Preclinical Research
and Regulatory
Support to Drive
IND Approval

Precision starts accelerating therapeutic and diagnostic development even before the clinical stage, with preclinical research services designed to pivot your program efficiently into clinical development. Covering biomarker strategy, assay development, non-clinical computational modeling, and pre-IND/BLA strategy and regulatory support overall, Precision is purpose-built to advance drug and diagnostic development programs.

Preclinical safety and biomarker assay development

Precision supports preclinical studies with a focus on tissue cross-reactivity studies and large molecule bioanalysis including immunogenicity and PK assays. We have experience running assays on samples from multiple species and excel at converting preclinical assays into clinical assays.

Biomarker strategy development

Early development of a biomarker strategy informs the use of biomarkers in the clinic and supports clinical development. Precision’s integrated approach to therapeutic development means that we are well positioned to leverage preclinical biomarker assays and translational informatics into the clinical stage. From assay development and the logistics of sample collection and analysis to trial design and the statistical analysis plan, the choice of biomarker and biomarker assay can impact every aspect of a study.

For this reason, we recommend developing a biomarker strategy early in development, even as early as during preclinical development, to ensure your assays and endpoints are practical and efficient when deployed at multi-site clinical study scales. Precision provides robust biomarker strategy development for effective and efficient clinical trials.

Proactive planning to optimize the use of biomarkers in oncology clinical trials

This white paper explains different types of biomarkers-diagnostic, prognostic, and predictive and how these biomarkers can be used in early phase studies to accelerate therapeutic development.
