Prion Disease Research & Testing

In the realm of neurodegenerative diseases, prion diseases stand as enigmas, captivating scientists with their complex mechanisms and devastating consequences. At Southern Research, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive preclinical prion disease services, empowering researchers to unravel the mysteries of these diseases and develop potential therapies.


Unraveling the Mysteries of Prion Diseases

Your Partner in Preclinical Prion Disease Research and Testing

We are capable of evaluating the efficacy, safety, and pharmacokinetic properties of your potential therapeutic compounds targeting prion disease. We offer a comprehensive suite of preclinical prion disease services tailored to address the unique challenges posed by these diseases, encompassing every stage of the research process:

Anti-Prion Compound Screening and Optimization: We utilize a range of in vitro screening assays to identify promising anti-prion compounds and optimize their efficacy and selectivity.

Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) Studies: We determine the absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion (ADME) properties of anti-prion compounds, providing valuable insights into their pharmacokinetic profiles and pharmacodynamic effects.

Regulatory Support and IND Preparation: We guide you through the intricate regulatory landscape, ensuring compliance with FDA guidelines and facilitating the preparation of Investigational New Drug (IND) applications.

The Power of Collaboration

Amplifying Your Research Impact

Southern Research has a dedicated laboratory for the study of and specialization in prion protein disease research. We are able to develop assays using a traditional ELISA platform and/or an MSD platform. We are able to run serum, plasma and CSF samples and are interested in working closely with companies developing treatments for this devastating disease by developing and validating suitable assays for clinical trial analysis.
