Functional human hepatocytes xenografted into the liver of mice can be used as a model system to study pharmacokinetics, infection of hepatitis viruses, and the efficacy of hepatitis vaccines. Significant levels of liver xeno-repopulation have been reported in Fah−/−Rag2−/−Il2rg−/− mice. However, the high mortality and low breeding rate of this model may hinder its application. A new model, termed Fah−/−Nod/Scid mice, which combines the advantages of liver repopulation in Fah−/− mice with the… CONTINUE READING
