Pre-Clinical Efficacy Models for Immuno-Oncology Studies in Humanized Mice

Pharmatest Services and Taconic Biosciences welcome everyone to a seminar titled “Preclinical efficacy models for immuno-oncology studies in humanized mice”. Humanized mouse models include functional human immune system, which allows testing efficacy of immunotherapies on human cancer cells in immunocompetent mice. The seminar also discusses the importance of using preclinical metastasis models to confirm efficacy before entering clinical trials.
