Charles River Discovery Services’ model platform for multiple sclerosis (MS) focuses on induction of experimental allergic encephalomyelitis (EAE) in rats and mice. EAE is induced via injection of an inoculum containing either myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG) or proteolipid protein (PLP) in order to produce acute or chronic forms of the disease. Models include acute, progressive or relapsing-remitting disease course with elements of inflammation and neurodegeneration, components relevant to human MS.
Models for Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
- Acute EAE in Rats
- Chronic MOG-induced EAE in Rats
- Chronic MOG-induced EAE in Mice
- Chronic PLP-induced EAE in Mice
