This contract provides gap-filling support services for HIV prevention drug developers including academic (investigators), for-profit and not-for-profit small and large companies, and other product innovators (henceforth identified as Sponsors) for the development of HIV non-vaccine biomedical pr
The core services group at the Integrated Research Facility at Fort Detrick (IRF Frederick) provides cell culture, hematology, hemostasis, clinical chemistry, microbiology, and molecular virology support for monitoring animals in infectious disease studies.
The Feasibility of Novel Diagnostics for TB in Endemic Countries (FEND for TB) program supports the evaluation of early-stage diagnostics and novel diagnostic strategies for TB, in TB endemic countries to address an urgent need for improved tuberculosis (TB) diagnostics.
This service can be used to develop and perform a variety of analytical assays to assess the properties of drug substances and their formulations.
This service provides evaluation of products in animal efficacy models. A product must demonstrate a potent and selective activity profile in vitro against the HIV strain used in the model prior to its acceptance as a candidate for this service.
This service can be used to provide pharmacokinetic and safety assessments of products in mice, rats, rabbits, dogs, and nonhuman primates.
This service program supports the development and manufacture, of a wide variety of pharmaceutical dosage formulations, including tablets, capsules, semi-solid preparations, injectibles, and sustained-release products. If requested, manufacturing can be done under GMP.
The In Vitro Assessment for Antimicrobial Activity program provides capability in a broad range of in vitro assessments to evaluate promising candidate countermeasures for antimicrobial activity against microbial pathogens and vectors, including those derived from clinical speci
This contract program supports the development and refinement of animal models and animal replacement technologies and provides in vivo preclinical testing services, ranging from screening and proof-of-concept to GLP efficacy studies.
The Chemical Countermeasures Research Program (CCRP) supports the discovery and early development of medical countermeasures (MCMs) to treat the acute and/or long-term chronic toxicities after exposure to highly tox
The SVEU provides the nonhuman primates for studies to evaluate candidate SIV or HIV vaccines.
The Therapeutic Development Services program offers a collection of preclinical services to support the development of products intended for use in the cure, mitigation, diagnosis, or treatment of disease caused by a pathogen or certain toxins.
The Vaccine Development Services program offers a collection of preclinical services to support the development of vaccines intended for use in the investigation, control, prevention, and treatment of a wide range of infectious agents (other than HIV).
