Immunology/Animal Models

Observations in animal models have substantially advanced our knowledge of immune system adaptation, changes during the aging process, and age-associated degenerative diseases with autoimmune characteristics.

Animal models provided early proof that discrimination of self (that which the immune system identifies as belonging to the body) and non-self (that which the immune system identifies as foreign to the body) is determined not entirely at conception, but, to a large extent, during early fetal development by a process called immune adaptation. The animal experiments confirmed the premise that immune adaptation is determined by the fetal or neonatal environment, rather than inherited. Animal models have substantially enhanced our understanding of the role of the immune system in tissue physiology and pathology. The knowledge gained from animal models offers hope for future modification of the human immune system to combat a number of disease processes.
