Porcine Models and Pancreatic Cancer Research

porcine model for lung and pancreatic cancer research

Despite the constant change in the medical research environment, novel methods often result in revolutionary discoveries. Among these, the upsurge of porcine organs and tissue usage has been at the forefront, driving scientific research to make significant strides in solving and understanding relevant health problems. Read on to learn more about porcine and pancreatic cancer research.

Revealing Insights through the Porcine Models

At the heart of this debate is the complex relationship between porcine tissues and pancreatic studies. The pancreas, an organ with many functions with far-reaching consequences for human health, becomes the main target of all-encompassing research because it is connected with some diseases such as diabetes, spinal cord injury, and cancer of the pancreas.

Pancreatic cancer, with its rapid advancement and evasive nature, calls for revolutionary solutions from animal biotech companies. The porcine tissues have been recognized to be valuable partners in the struggle against pancreatic diseases, and also, they may alter our way of combating pancreatic diseases.

Porcine: A Research Case Study in Pancreas

A recent pancreatic cancer research study led by the Okayama University Graduate School of Medicine, Dentistry, and Pharmaceutical Science in Japan supports the idea that porcine organs are promising in pancreatic research.

This was conducted and published by the National Library of Medicine, which is affiliated with the National Institutes of Health, USA. Thus, these results emphasize the therapeutic potential and the role that porcine tissue has played in the improvement of pancreatic diseases.

Porcine Models in Different Medical Fields

One of the important things that separates pig tissue is its high biological similarity to humans. Pigs possess anatomical, physiological, and genetic similarities that are close to those of humans, which makes them suitable to serve as models in research on numerous medical phenomena, including heart-lung block lung transplantations.

The common biological basis covers more than pancreatic research and includes such diverse fields as spinal cord injuries and organ transplants. Find out more on our porcine tissue FAQ page.

A Legacy of Support

The animal biotech company Animal Biotech Industries, Inc. (ABI), which has been the leading provider of post-mortem porcine tissue and organ blocks to biomedical researchers, has played a significant role in support of many earth-changing studies.

ABI conducts tissue, organs, glands, and post-mortem tissue harvests and provides advisory services to customers for superior material choice.
