Fibrosis Models in Mice and Rats

Selecting preclinical in vivo models that are reflective of clinical outcome is a key challenge in the development of new therapies to treat fibrotic diseases.  To accelerate research focused on pulmonary, renal, and liver fibrosis, WuXi AppTec has established a series of in vivo models supported with anti-fibrotic efficacy data.  Our platform also includes a …Read More >

Translational Pharmacology of CNS and Metabolic Disorders for Testing New Modality Therapies

Animal studies may provide a close approximation to humans when addressing the key challenge of clinical translatability. In the preclinical setting, new insights into disease models and mechanisms are crucial to efficacy studies. In this webinar, Dr. Deming Xu, Chief Pharmacologist, Executive Director, and Head of In Vivo Pharmacology of WuXi AppTec Discovery Biology will …Read More >

Case Study: Clinically Relevant NASH Animal Model

In this case study, we demonstrate clinical relevance of the HFD+CCL4 (high-fat diet and carbon tetrachloride) NASH animal model. Improvement of hepatic fibrosis has been a challenging endpoint in NASH clinical trials and selecting animal models that show anti-fibrotic efficacy has been equally challenging for the preclinical development of new NASH drugs.  Our findings indicate …Read More >

Quantitative Histopathology of Fibrosis in an Animal Model of NASH

The hepatic fibrosis has been the most challenging aspect in the animal models for nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Although it could induced by nutritional (high-fat died with high cholesterol, methionine and choline deficient diet, etc), chemical (carbon tetrachloride, thioacetamide, α-naphthylisothiocyanate etc.), and surgical (bile duct ligation) means, the clinical relevance of the resulting fibrosis remains an …Read More >
