Creative Animodel is a global Contract Research Organization specialized in the study of in vivo pharmacology. With years of hard working, we can conduct various animal models to help our customers in diabetes research and provide excellent services for the drug discovery of diabetes.
What Is Diabetes?
Diabetes Study Services at Creative Animodel
Our animal models featuring physiological and pathological changes characteristic of each diabetes subtype are available to provide diabetes study and drug testing services for clients. By monitoring glycated hemoglobin, we can get an expression of the average plasma glucose concentration over time (including the months prior to the measurement). A level ≥ 6.5% is considered a criterion for the diagnosis of diabetes.
• Type 1 diabetes models
The animal models in type 1 diabetes include genetic, viral, and chemical models. In genetic models, such as the NOD mouse and BB diabetic rat, diabetes occurs spontaneously with a total dependency on exogenous insulin. Chemical agents used in our chemical models include agents that specifically damage pancreatic beta cells, cause a temporary reduction in insulin production and secretion, or diminish the metabolic efficacy of insulin in target tissues. Streptozotocin and alloxan are the most widely used substances for destruction of pancreatic β cells.
• Type 2 diabetes models
Type 2 diabetes models include genetic, chemical, surgical, and diet-induced models. The genetic models are produced through selective breeding, spontaneous mutations, or genetic engineering, such as KK mouse, NZO mouse, and fa/fa diabetic Zucker rat. Chemical models are attained through injection of low doses of streptozotocin, standard doses together with a protecting agent, or a single dose to neonatal rats and other species. Surgical models most frequently involve complete or partial pancreatectomy in dog, cat, mouse, or rat and can be combined with other means of inducing the condition.
