Innovation Details

Detailed Description

UC San Diego investigators have created transgenic mice that could be useful as an animal model for any type of fibrosis study. Their advantage is that any individual mouse could be assayed at any point in time without sacrificing the mouse. Also, any type of collagen Type I fibrosis could be studied in these mice, including cardiovascular, pulmonary, kidney, or cystic fibrosis. While not a high throughput system, the mice could be a secondary screening for therapeutic agents for anti-fibrotic drugs.
