Creative Biolabs is professional in providing high-quality NHP renal disease models, including acute renal failure (ARF), chronic renal failure (CRF), renovascular hypertension (RH), etc. Equipped with advanced technologies and seasoned scientific team, we have gained great reputation from our clients for successfully accomplishing many challenging programs. We are always striving for the most reliable, efficient and custom-oriented service to accelerate diverse preclinical research projects.

The advantages of non-human primates (NHPs)

As is known, non-human primates (NHPs) exhibits a lot of similarities with human beings in physiological and behavioral characteristics. They are considered as the most appropriate models for understanding the human biological process in many cases. NHPs can be used to understand the normal or abnormal biophysical structure and function, as well as to determine the efficacy of many medical treatments/interventions.

Chronic Renal Failure (CRF) Model

What is chronic renal failure (CRF)?

Renal disease refers to a general disease status when the kidneys are damaged and can no longer remove wastes and extra water from the blood. Chronic renal failure (CRF), or chronic kidney disease (CKD), is characterized by the progressive loss of kidney function. Different from acute renal failure (ARF), which can have a rather quick/sudden occurrence, CRF often evolves gradually over weeks, months, or even years until the kidneys stop functioning finally. Some potential causes of CRF include:

  • Birth defects
  • Pyelonephritis
  • High blood pressure
  • Diseases associated with the immune system (e.g. glomerulonephritis, systemic lupus)
  • Acute kidney disease

CRF models provided by Creative Biolabs

Animal models of CRF provide an excellent opportunity to investigate disease-specific mechanisms, molecular pathogenesis, and assess potential novel therapies. CRF can be induced by surgical procedures, freezing, electric coagulation, or infusions of drugs/substances, etc. Each method has different advantages and disadvantages. Our team provides multiple options to establish the most appropriate CRF model according to specific requirements. A comprehensive set of QC measurements can also be provided:

  • Complete blood count (CBC)
  • Serum biochemistries (e.g. creatinine, urea nitrogen)
  • Urine electrolytes
  • Kidney biopsy
  • Histology for kidney

Creative Biolabs now provides world-class chronic renal failure modeling and research service to our valued customers. Our well-trained scientists are specialized in formulating and carrying out the most relevant plans to meet different needs and expectation. Notably, we are also very experienced in tailoring alternative NHP models including neurological disease, cardiovascular and metabolic disorders, liver disease, urogenital disease, immune system disease, etc. Please feel free to contact us for more discussions.
