Mice With Humanized Livers For Drug Screening

Research funded by NIBIB at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has resulted in the ability to provide both mouse liver function and human liver function in the same mouse. This capability enables researchers to investigate how human livers metabolize drugs, to test susceptibility to toxicity, and to demonstrate species-specific responses that typically do not show up until clinical trials.
