Glucose tolerance test

First in vivo proof of concept of the impact of your compound designed to treat type 2 diabetes on whole-body glucose homeostasis.

Key benefits

  • Large-scale screening (IPGTT 20-30 compounds/week and OGTT 10-20 compounds/week) with an in vivo technique
  • Initial in vivo insights into your compound’s efficacy on glucose homeostasis
  • Sensitivity (15%) to detect a statistically significant impact of your compound.

Description and parameters

The Glucose Tolerance Test investigates how diabetic animals treated with your compound regulate their glycemia after glucose.
