In Vitro Safety Screening for Clinical Liabilities, New Life Science Webinar hosted by Xtalks

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) August 23, 2013

In vitro pharmacological profiling, testing compounds in select panels of assays like SafetyScreen, play an increasingly important role in reducing drug related safety attrition. In vitro screening identifies off-target activities and their adverse reaction potential by testing compounds for their activity in pharmacologically relevant targets like Serotonin 5H2B, hERG, and others and allows for early risk assessment of compounds. Failure to identify the adverse drug potential of a lead compound may have devastating consequences in later stages of clinical development.

There are several advantages of in vitro profiling; it allows optimizing compounds for specificity and selectivity enables cost effective testing of multiple compounds in parallel, uses species relevant targets and provides fast turnaround times. In vitro screening, when coupled with Pharmaco-Informatics tools can provide valuable information related to potential adverse events, therapeutic applications, repurposing and in vivo efficacy.

Join Dr. Gonzallo Castillo, Technical Director at Eurofins Panlabs, for an informative session. A live Q&A session will follow the main presentation.
