DEVELOPMENT OF NEW ANIMAL MODEL FOR HYPERACTIVE DISORDER AND SCHIZOPHRENIA. (Combined w/R-5825)
The study of schizophrenia and neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s Disease (PD) and the subsequent development of therapeutic agents to combat these diseases rely upon accurate non-human models that mimic the pathogenesis of their human co unterparts. As the current schizophrenic and PD models fail to simulate all of the pathogenic, histological, biochemical and clinical features of their respective disease, their value remains limited. A University at Buffalo researcher has develope d a line of transgenic mice that mimic the developmental disease processes and underlying mechanisms found in schizophrenia and PD. This model may serve as a means to rapidly advance the study of psychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases as well as the development of pharmacotherapeutics to treat them.
