11/06/2016 Physiogenex and CLEA Japan Inc. to present at the Kidney Week 2016, Nov. 15-20th, 2016, Chicago, IL, USA.
Effects of the SGLT2 inhibitor dapagliflozin in the salt-supplemented/uni-nephrectomized SDT fatty rat, a novel 10-week rat model for evaluating drugs targeting Diabetic Nephropathy.
Through their partnership put in place in January 2016,
Physiogenex and CLEA Japan Inc. have worked thoroughly to set-up and validate a novel rat model for evaluating drugs targeting Diabetic Nephropathy.
The Spontaneously Diabetic Torii fatty (SDT fatty) rat, a model of obesity type 2 diabetes distributed by CLEA Japan Inc. since 2012, has been optimized to fit with preclinical requirements for developing drugs targeting Diabetic Nephropathy.
Within only 10 weeks, this obese and diabetic rat model develops advanced kidney complications, with a >50% glomerular filtration rate (GFR) decline.
This rat model was used to evaluate the effects of dapagliflozin, a SGLT2 inhibitor.
The study will be presented by Dr. François Briand, Director of Research and Business Development at Physiogenex during the Diabetes Mellitus, Obesity: Basic-Experimental – II poster session, on Friday, November 18th , 2016 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM (location: Exhibit Hall)
CLEA representatives, including Dr. Shinohara, the expert who established the SDT fatty rat model, will be also on site to provide information about the model during the conference.
