Getting things under control: new mouse model aids study of immunomodulation

Osaka University-led research team has generated a novel mouse model to study complex mechanisms of immunomodulatory human disease therapies that are ineffective in wild-type mice

Mice are resistant to immunomodulatory drugs (IMiDs). As a result, studying the effects of IMiDs was not possible in existing types of mice. Here, an ...
