Drug development

In the final stages of drug discovery and development, volunteers are given candidate pharmaceutical compounds in order to determine their effectiveness. Pharmaceutical companies often need to determine that all of the drug related material is recovered, to ensure there is no accumulation in the body that could lead to toxic effects.

Hair Diagnostix can screen hair samples from volunteers in these studies, to determine if the drug related material is still in the body after the study has concluded. The information gathered from this screen can complement those performed by pharmaceutical industries.
