Preclinical Pharmacology

Cardiomedex offers state-of-the-art technical platform and animal models for evaluating the effects of drugs and nutritional factors in the field of hypertension, myocardial infarction, cardiac hypertrophy, heart failure, endothelial dysfunction… Multiple cardiovascular risk factors can be combined in one model to mimic the human situation.

All of our services have the advantage of intelligent experimental design, expert scientific advice and consultancy.

  • More effective go/no-go decisions to focus resources on the best candidates
  • Accelerated drug discovery and preclinical development process
  • Selection of the best candidates by combining human data with preclinical data


Efficacy and Safety research capabilities

ECGCardiomedex’s mission is to execute¬†outstanding preclinical studies that deliver key mechanistic data and to help eliminate the risk of cardiac safety issues of drugs before they hit the pipeline or clinical trials.

Cardiomedex offers tailor-made studies and assays, and the capability to develop new models to fulfill our clients’ needs.

Please find below a non-exhaustive list of services.
