In vitro & in vivo Pharmacology Services

To gain profound and relevant preclinical data on efficacy and potency, in-depth knowledge of the corresponding disease is a key success factor. Pharmacelsus has a proven track record on conducting in vitro and in vivo studies on potency, selectivity and efficacy in several indication areas.

In vitro pharmocology assays

5α Reductase Inhibitors

  • Human recombinant isoenzymes type I and II

In vivo pharmocology models

Diabetes / Metabolic Syndrome Models

  • Induced Models:
    • STZ Mice/Rats
    • DIO Mice/Rat
  • Genetic Models:
    • ob/ob Mice
    • db/db Mice
    • Zucker/ZDF Rat


  • In vivo model
    (immunodeficient mice)
  • Principle:
    s.c. tumor xenograft model
  • General Readouts:
    Tumor incidence, tumor size, tumor growth inhibition, terminal tumor weight, Occurence of metastases (postmortal)

Leveraging our experience allows us to design, set-up and perform in vitro and in vivo pharmacology studies according to the specific requirements of your project.
