Toxicology

Drug toxicity, especially hepatotoxicity, liver toxicity and cardiotoxicity, is a key reason for withdrawal of approved drugs from the market. It can save both time and developmental costs to identify potential toxicity at an early stage in drug discovery. Our toxicology services provide an extensive characterization of potential compound liabilities due to cardiac safety, hepatotoxicity, genotoxicity, safety pharmacology, and more. Our in vitro toxicology testing services are designed in accordance with international guidelines. In the meanwhile, developing novel in vitro toxicology assays for profiling and screening applications using new approaches and technologies, is proving to be valuable for evaluating emerging in vitro toxicology endpoints.

Numerous data exist online that can assist in in silico chemical or drug safety assessment. Capturing a chemical's safety profiles or toxicity within databases has become a necessary part of research across many industrial sectors, especially pharmaceuticals. MedAI is dedicating to integrating in silico data resources relevant to toxicology suitability for modelling, read-across, or similarity searching.
