WBI has a wide variety of animal models for inflammation and inflammatory diseases.
These include:

Carrageenan Model – Rat 1-day assay
Irritant-induced Inflammation Models – Mouse or Rat
2-week assay
Air Pouch Model – Rat or Mouse 6-day assay

Data analysis with either model includes the basic paw swelling measurement supplemented as requested with chemistries, cell counts, cytokine measurements and histopathological analysis of bone at affected joints.

These models are useful in the initial in vivo evaluation of anti-inflammatory compounds developed for the treatment of diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis. The basic measurement in the first two models is measurement of edema in response to irritants. In the third model, the production of cytokines is measured in response to irritation with or without drug treatment.

Test materials are administered by injection, oral, or intratracheal administration. Plasma or sera are collected at designated time intervals for prompt shipment to your laboratory.

Streptozocin-induced Diabetes - Rat 30-day assay

Rats treated with the antibiotic Streptozocin provide our model for studying the effectiveness of potential anti-diabetic agents. Diabetic condition in each rat is assessed by blood glucose measurements to select rats for the treatment of Test Materials. The treatment study parameters include urine collection studies with assay for albumin excreted in urine to provide a Urinary Albumin Excretion Rate (UAER). Ancillary measurements include glucose, ketones and blood in urine. We provide a statistical analysis of the UAER data in our Final Report along with the glucose and other measurements used to select diabetic rats for treatment.

Test materials are administered by injection, oral, or intratracheal administration. Plasma or sera are collected at designated time intervals for prompt shipment to your laboratory.

Our necropsy services include removal, weights, preservation and collection of designated organs for histology or shipment to your laboratory.
