Acute Toxicity (GLP or Non-GLP) and Chronic Toxicity (GLP or Non-GLP)

For several decades CARE’s exceptional team of scientists including toxicologists, pathologists, veterinary surgeons, regulatory specialists, and support personnel has designed and performed safety programs ranging from acute through chronic toxicity.

Acute toxicity describes the adverse effects of a substance which result either from a single exposure or from multiple exposures in a short period of time (usually less than 24 hours). To be described as acute toxicity, the adverse effects should occur within 14 days of the administration of the substance. Our evaluation of acute toxicity data includes the relationship between the exposure of animals to the test substance and the incidence and severity of all abnormalities, including behavioral and clinical abnormalities, the reversibility of observed abnormalities, gross lesions, body weight changes, effects on mortality, clinical pathology, histopathology, and any other toxic effects as required by the client. Our data from acute studies in rodent and non-rodents are used in conjunction with future repeat-dose data to aid in the determination of doses, routes, formulations, and regimens to be used in potential clinical studies. Non-GLP acute studies use a minimum number of animals and end-points and are intended to provide data used to make a go/no-go decision with respect to more a GLP study or more definitive studies. Species available include mice, rats, hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, canine, swine, sheep, poultry, and large farm animals.

Our chronic toxicity studies provide a thorough examination of the dose effect of a given substance on homeostasis, bodily function, induced diseases, and the effect on lifespan. These provide the bulk of the preclinical information used for assessing safety and risk. The study is conducted in rodent and non-rodent models, in both sexes, and over a regimen that approaches the lifespan of the animal. There are often multiple intermediate evaluations, including daily observations, weekly food and water consumption, and body weight determinations, pharmacokinetic satellite plasma collection, interim necropsies, clinical pathology, and more. At the termination of the study all animals are subjected clinical pathology and to a full necropsy with full tissue collection followed by histopathology. We recommend group sizes in GLP studies sufficient in number to assure enough animals survive to provide statistical significant data. Non-GLP chronic studies use a minimum number of animals and end-points and are intended to provide data used to make a go/no-go decision with respect to the GLP chronic study in the animal model chosen. In some cases a chronic study could provide data needed to evaluate the cancer potential of a certain substance and is usually designed to mimic the route of human exposure. Species available include mice, rats, rabbits, canine, and other small and large species.

The purpose of the safety pharmacology core battery is to investigate the effects of a test substance on vital functions. In this regard, the cardiovascular, respiratory, and central nervous systems are usually considered the vital organ systems that should be studied in the core battery.

At CARE we offer studies in the following areas:

  1. Central Nervous System
    • Effects of the test substance on the central nervous system should be assessed appropriately. Motor activity, behavioral changes, coordination, sensory/motor reflex responses and body temperature should be evaluated. For example, a functional observation battery (FOB), modified Irwin’s, or other appropriate test can be used.
  2. Cardiovascular System
    • Effects of the test substance on the cardiovascular system should be assessed appropriately. Blood pressure, heart rate, and the electrocardiogram should be evaluated. In vivo including methods for repolarization and conductance abnormalities, should also be considered
  3. Respiratory System
    • Effects of the test substance on the respiratory system should be assessed appropriately. Respiratory rate and other measures of respiratory function (e.g., tidal volume or hemoglobin oxygen saturation) should be evaluated. Clinical observation of animals is generally not adequate to assess respiratory function, and thus these parameters should be quantified by using appropriate methodologies

Also known as Behavioral studies, we conduct these to study the potential of a substance to be a neurotoxin which alters the normal activity of the nervous system. This can eventually disrupt or even kill neurons, key cells that transmit and process signals in the brain and other parts of the nervous system.

We observe symptoms that may appear immediately after exposure or be delayed. They may include limb weakness or numbness, loss of memory, vision, cognitive and behavioral problems and sexual dysfunction.

In our non-GLP neurotox studies we use a minimum number of animals and end-points since these are intended to provide data used to make a go/no-go decision with respect to the a potential GLP study in the animal model chosen.

Species available include mice, rats, rabbits, and canine.

At CARE we conduct reproductive toxicity studies designed to investigate the affect of a test article on male and female fertility and reproductive performance, estrous, spermatogenesis, implantation, embryo-fetal survival and development, gestation length, parturition, lactation, pup survival and development (including potential functional and behavioral effects), and the ability of offspring from the exposed parental generation to reproduce normally.

We conduct non-GLP pilot studies to provide data needed to determine dose levels for definitive studies. Pilot and embryo-fetal development studies are usually conducted in rats and rabbits.

We usually conduct fertility and reproductive performance studies and pre and postnatal development studies in rats or mice. Mice or dogs can also be used when necessary for embryo-fetal development studies.
