Selecting an Animal Model for Safety Testing of Women’s Health Treatments

Selecting the appropriate animal model for testing the safety of women’s health therapies, such as intravaginal rings and gels, is crucial for the successful development of the therapy.  While nonhuman primates are physiologically the most similar to humans, and therefore advantageous for late-stage evaluation of efficacy, there are several other animal model options suitable for […]
