which viruses induce hepatitis in only a few OW species

B,C, delta


which NHP species are susceptible to both Hep A and B

marmosets and chimpanzees


which NHP species are most susceptible to Hep E

cynos and Aotus monkeys


what is the animal model for Hep A

Aotus spp, Marmosets and Tamarins


model of choice for Hep A research



model of choice for Hep B research



model of choice for Hep E research

Aotus monkey


closest viral relative to Hep C that can be used as a model?

GBV-B, causes acute hepatitis, increased liver enzymes that quickly return to normal as virus is cleared


animal model for GBV-B as model for Hep C research

Saguinus spp, Callithrix jaccus


animal model for Cholelithiasis

Aotus spp, Callithrix jacchus, Saimiri spp


characteristics of Cholelithiasis

Aotus and Callithrix, not based on cholesterol in the diet, Squirrel monkey requires addition of cholesterol to the diet. The frequency of stone formation appears to be inversely related to the concentration of cholesterol in the plasma. There is a suggestion that regimens which lower plasma cholesterol may result in accelerated gallstone formation.


animal model of cholesterol cholelithiasis

Aotus spp


characteristics of cholesterol cholelithiasis

Aotus monkeys spontaneously develop cholesterol gallstones when fed a diet supplemented with 1.5% cholesterol.


NHP animal model for Gilbert's syndrome

Saimiri boliviensis


characteristics of model for Gilbert's syndrome

nonhemolytic unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia, defect in hepatic uptake of unconjugated bilirubin and/or a conjugating enzyme deficiency, plasma of normal Bolivian squirrel monkeys what are fasted for 24hrs have a hyperbilirubinemia. most likely due to the presence of the hepatic enzyme UDP-glucuronyl transferase that results in a higher plasma and hepatic bilirubin level during a fast.


animal model of hemochromatosis

Callithrix jacchus


characteristics of model of hemochromatosis

characterized by excessive absorption of ingested iron, saturation of iron-binding protein, and deposition of hemosiderin in tissues especially liver, pancreas, and skin. will seek Kupffer cells in the liver lining sinusoids eating all the hemosiderin


animal model of gout

Cebus, Ateles, Lagothrix, Saguinus spp


characteristics of model of gout

NHP and humans lack uricase leading to hyperuricemia with subsequent deposition of urates in and about the joints.


animal model of Parkinson's Disease

Callithrix jacchus

Macaca mulatta

Macaca nemestrina

Chlorocebus aethiops


characteristics of Parkinson's model

acute exposure to MPTP causes motor symptoms/signs indistinguishable from PD. Lewy bodys are the characteristic intracellular inclusion seen in the brain. MPTP induces and acute, toxic disorder associated with injury to nigral neurons, whereas PD is a chronically progressive disorder of unknown cause. Experimental animals do not develop the cognitive and memory impairments that occur in PD


animal model for Cerebral Beta-Amyloid Angiopathy

Saimiri spp


characteristics of Cerebral Beta-Amyloid Angiopathy

manifest beta-amyloid deposition in the cerebral blood vessels with age. used to test in vivo beta-amyloid labeling strategies


animal model for Multiple Sclerosis/ Experimental Allergic Encephalomyelitis

Callithrix jacchus

Macaca mulatta

Macaca fascicularis


characteristics of Multiple Sclerosis model

called experimental allergic or autoimmune encephalomyelitis. sensitization to myelin basic protein (BP) induces a cell-mediated delyated-type hypersensitivity reaction to host myelin


how do you causes relapsing remitting EAE

treat acute attack with dexamethasone for 3 days


animal model for Spongiform Encephalopathy

Saimiri spp, Saguinus spp


characteristics of Spongiform encephalopathy model

mental and physical abilities deterioriate and a myrial of tiny holes appear in the cortex, causing it to appear like a sponge.


animal model of neurodegenerative disease

aged Saimiri spp


characteristics of neurodegenerative disease model

aged NHP develop age associated behavioral and brain abnormalities similar to those in aged humans such as degenerative changes, neuritis and deposits of amyloid in senile plaques and around blood vessels
