Inflammation is a vital part of the body’s immune response. It is the body’s attempt to heal itself after an injury; defend itself against foreign invaders, such as viruses and bacteria; and repair damaged tissue. Biomere’s interest in inflammatory disease stems from our expertise in autoimmunity.
We offer models of antigen induced inflammation 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 rodent models of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).
