Redoxis AB






Principal Investigator: Malin Hultqvist, PhD CSO

Redoxis is a Swedish CRO company that specialises in animal models for preclinical drug validation. Our main disease models are those of autoimmunity and chronic inflammation, such as Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and Multiple Sclerosis (MS). We provide both standard and novel cutting edge models of autoimmunity in rats and mice. We have great experience from performing studies for clients, which have lead to long-lasting relationships due to Redoxis leading expertise and high standard of performing studies.

Main tasks within BTCure: (1) Standardization of arthritis In Vivo models. (2) Development of novel disease models (3) SOP validation

Primary area of expertise
Redoxis provides services in the area of preclinical drug development, animal models of autoimmune conditions, immunology and genetics. With our cutting edge model development, long experience and hands-on expertise in animal models of autoimmunity, we can confidently say that we are one of the frontier providers of preclinical autoimmune models in northern Europe.

For Arthritis models we are besides models like CIA, GPI induced arthritis and CAIA models, very much focused on evaluation of the more frequently used and recognized PIA model in rat. The Pristane Induced Arthritis (PIA) represents a more T cell specific and reproducible model with high resemblance to Rheumatoid Arthritis. Redoxis also focus on development and validation of Ex Vivo systems for early drug validation, immunological mechanism analyses and In Vivo efficacy prediction.
