New treatments for cancer, diabetes, and heart disease — you may have a pig to thank

Genetically engineered pigs, minipigs, and microminipigs are valuable tools for biomedical research, as their lifespan, anatomy, physiology, genetic make-up, and disease mechanisms are more similar to humans than the rodent models typically used in drug discovery research. A Comprehensive Review article entitled ‘Current Progress of Genetically Engineered Pig Models for Biomedical Research,’ describing advances in techniques to create and use pig models and their impact on the development of novel drugs and cell and gene therapies, is published in BioResearch Open Access. —> Read More Here
