Welcome to Laboratory Animal Research

Laboratory Animal Research encourages submissions of innovative methods and techniques that improve and expand the use of model organisms in the lab, and research that deepens our basic understanding of model organisms and the opportunities/challenges for modelling human health and disease. 

In addition, Laboratory Animal Research aims to provide expert opinions on a range of topics through reviews and perspectives, as well as important news in industry, policy and regulatory matters impacting basic and preclinical research.

Comparison of cisplatin-induced anti-tumor response in CT26 syngeneic tumors of three BALB/c substrains

To determine whether the background of BALB/c substrains affects the response to anti-tumor drugs, authors measured for alterations in tumor growth, histopathological structure of the tumor, and expressions of tumor-related proteins in three BALB/c substrains derived from different sources, after exposure to varying concentrations of cisplatin.

Sensitivity to tumor development by TALEN-mediated Trp53 mutant genes in the susceptible FVB/N mice and the resistance C57BL/6 mice

This study was undertaken to compare the sensitivities of mice strains during tumor induction by transcription activator-like effector nucleases (TALEN)-mediated Trp53 mutant gene. Alterations of their tumorigenic phenotypes including survival rate, tumor formation and tumor spectrum, were assessed in FVB/N-Trp53em2Hwl/Korl and C57BL/6-Trp53em1Hwl/Korl knockout (KO) mice over 16 weeks.
