Animal model for Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor (GIST)
Gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) is one of the most common mesenchymal tumors of the gastrointestinal tract. GISTs occur in 10-20 per one million people. Thus, GIST has been named as an orphan drug disease. Scientists at the University of Göttingen developed a new animal drug screening model for GIST.
Animal model for sporadic Alzheimer’s Disease
New transgenic mouse model for sporadic Alzheimer's Disease. It does not have any mutation and it shows neurological deficits by transgenic over-expressing a major form of amyloid beta peptides (N-truncated Abeta 4-42) found in the brain of AD patients.
Animal model for arthritic diseases
Arthritic diseases are conditions involving damages to the joints and/or cartilage. A primary form of arthritis is for example rheumatoid arthritis, which affects over 21 million people worldwide. Scientists at the University of Göttingen have developed a new animal drug screening model for arthritic diseases.
