Who we are and what we do

We are a team of professionals with long time experience of in-vivo pharmacology and toxicology. We assist pharmaceutical companies in their endeavours to find cures for diseases for which there are no effective treatments today and those who are working to improve the effectiveness of discovered drugs.

How we work

Together with the customer we develop a project plan. Depending on the challenge Adlego Biomedical either runs projects solitary or puts together a group of experts from our network to manage complex projects. Therefore, we can be cost effective and produce with the highest quality a variety of studies from standard DMPK studies to demanding effect studies and large toxicity studies.

Why are preclinical studies needed?

To enter into clinical trials pharmaceutical companies need to demonstrate to regulatory agencies that a new drug is effective and relatively safe to administer to humans. Information about interactions between a new drug and a living organism is obtained with use of preclinical methods.


Our main focus is to establish long-term collaboration with drug developing companies that are early in their development of new candidate drugs. With this approach we establish a relationship that is fruitful for both parties when disease models need to be developed to show proof-of-concept, and when DMPK and toxicity data are gathered. Since we are working with experts within the various fields of drug development and document all studies according to GLP the customer is guaranteed top quality reports, which fulfil the requirements of regulatory bodies. 79334397-258x120


Although we have been working with many models of cancer we continue to get requests for models we have not used before. Before we use a new model in proof-of-concept studies we validate it to obtain information about growth rate and to show that the tumour is sensitive to current therapies. We commonly also use histological techniques to further analyze the effect of therapies. Here is an example from the validation of the ACHN tumour model: Bild31

DNA launched suicidal flaviviruses as therapeutic vaccine candidates

Research background Chronic liver disease, resulting from Hepatitis B virus (HBV), Hepatitis D virus (HDV), or Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections, contributes to a major health burden worldwide. The relatively high cost of the HCV treatment brings concerns about the accessibility, especially in the developing countries. Hence, there exists a need for cost effect interventions with high efficiency. The use of DNA prime-viral vector has been validated in prime-boost vaccination. The use of Flavivirus subgenomic replicons as DNA based vaccine will provide excellent stability and high expression of the vaccine candidate genes in combination with immune activation.....
