Drug Safety Evaluation Basic Information

Drug Safety Evaluation Basic Information

Medicilon has experienced teams who are experts in drug safety evaluation and can promise high-quality data and fast turnaround times to support various drug safety evaluation. Our toxicology research is carried out using different animals, from dose design, experimental research to histological and pathological research (including clinical detection). The research can be carried out according to non-GLP or GLP standards. Our research platform has been rated as Shanghai R&D Public Service Platform.
Medicilon diamond icon.pngSino-foreign joint venture
  • In 2008, Shanghai Medicilon Inc. and MPI Research (an American CRO specializing in non-clinical drug safety evaluation services) established a joint venture - Medicilon Preclinical Research. As part of the joint venture, MPI provided the American GLP system and standard operation procedures for research to Medicilon Preclinical Research. Scientists from MPI provided training sessions for Medicilon Preclinical Research employees, and completed many non-clinical drug evaluation research projects with Medicilon scientists and technicians for clients at home and abroad.
As GLP-based laboratories are important for non-clinical drug researches, Medicilon Preclinical Research became one of the early CRO companies that built preclinical animal laboratories in China after following their American peers’ experience. The joint venture has been granted  AAALAC Accreditation and GLP certification by NMPA, and meets the FDA’s GLP standards . Medicilon Preclinical Research is qualified for IND services and has been granted AAALAC Accreditation.
