Message: Hello - My name is Janet and I am the Director of Quality at Cosette Pharmaceuticals. Recently we have had an unfortunate incident where a lot of Product was rejected due to the presence of Mold, but a tube was shipped to an end-user/patient. I would like to have a toxicity assessment performed to determine the risk to the patient. The Product is a paste used for oral lesions, therefore it is applied in the mouth.
Can you recommend a Toxicology consultant that can help me.
Best Regards,

ClinPath Labs for Renal Toxicity Biomarkers?

Hi all:

Does anyone know of a lab that has validated the urinary markers of renal tox (e.g Urinary KIM-1, Clusterin, Cystatin C, Trefoil Factor 3, β2-microglobulin, and Lipocalin-2) in rats and dogs?

Thanks in advance

Rat tumor models

I have a client looking for a CRO that conducts rat tumor models. They have a biologic that is more potent in rats than in mice and PD effects are more robust. I know these models exist because I saw them in use occasionally when I was in industry.

Does anyone know if there are any CROs that conduct rat tumor models?...

I am writing on behalf of Nick Otis, an attorney in Northwest Indiana. We represent an individual who suffered complete liver failure and required a liver transplant. Our client’s pathologist, Dr. John Hart, at University of Chicago, identified red yeast rice as the culprit for my client’s liver failure. Our client was an otherwise healthy middle aged male with no prior medical issues.

We are interested in retaining someone in the toxicology field with experience in this area to review the medical records and provide their opinion. If that is something your company can perform, please let me know....
