insulin resistant dyslipidemic hamster model

A nutritional hamster model combining insulin resistance / diabetes and dyslipidemia

key benefits

  • Provides a noteworthy competitive advantage for your compound effects on both insulin resistance/diabetes, dyslipidemia and hepatic steatosis.
  • To select the best drug candidate in a very reproducible model with lipoprotein metabolism similar to humans.
  • To test the efficacy of novel drugs affecting both glucose and lipoprotein metabolism in a model validated with reference compounds.

pharmacological validation

  • Positive reference compounds: fenofibrate, rosiglitazone, sitagliptin
