MD Biosciences to present new advances in pig translational models for pain

Posted by MD Biosciences on Apr 20, 2017 1:38:10 PM

 

 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.

MD Biosciences Announces Addition of Cancer Suite

Posted by MD Biosciences on Jan 28, 2016 4:28:59 PM

ST. PAUL, Minnesota - January 25, 2016 - MD Biosciences (mdbiosciences.com) today announced the addition of its suite of in vivo and in vitro cancer models to its family of preclinical contract research services. MD Biosciences' oncology research program specializes in murine solid tumors for subcutaneous and orthoptopic models (for example, advanced breast cancer and renal cancer) with a specific focus on the immune aspects of disease development and progression. The comprehensive services include both syngeneic and xenograft models with readouts for longitudinal tumor monitoring (for some models), longitudinal blood phenotyping (immune cell distribution, biomarkers, etc.), endtime-point primary/metastic tumor evaluation, tumor tissue-specific cellular analysis using intravascular staining (cells: epithelial, endothelial, immune, etc.), biomarker analysis (blood, tumor, tissue, spleen, lymph node, etc.) and histological grading and evaluation of tumor specific issue (H&E, IHC, etc.).

"Our onco-immunology research team is comprised of skilled scientists with deep-rooted expertise in a highly complex field," said Eddie Moradian, MD Biosciences CEO. "We at MD Biosciences are excited to bring our high level of expertise and our novel models to assist sponsors and partners in reaching their programs' developmental goals. This new suite of capabilities compliments our existing, best-in-class services in other disease areas.
