Sinclair Research Announces Successful Validation of GLP Safety Pharmacology Services


by Sinclair Research

Sinclair Research, a leading provider of nonclinical contract research services, today announced the successful GLP validation of its Safety Pharmacology services in partnership with CorDynamics, a premier provider of cardiovascular toxicology and safety pharmacology contract research services.

“Sinclair’s validated GLP safety pharmacology services provide drug developers with more research options,” Andy Brown, Sinclair Research’s Vice President of Commercial Operations said. “Sinclair Research is one of the only single-site CROs offering in vivo safety pharmacology studies, standalone or as part of an IND-enabling package, to help pharmaceutical developers assess the potential for adverse effects prior to first-in-human trials.”

Three pharmacological validation studies were conducted in Sinclair’s new purpose-built safety pharmacology telemetry facility. The new facility features an isolated layout to ensure the highest-fidelity data capture environment possible. The three studies, using well characterized hemodynamic, electrocardiographic and respiratory positive controls respectively, all demonstrated the ability to detect expected effects with an outstanding degree of fidelity.

“The GLP validation data generated in these positive control studies is among the highest fidelity I have analyzed for such core battery assessments,” said Dr. Michael R. Gralinski, CEO of CorDynamics. “We will be presenting this validation data at next week’s Safety Pharmacology Society Annual Meeting. It’s exciting to see our strategic partnership with Sinclair Research produce such a high-quality safety pharmacology service offering.”
