Allergies & Inflammation are immune system disorders and symptoms triggered by reactions to antigens.  How our body responds in a normal or exaggerated response to antigens is cause for the significance of understand how to treat immune response related disorders with novel therapeutics.

At AniLocus, we provide your team with standard and customizable preclinical models to validate the efficacy and safety of allergy-related drug/device therapeutics.

We can develop experimental design, IACUC protocols, model selection, model induction, targeting studies, microosmotic drug infusion, behavioral assessments, histopathology, immunohistochemistry, serology, toxicity, tolerability, data analysis, acute and long-term efficacy and safety, and toxicology dosing studies for translational drug delivery/administration routes.

Worldwide Allergy & Immune Disorder Prevalence*

  • Food Allergies – ≥4% adults and children
  • Anaphylaxis – 0.25% of hospitalizations)
  • Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) – 4.8 million people)
  • Asthma (Childhood, Exercise-Induced, Adulthood, Occupational) – 260 million people
  • Chronic Cough – 9.6% of population)
  • Chronic Granulomatous Disease – 1:250,000 people
  • Chronic Sinusitis – 28 million people
  • Churg-Strauss Syndrome – 11:1,000,000 people
  • Common Variable Immunodeficiency – 1:25,000 people
  • Conjunctivitis – ~6 million, United States
  • Contact Dermatitis – 5.7 million people
  • Drug Allergy – 10% of population
  • Environmental/Seasonal Allergies – 30% of total world population
  • Eosinophilic Esophagitis – 1:1,000 people
  • Eczema – 30 million people
  • Hay fever – 30% of world population
  • Urticaria and Angioedema – 86 million people

Multiple animal models are used in preclinical product development for allergy and immune disorder therapies including:

  • Gene knockout/knockin/trapped
  • Allergy Rodent Models
  • Immunodeficiency Rodent Models
  • Transgenic rodents
  • Chemically-Induced Point Mutation rodents
  • Stress-induced models
  • Drug-Induced models
  • Wound/Laceration Models
  • Metabolic Dysfunction Models (Diet-induced, Metabolic disorder, micronutrient deficient)
  • And more…

We conduct translational in vivo animal studies collecting detailed, comprehensive results with rapid turnaround.

Drug modalities are different types of therapeutic agents. Each drug is a customizable tool designed for therapeutic intervention. The question is…does your product work and is it safe?

At AniLocus, we conduct relevant preclinical studies to validate any drug modality:

  • Antibodies (nanobodies, monoclonal)
  • Gene therapy (CRISPR, TALEN)
  • Viral therapy (adenovirus-AAV, lentivirus)
  • Oligo- and polypeptides (e.g., stapled and modified peptides)
  • Oligo- and polynucleotides (e.g., siRNAs, mRNAs, aptamers)
  • Polyglycosides
  • Macrocyclic molecules
  • Drug conjugates (e.g., antibody–drug conjugates, drug–drug conjugates, fluorescence-labeled drugs)
  • Targeted protein degraders (e.g., proteolysis-targeting chimeras (PROTACs) and molecular glues) that induce a chemical knockdown of proteins
  • Cellular therapies (stem cells, allogenic, autologous)

We can perform multiple interrogative assays for any therapeutic area and sample type:

  • DNA: Extraction, PCR, ddPCR, qPCR, sequencing, genotyping
  • RNA: Gene expression profiling, RT-PCR, miRNA, Next-generation sequencing (Nanostring, Illumina), spatial transcriptomics, In situ hybridization (ISH), Multiplex ISH
  • Protein: Immunoassays (ELISA, EIA, Luminex), proteomics, ligand binding assays, protein expression, immunohistochemistry (IHC), immunocytochemistry (ICC), and  immunofluorescence (IF)
  • And more!
