 MD Biosciences will be presenting its newest advances in translational pig models for pain at this year's SMi Pain Therapeutics Conference to be held in London, UK on May 22-23. Translational models in pigs for the study of pain have become an indispensable tool in drug development. The skin structure of the pig, particularly with respect to its neuronal structure, shows a high degree of similarity to that of humans. This provides a platform in which new therapeutics can be tested to yield results which are highly predictive of human outcomes. MD Biosciences has continuously developed its models to approximate the human condition as closely as possible, bringing its unique capabilities to the drug development process. Please contact MD Biosciences or SMi Group Ltd for conference details.
