  • huPBMC-NOG is a model for investigation of adult/mature cell populations.
  • This model permits the assessment of effector and memory T cells.
  • Human peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMC) engrafted mice are optimally suited for studies immediately following engraftment as Graft vs. Host Disease (GvHD) limiting survival time to 4-6 weeks. In addition, the GvHD response can be used as a screening system for T cell modulating drugs, with readouts including body weight and clinical condition, liver injury and immune cell infiltration into organs.
  • See Søndergaard et al. and Cox et al. for description of the GvHD model and its use in drug target validation.
  • By default, Taconic does not typically utilize myeloablation prior to PBMC engraftment as it can shorten the study window. If desired, inquire about options such as irradiation, PBMCs of specific donor HLA types or patient-derived PBMCs.
  • We recommend reviewing the comprehensive document Taconic's Humanized Immune System Models: Licensing, Care & Resources and the Video: Care of HIS mice for experimental success prior to ordering.
Orders by weight: Taconic cannot accept orders by weight for this model. Please note that shipments may contain animals with a larger weight variation.
