Spontaneous & Chemically-Induced Models of Diabetes
Common models for evaluating diabetic conditions include spontaneous models and chemically induced models. The non-obese diabetic (NOD) mouse model develops spontaneous autoimmune diabetes, which shares similarities with type 1 diabetes. The STZ-induced diabetic model involves an autoimmune process that results in the destruction of Langerhans islets.
