Unit I

Laboratory Animals:
Study of CPCSEA and OECD guidelines for maintenance, breeding
and conduct of experiments on laboratory animals, Common lab
animals: Description and applications of different species and strains
of animals. Popular transgenic and mutant animals.
Techniques for collection of blood and common routes of drug
administration in laboratory animals, Techniques of blood collection
and euthanasia.

Unit II

Preclinical screening models
a. Introduction: Dose selection, calculation and conversions,
preparation of drug solution/suspensions, a grouping of animals and
importance of sham negative and positive control groups.
The rationale for the selection of animal species and sex for the study.
b. Study of screening animal models for
Diuretics, nootropics, anti-Parkinson’s, antiasthmatics,
Preclinical screening models: for CNS activity- analgesic,
antipyretic, anti-inflammatory, general anaesthetics, sedative and
hypnotics, antipsychotic, antidepressant, antiepileptic, anti parkinsonism, Alzheimer’s disease

Unit III

Preclinical screening models: for ANS activity, sympathomimetics,
sympatholytics, parasympathomimetics, parasympatholytics, skeletal
muscle relaxants, drugs acting on the eye, local anaesthetics

Unit IV

Preclinical screening models: for CVS activity- antihypertensives,
diuretics, antiarrhythmic, antidyslepidemic, anti aggregatory,
coagulants, and anticoagulants
Preclinical screening models for other important drugs like antiulcer, antidiabetic, anticancer and antiasthmatics.
Research methodology and Bio-statistics
