Special Strain of Mice to Study Human Disease

May 12, 2022

Research continues as shown by this article. A murine model(special strain of mice to study human disease) has been developed for the study of HPS pulmonary fibrosis. A different mode of putting Bleomycin ( a chemotherapeutic antibiotic) into the mice model was performed and showed to be successful. This mode slowed down the progression of pulmonary fibrosis enabling researchers to better study the mechanism of lung disease in HPS which will help lead to a therapeutic treatment.
