Why Make A Humanized Mouse?

Why Make a Humanized Mouse?

Humanized Mouse Models The mouse has been used for over 30 years as a model system for studying human disease. Recently, “humanized” mice have grown in popularity because they are formidable models of the human being and therefore extremely useful for understanding the human condition. What exactly is a humanized mouse? A humanized mouse is […]

Expand the Possibilities of Humanized Models

humanized models

…Beyond the Coding Sequence. Human genetic sequences have been routinely inserted into the mouse genome since the early 1980s when reliable methods were first developed. These genetically humanized models were quickly recognized as a means to study human diseases or produce specific valuable human proteins. Recent method development has expanded the possibilities for genetic humanization and […]

Humanization of Larger Animal Models

humanization

Humanization of Custom Rabbit Models A major bottleneck in researching human disease and developing new drugs is the lack of larger animal models that more accurately simulate human disease in the pre-clinical setting. The advantages of developing better models for human biology become clearer every day, especially including improved chances of translating research from animal […]

Humanized Mice Used In Newborn Jaundice Research

Newborn Jaundice Research

Advanced Treatments Aiming to Stop the Development of Newborn Jaundice A condition known as jaundice is responsible for many health risks and problems involving newborn babies, particularly in lesser developed countries throughout Africa and South Asia, where treatments such as blood transfusions are not as readily available as in developed countries. Newborn jaundice is caused […]

ZIKV Mouse Model 

ZIKV Mouse Model

Studying the Zika Virus with a New ZIKV Mouse Model The Zika virus, also known as ZIKV, has become notorious in Brazil, where it had spread during 2015, infecting thousands of people. The main risk of the virus is in its association with the Cuillain-Barre Syndrome, a rare autoimmune disease that can cause microencephaly in […]
