The diet-induced animal obesity (DIO) model recapitulates metabolic factors implicated in human obesity, which has led to its use in studying the relationship between diet, genes, and other factors in the developmental process of obesity, diabetes, and related metabolic disorders. Cyagen’s DIO mouse models are constructed through high-calorie diet feeding, which can be used for preclinical efficacy studies of obesity and related complications.
