and in relevant rodent and non-rodent species (including NHP). In house radio- and stable isotope labeling. State-of-the-art radio analysis and metabolite identification. Regulatory drug-drug interaction studies (in vitro and in vivo in preclinical species) including assessment of clinical relevance. Consulting and program management by experienced pharmaceutical industry scientists.
