Mouse Model of Hepatitis C Goes from Soup to Nuts
A new mouse model combines transgenes and tweaks to the innate immune system to make "a mouse model with heritable susceptibility to hepatitis C," Alexander Ploss told BioWorld Today.
"The field," he added, "has looked for something like this for many years."
Ploss, who is at Princeton University, is the co-corresponding author of a paper describing the animals, which appeared in the July 31, 2013, online issue of Nature.
