Animal Models for Pulmonary Diseases

Animal models are crucial in advancing our knowledge and understanding of pulmonary diseases. Using alternatives models, such as computer simulations, is simply not advanced enough to elucidate all the biological mechanisms inside a living creature.

FlexiVent – Used in Recent Pulmonary Fibrosis Research

flexivent preclinical lung function

FlexiVent – Used in Recent Pulmonary Fibrosis Research Pulmonary fibrosis describes a condition in which the normal lung anatomy is replaced by a process of active remodeling, deposition of extracellular matrix and dramatic changes in the phenotype of both fibroblasts and alveolar epithelial cells. This condition can be idiopathic, as in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), […]

First Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Mouse Model

First Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Mouse Model Congratulations to Dr. Beers and his team for developing and phenotyping the first idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis mouse model! Pulmonary fibrosis mouse model – why do we need them? Mouse models are an important research tool for preclinical scientists. Alternatives including cells and computer simulations do exist, however they are not […]
