Advinus Carcinogenicity Testing

Carcinogenicity Testing

The objective of the carcinogenicity test is to observe test animals for a major portion of their life span for the development of neoplastic lesions during or after exposure to various doses of a test substance by an appropriate route of administration. The study is usually conducted using two species – rats and mice. The animals are dosed by oral, dermal or other parenteral routes based upon the expected type of human exposure.

Carcinogenicity studies using Transgenic rasH2 mice:

Recent concern on the part of US FDA on improving the efficiency of carcinogenicity has resulted in recommendation to conduct 26-week carcinogenicity studies in transgenic mice rasH2. Advinus is the only company in India who has conducted three carcinogenicity assays in Transgenic rasH2 mice.
