SARS-CoV-2 infection induces greater disease severity in the Physiogenex free-choice diet-induced obese NASH hamster – a metabolic comorbidities model of COVID-19
The devastating pandemic of COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) is dramatically affecting every country on Earth, with millions of deaths and global economy turndown.
Obesity, type 2 diabetes and related comorbidities like NASH and heart failure are associated with the most severe forms of COVID-19 seen in humans. Therefore, preclinical animal models are urgently needed to validate therapies for obese/type 2 patients.
In collaboration with the Institut Pasteur de Lille, Physiogenex now delivers a unique metabolic comorbidities model infected with SARS-CoV-2:
