Animal Experimental Models for Diabetic Nephropathy

0.3% salt supplemented / uni-nephrectomized SDT fatty rat

In-house model: the SDT fatty rat model, developed in partnership with CLEA Japan Inc., is totally devoted to diabetic nephropathy.

Although developed recently, this novel rat model has been already presented in many first-in class international meeting on nephrology – see the last model update presented at the Kidney week 2017

Mouse models of diabetic nephropathy

Physiogenex can also provide mouse models for diabetic nephropahty to evaluate drug efficacy on kidney function and pathological features.
