Hurel Corporation Launches Cell-Based In Vitro Testing Product Suite, Milestone in Movement Away from Use of Live Animals in Drug and Toxicity Testing
Date:7/16/2013

Dr. Benet's presentation at HT-ADME 2013 demonstrated, within the specific scientific arena of Drug Metabolism and Pharmacokinetics, that Hurel's products can provide greatly improved insight into drugs that take a long time to be biochemically broken down (metabolized) by the liver and thus "cleared" from the bodily system; can identify differences in the metabolite molecules that a drug produces when administered in humans, dogs, or rats, respectively; and can provide in vitro data that justifies the early elimination of inappropriate pre-clinical animal species from further use in the investigation of a particular pre-clinical drug candidate.   In sum, Dr. Benet's presentation demonstrated that Hurel's products represent an important step in the pathway of reducing animal tests and substituting them with in vitro cell-based tests.

"Recently, the nation's attention was riveted by the news that the National Institutes of Health is retiring its chimpanzees from further use in biomedical research.  Hurel is pleased to demonstrate that its cell-based products comprise powerful, broadly applicable new tools that in many applications are not only more effective and predictive than existing in vitro methods, but are also more effective and predictive than live animal testing, and thus afford the technological means to extend the NIH's reduction in the use of lab animals to include increasing numbers of animals of other species in addition to chimps," said Robert Freedman, Hµrel's Chairman and CEO.  "Hurel's launch of the HμRELHuman™, HμRELDog™, and HμRELRat™ product line helps respond to the needs of society, the regulatory agencies and industry to reduce the extent of animal testing in drug development."
