Ocular Studies

Lovelace Biomedical offers ocular specialties in performing preclinical efficacy, PK/ocular distribution and safety studies through in-house capacities and our dedicated partners. Studies designed to support drug research and development can be performed using intraocular or systemic administration in both small and large animal species under non-GLP or GLP conditions. Ocular evaluation can be performed as stand-alone ocular efficacy/toxicity studies or a part of general toxicology studies to support therapeutic development targeting various ocular diseases.
