Choosing the RIGHT Model - Syngeneic versus Humanized Mouse Models

Nov 4, 2021 11:00:00 AM / by Champions Oncology posted in Syngeneic Models, Immuno-Oncology, Humanized Models

Mouse models have been the workhorses of preclinical immuno-oncology (IO) research, and advances in mouse model development have expanded to applications for nearly all types of solid tumors and hematological malignancies. Preclinical evaluation of experimental immunotherapies has been advanced by syngeneic and humanized mouse models. Syngeneic mice are one of the most established types of models used in cancer research, whereas humanized mice are contemporary mouse model that has been critical to the screening of immunotherapeutic agents. Here we highlight features of syngeneic and humanized mouse models and define which models are most relevant to different phases of preclinical IO research.
