Preclinical research is working hard to provide more reliable models for companies to assess their drug candidate in this area. However, current literature in rodents highlights the need to develop an accurate, reliable, reproducible and observer-independent assessment of pulmonary fibrosis.
To address these challenges, Biocellvia developed a unique multiparametric image analysis using proprietary software tools. Using computerized analysis of high-resolution, digitalized histological slides of entire lobe sections, our automated quantitation measures key morphometric parameters of pulmonary fibrosis with high accuracy and reliability:
- Fibrotic foci
- Collagen content
- Other parameters on demand
