Several rat models of polycystic kidney disease (PKD) have been published. The only rat model of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease currently used is the so-called Hannover rat (Han:SPRD cy/+). This model is characterized by a slow progression of uraemia, proteinuria and hyperlipidaemia. Histological changes clearly resemble those seen is human PKD.
