New Animal Model for Atherosclerosis Research
Japanese quail were investigated for their utility as a model for the discovery and evaluation of anti-atherosclerosis compounds. Although they possessed suitable characteristics for a screening animal, their development of atherosclerosis was too variable to make them a practical model. A search was conducted to find a means to make quail uniformly atherosclerotic. To this end a line of quail susceptible to experimental atherosclerosis (SEA) were selectively bred. Thus, the SEA Japanese quail is a new animal model for atherosclerosis research.
