Introduction to Autoimmune & Inflammation Diseases
Autoimmune diseases and other inflammatory disorders are mediated by dysfunction, usually hypersensitivity, of the body’s immune system. These disorders are subject to intensive research and drug development efforts. Biocytogen provides robust animal models, such as those of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), psoriasis, and asthma. As a differentiating factor from other models on wild type animals, Biocytogen generates genetically humanized mouse models that allow researchers to interrogate the efficacy of therapeutics against specific human targets in mice critical to the underlying molecular mechanisms of autoimmune and immune-mediated inflammation diseases.
