A Highly Reproducible In Vivo Model For Bleomycin-Induced Lung Fibrosis In Mice To Evaluate Drugs For The Treatment Of IPF
White Paper | GVK Biosciences

Bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis has been a useful pre-clinical model in several species and is most prevalent in rodent models to evaluate potential prophylactic and therapeutic drugs for IPF. The induction and progression of the disease in rodents is of a short duration, making it a practical model for evaluating test compounds in preclinical research. Major drawbacks for this model have been its mortality rate and inconsistency in the induction of the disease. Access to a large portfolio of in vivo fibrosis models allowed for successful drug testing.
