Inflammation: We are highly experienced in the field of Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and offer 3 preclinical models of the disease: Adoptive T-cell transfer (chronic), DSS (acute) and TNBS (acute). We are also now offering in vitro inflammation assays, and are developing in vivo models of RA.

Mucositis: World renowned experience in Oral and Intestinal Mucositis. Epistem can progress a potential therapeutic candidate through mechanism of action studies, dose optimisation and scheduling, to functional efficacy studies.

Plucked Hair Biomarker Platform: Patient plucked hair is an ideal surrogate tissue that can be used to measure direct response to drug treatment for biomarker studies. Epistem has developed an innovative, non-invasive plucked hair biomarker platform that enables measurment of target changes in response to drug (including phosphorylated proteins) within a single plucked human hair.
