Rodent models chronically fed high-fat diets provide a unique opportunity to assess a compound’s ability to treat obesity and related outcomes in a wide range of manners. Through the use of specific diets, appropriate positive controls and a robust suite of analytical endpoints, researchers can hone in on certain aspects of obesity and related metabolic syndrome endpoints. Be it as simple as a change in body weight gain or as complicated as whole-body calorimetry, body composition, accurate acute food intake and a range of histological markers, our Discovery Services group can accommodate your study design.
