Humanized metabolic disease models

Atherosclerotic lesion (type V)

Within these metabolic and cardiovascular expertises we offer custom-made drug and dietary intervention studies in among others our unique APOE*3-Leiden.CETP transgenic mouse model. APOE*3-Leiden.CETP mice are a unique mouse model with a lipoprotein metabolism closely resembling that of humans.

Coagulation mouse models (siRNA)


Mice deficient in coagulation factors display often premature death due to thrombosis-related coagulopathy, thereby precluding their use in thrombosis models. Therefore, a new approach was developed based on the interference of transcription of coagualation factors by intravenous treatment of mice with targeted synthetic siRNAs.
