About Us

No animal study can predict with certainty how a therapy will perform in human subjects, but with over 1,500 validated models, we ensure they come as close as possible.

Being Correct Is Everything

No animal study can predict with certainty how a therapy will perform in human subjects, yet that is what you need them to do. You need to get as much information from them as possible. Due to study design, the models and technologies available, or lack of proper expertise, most preclinical, in-vivo pharmacological studies are not providing as much information as they could be. These missing insights can derail a pipeline. Missed opportunities are not what you should expect from pharmacology CROs. You should expect more. Now you can. You can expect more from PharmaLegacy because PharmaLegacy has more: more models, more experience, and more focus. We have over 1,500 validated animal models, including non-human primate models and many humanized rodent models, spanning over 40 different diseases in the fields of cancer, auto-immunity, inflammation and bone. Our staff has an average of 15 – 20 years of pharmacology experience, and most of them have been with PharmaLegacy for more than 5 years. When you search for a pharmacology CRO, set your expectations high. Contact PharmaLegacy and let’s discuss how we can exceed them.

How PharmaLegacy is Different

PharmaLegacy is equipped to obtain higher-quality pharmacological data across a greater number of diseases than any other CRO.

We have the greatest collection of extensively validated pre-clinical models. We have over 1,500 validated animal models of disease spanning over 40 different diseases in the fields of cancer, bone, auto-immunity and inflammation.

We have the most highly experienced and specialized staff in in vivo pharmacology. Our scientific staff have an average of over 15 years of pharmacology experience. We pride ourselves on employee retention, which means you’ll have stable scientific teams who are experienced working with each other and our advanced models.

We utilize non-human primate animal models and many humanized rodent models, which provide more clinically relevant data than other types of in vivo models.

We have a number of proprietary platforms which supplement our capabilities in preclinical pharmacology.

We have helped hundreds of clients with IND filings to both FDA and CFDA (China) for their therapeutic biologics candidates in a variety of immune disease and oncology. Our animal vivarium is fully accredited by AAALAC and houses species ranging from rodents, rabbits and other small animals to NHP. We also conduct adjacency studies in PK/PD, molecular pharmacology and preliminary toxicology. Overall, we provide complete preclinical pharmacology services for early proof-of-concept of therapeutics and fulfillment of regulatory requirements.

Delivering the most accurate and confident scientific answers and securing the greatest IP protection for our clients are the lifeblood of our services. Operations based on international GLP and QA best practices.
