Inflammatory Diseases

Biomodels interest in inflammatory disease stems from our interest in oral mucositis, and other complications of cancer therapy that involve the immune system. We offer models of antigen induced autoimmune disease such as collagen induced arthritis and myelin peptide-induced experimental allergic encephalomyelitis (a model of multiple sclerosis). In addition we offer chemically induced models of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)/ulcerative colitis as well as models of surgically induced osteoarthritis and nephritis.
