Pain Studies In Pig: advantages for nerve blocks, local & systemic therapies

Posted by MD Biosciences on Nov 22, 2019 10:36:22 AM

MD Biosciences lab has an exclusive expertise in pain studies in the pig. Our scientists have developed an acute model and a neuropathic model in pigs. Both models include a variety of assays that allows us to record spontaneous changes in behavior as well as stimuli induced withdrawal response and electrophysiology monitoring. (Why electrophysiology?)

Why the Pig is a Good Preclinical Model for Wound Healing

Posted by MD Biosciences on Mar 31, 2017 1:49:14 PM

There are many options for preclinical wound healing research. All studies are designed to predict how a particular treatment will behave in a human wound. In vitro studies, particularly those that are performed on human skin equivalent systems can provide relevant data - but what it lacks - is the ability to monitor any pain as a result of the wound and healing. Rodent studies provide an inexpensive method for gaining data, however rodents differ from humans in a number of anatomical and physiological ways. A rodent's hair is dense, the epidermis and dermis is thin, and healing is primarily through contraction.
