the development process
The Development Process

Remember This!

  • Computer Models
  • Chemical Models
  • In-Vitro Models
  • In-Vivo Models
  • Human Models
the drug development process
The Drug Development Process

Is it safe?

Does it work?

Compound X

How much?

How often?

How should it be put

into the body?How long does it stay there?

Are the effects: short and long?

Does it leave the body? How?

Does the body change it? How?

Do other variables matter?

some animals for some research
Some Animals For Some Research
  • Reduce: Fewer Animals - Same Valid Results
      • Animal as it’s own control
      • Statistical analysis
      • Same animal for more than one study (necropsy)
  • Refine: Improve Procedures - Reduce Discomfort
      • Intrabladder catheter / regular urinary catheter
      • Vascular access port
  • Replace: Models Without Animals
      • Harvesting rabbit corneal cells
      • Bioreactor
iacuc s role
IACUC’s Role
  • Reduce study duplication
  • Reduce animal discomfort
  • Justify species/number selection
  • Assure veterinary care
