Animal models

Contact dermatitis is adverse cutaneous reaction resulting from direct contact with irritant or allergic substances. The skin reaction is an inflammation-driven process characterized by swollen itchy red rash or rough and dry skin.
Oxazolone-induced contact dermatitis has been used as an animal model for identifying potential anti-inflammatory and immuno-modulating drugs.

NEUROFIT conducts screening and profiling of drug candidates in oxazolone-induced contact dermatitis. Other animal models of inflammatory disorders are also available.


NEUROFIT offers a range of validated in vitro and in vivo screening tests for psychiatry and neurology.
