DYSLIPIDAEMIA AND ATHEROSCLEROSIS PRECLINICAL CRO SERVICES

Pionneer in the development of animal models and radiotracer-based experiments, Physiogenex provides dyslipidaemia preclinical CRO services with validated in-house diet-induced animal models. Thanks to our expertise, we help our clients to evaluate their drug compounds targeting dyslipidaemia and atherosclerosis. We also offer consulting services and customized research solutions to optimize your projects.

We provide a large panel of capabilities with gold-standard and radio-tracer based experiments: lipoprotein kinetics, macrophage-to-faeces reverse cholesterol transport to trace cholesterol metabolism or VCAM-1 nuclear imaging to label inflammation in atherosclerotic plaques.
