The advent of immuno-oncology has necessitated changes in the types of animal models used in oncology drug discovery. Syngeneic models—inbred mice bearing an engrafted tumor derived from a genetically identical mouse strain—are invaluable preclinical research tools that enable tumor studies in the context of a complete and functional immune system. These models are powerful tools for studying tumor-immune system interactions and investigation into new immunotherapies.
This white paper takes a closer look at the benefits of syngeneic tumor models and provides:
