Endocrine & Metabolic Disease Models

In the field of metabolic diseases, we are proud of our portfolio of stable and effective animal models, especially those for Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD). Though popular recently, they still lack effective drug treatment.
Obesity and diabetesStreptozotocin-inducedRats/mice
SpontaneousMice (db/db, ob/ob)
SpontaneousZDF rats
High-fat and high-sugar diet-inducedMice
HyperuricemiaPotassium oxonate-inducedRats/mice
Adenine- and ethambutol-inducedRats
Liver fibrosisBile duct ligationRats
Composite factor method-inducedRats
Porcine serum-inducedRats
Lipid abnormalityHigh fat/cholesterol/fructose diet-inducedHamster

  • Cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases generally refer to ischemic or hemorrhagic diseases of the heart, brain and systemic tissues caused by hyperlipidemia, blood viscosity, atherosclerosis, and hypertension. Medicilon has established rat and mouse MCAO model evaluation system with stable lesions, high success rate, high survival rate and reliable and effective evaluation of dose-effect/time-effect relationship. We can provide efficacy evaluation of transient cerebral ischemia and permanent cerebral ischemia and complete the investigation of various pharmacodynamic core indicators according to STAIR technical guidelines. The model rodents could be customized with special diseases and complete activity evaluations according to customer requirements.

  • What is the Difference Between NAFL and NASH?


    It is completely reversible and can be completely reversed through a healthy lifestyle such as diet and exercise controlling diet, exercise and other healthy lifestyles. Drug therapy is mainly to improve lipid metabolism.


    It is a progressive form of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, a metabolically stressful metabolic stress liver injury closely associated with insulin resistance and genetic predisposition, can progress to cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. It was also significantly associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

    The etiology of NASH is complex, and the exact pathogenesis is unknown. There is no specific treatment or drug therapy for Nash.

    NASH treatment drugs with different targets have become one of the current research and development hotspots, which target the different pathogenesis of NASH, such as liver metabolism, inflammation, oxidative stress, fibrosis, etc.
