About this book


In recent years, human studies have made enormous contributions towards an understanding of the genetic basis of diabetes mellitus; however, most of the experimentation needed for the invention and testing of novel therapeutic approaches cannot be performed in humans.  Thus, there is no alternative to appropriate animal models.  In Animal Models in Diabetes Research, expert researchers explore the current status of the most important models and procedures in order to provide a timely resource in experimental diabetology.  The first half of the volume serves as a comprehensive overview on our current knowledge of the pathogenesis and pathophysiology of diabetes in animal models through a series of reviews in model strains.  The book then continues with vital, established protocols that are employed in the characterization and study of animal models of diabetes.  As a volume in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series, this work contains the type of detailed description and key implementation advice necessary to achieve successful results.


Authoritative and cutting-edge, Animal Models in Diabetes Research delivers essential content that will be an important resource to advance diabetes research in the years to come.
