CDX Model & Drug Efficacy Evaluation


The cell line-derived xenograft (CDX) model, one of the commonly used models for studying tumor cell proliferation and in vivo drug screening, involves inoculation of tumor cells (subcultured in vitro) into immunodeficient mice. Due to the long-term cell passage in vitro, they have the characteristics of high homology, easy construction, and reproducibility. However, in the process of continuous culture and passage in vitro, tumor heterogeneity is quite different from the original tumor tissue.

Cyagen can provide various pharmacological evaluation methods, such as tumor growth curve/weight curve, blood biochemical indicators, pathological test (frozen section and paraffin section examination, H&E staining, immunohistochemistry (IHC), etc.), flow cytometry, molecular testing, which can meet your multiple needs for the analysis of drug mechanism.

Backgrounds: BALB/c nude, NOD scid, C-NKG mice, etc.

Typical Injection Sites: Subcutaneous, intravenous, or in situ.

Cyagen can provide you with various CDX models, such as breast cancer, liver cancer, bowel cancer, pancreatic cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer, kidney cancer, prostate cancer, melanoma, bladder cancer, leukemia, ovarian cancer, brain cancer models, as well as highly customized in vivo pharmacodynamic services for the corresponding models.
