If you’re developing anti-diabetic or gut hormone-related drugs, serotonin reuptake inhibitors, fibroblast growth agonists, or any other therapeutic targeting elements of the musculoskeletal system, it’s crucial to consider what effects these potential therapeutics can have on the system.

Join our musculoskeletal toxicology experts for this webinar to answer questions on if a drug compound will potentially affect human bones. They will also present pathology and juvenile findings to help you understand the evaluation of bone, muscle, and cartilage in efficacy and safety studies.
