Disease Model Development

Tergus has extensive therapeutic area expertise and can help you design effective surrogate models or disease models that will help ascertain a formulation’s safety and efficacy early in the research process which will avoid costly issues later. Depending on the route of administration, the dosage form and target disease, we can offer our expertise or can design and even carry out studies with a CRO. Our in-house penetration models and skin biology capabilities allow us to be a single destination for clients, smoothing the path to commercialization.

When repositioning or repurposing a drug or simply changing the dosage form or vehicle, we can advise you with the most suitable disease or Proof-of-Concept animal/in vivo models. Tergus has alliances and working relationships with CROs that can speed the process.

We can take a formulation developed at Tergus or your developed formulations and design required Proof-of-Concept or animal studies to confirm the Target Product Profile of your formulation. We can handle projects starting with API only all the way through to dossier. Consultative services are available to advise on designing an effective study profile.
