Overview

The glucose tolerance test (GTT) can be used to assess the ability of your compound to enhance glucose handling following acute or chronic administration in rodents. With quick study initiation and rapid turnaround times on data generation, the GTT can collect information on gut hormone responses, changes in hepatic glucose output and whole-body glucose disposal in the postprandial state. A quick go/no-go on an inexpensive platform, it is ideal for investigating multiple routes of compound and glucose administration (PO, IP, IV, SC and IM) to move your discovery program to the next step in short order.
