In general, metabolic disorders lead to abnormal accumulation or lack of metabolic substances in the body - such metabolic diseases have serious impacts on human health. Metabolic syndrome is characterized by a combination of obesity accompanied with other metabolic abnormalities, such as hypertriglyceridemia, decreased HDL levels, elevated blood pressure, and elevated fasting blood glucose levels. Obesity is increasing worldwide, and its association with these metabolic symptoms increases the risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and stroke.

Common Metabolic Diseases

  • ● Obesity
  • ● Diabetes Mellitus (DM)
  • ● Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD)
  • ● Atherosclerosis
  • ● Pancreatitis


What is Metabolic Disease Model?

Metabolic disease models often use specific rodent models, which aim to mimic metabolic disease changes in human body to evaluate the pathophysiology of metabolic diseases.


What Applications Are Metabolic Disease Model Used For?

Metabolic disease models which closely replicate the metabolic disease state in humans are an ideal tool for drug development, providing valuable insights into disease mechanisms, validation of novel therapeutic targets, as well as testing the safety and efficacy of drugs.


How are Metabolic Diseases Model Generated?

Animal models of metabolic diseases are important tools for revealing pathophysiology and providing novel insights for the development of new therapies and drugs. So far, many animal models have been developed and studied, using one or more of the following research model generation methods: genetic engineering, diet-induced, and chemically induced. These methods reflect how metabolic syndrome is a result of the combined effects if genes, diet, and environment. Metabolic disease models are used to monitor the molecular mechanisms and functional changes related to metabolic diseases.

Typical Metabolic Diseases Models:

  • ● Genetically Engineered Rodent Models
  • ● Diet Induced Rodent Models (e.g. High-fat diet)
  • ● Chemically Induced Rodent Models
  • ● And More

Cyagen had developed a series of metabolic disease models, such as obesity, diabetes, atherosclerosis, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, pancreatitis, etc. In addition to genetically engineered mouse models, some models simulate human diseases through drug induction and/or diet induction techniques. Researchers may use such models to study the pathogenesis of related diseases, as well as perform drug screening and efficacy evaluations.
