Our Opinion

Nuvation Bio Inc. is on the Cruelty Free Investing list for exploiting animals because the company does animal testing to assess a product’s safety profile.

Supporting Evidence:

The company stated in the following report that they exploit animals for product testing.

“If you look at some of our preclinical xenograft data with NUV-422, in this particular experiment we have shown that NUV-422 is superior to standard of care Temozolomide in an in vivo xenograft model of GBM. So if you look at this study here, over approximately a month period of time, untreated animals had their tumors grow significantly in the black solid line, animals treated with standard of care Temozolomide in the purple line still had significant growth of their tumors.” (Page 3) Read the full document
