Ina Research, Japan SLC, and DNA Link join forces for the effective use of PDX mouse modelsFirst-ever production and commercial use in Japan July 2018, Ina Research, Japan SLC, and Korea’s DNA Link launched a joint project for the effective use of “PDX (Patient derived xenograft) mouse models,” in which patient-derived cancer cells are transplanted into the living body of a mouse for the development of pharmaceutical products. Japan SLC, a provider of laboratory animals, will produce PDX models using cancer cells of Asian patients provided by DNA Link, which owns the library of human cancer cells.Ina Research will then use the optimal PDX model to conduct drug efficacy tests
