Practicalities of Juvenile, Inhalation and Safety Pharmacology Studies in the Minipig

Joint exhibitor-hosted session with Huntingdon Life Sciences

Tuesday, March 25, 11:00 AM to 12:00 NOON in room 106A

Increasingly the minipig is being used for more diverse and complicated study designs. This complexity presents unique challenges and considerations that require overcoming to ensure study integrity and easier data interpretation.

Simon Moore, Head of Aerosol Technology will present the inhalation and juvenile aspects. Aidan Curran, Director of Inhalation Toxicology will present the safety pharmacology aspects. 

The Minipig as a Model for Ocular Toxicity Studies

Joint exhibitor-hosted session with CiToxLAB

Tuesday, March 25, 1:30 PM to 2:30 PM in room 101C

Minipigs are a commonly used species in biomedical research. The structure and anatomy of the eye resembles that of humans and makes minipigs a suitable model for studies where direct dosing to the ocular structures is required. This session will present detail about the practical aspects of such studies.
