Intrexon Collaborators Obtain Access to Premier Pipeline of Large Animal Research Models and Custom Animal Development

Mattawan, Mich. and Sioux Center, Iowa (Aug. 27, 2015) : MPI Research and Exemplar Genetics today announced the first successful validation of a new genetically engineered MiniSwine model, offering an attractive alternative to rodent models, of atherosclerosis. The ExeGen® LDLR MiniSwine is a pig model in which the LDL receptor (LDLR) gene is knocked out, resulting in a more accurate analogue to atherosclerosis in humans, providing increased value to human clinical trials.

Sanford Research scientists have developed a pig model for a neurodegenerative disease that could help better treat the disorder and other physiological conditions. The findings of the project are published in Human Molecular Genetics.
