Taconic Biosciences adiciona novo modelo de Sistema Imunológico Humanizado (HIS) ao seu portfólio para pesquisa em imuno-oncologia

O novo modelo huNOG-EXL EA amplia substancialmente as janelas de estudo

RENSSELAER, NY, Jan. 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — A Taconic Biosciences, líder global no fornecimento de soluções de modelo de animais para a descoberta de medicamentos, anuncia o lançamento do camundongo huNOG-EXL EA (Acesso Precoce) de sistema imunológico humanizado (humanized immune system – HIS). Este produto expande o portfólio HIS amplamente utilizado da Taconic. O huNOG-EXL EA estende substancialmente a janela de estudo durante a qual um modelo de camundongo HIS de linhagem mieloide pode ser usado com sucesso.

Os modelos huNOG-EXL da Taconic trabalham com células mieloides e linfoides humanas, tornando esses camundongos especialmente úteis para pesquisa imuno-oncológica e outras aplicações imunológicas relacionadas. Com a vida útil mais longa de qualquer modelo HIS de suporte a mieloide, o modelo huNOG-EXL original (agora chamado huNOG-EXL SA, ou Acesso Padrão) tem sido aplicado com sucesso na pesquisa pré-clínica de descoberta de medicamentos desde 2016. O modelo huNOG-EXL SA é entregue depois uma etapa de controle de qualidade 10 semanas após o enxerto. O feedback dos usuários sugere que aplicativos de pesquisa que exigem cronogramas de estudo particularmente longos ou importação para regiões com longos períodos de quarentena, apresentam obstáculos experimentais e logísticos que podem limitar a utilidade do modelo de Acesso Padrão (Standard Acess – SA).

O novo modelo huNOG-EXL EA elimina esses desafios, fornecendo acesso a camundongos huNOG-EXL logo após o enxerto, estendendo a janela de estudo útil. Isso torna o huNOG-EXL EA ideal para o enxerto de tumores de crescimento lento, paradigmas de tratamento mais longos ou várias personalizações de estudo. O acesso precoce a um modelo de linhagem mieloide estendido também é vantajoso para pesquisadores que lidam com quarentenas na importação de modelo, consumindo uma porção significativa da janela de estudo útil para esses camundongos. Como o modelo huNOG-EXL EA é enviado antes de uma etapa de QC de enxerto ser possível, o enxerto é feito com células de doadores previamente validados para que o enxerto seja bem-sucedido, reduzindo suas falhas.

“O modelo huNOG-EXL EA atende às necessidades científicas críticas dos investigadores que realizam pesquisas de imuno-oncologia ou estudam outras doenças relacionadas à imunidade”, disse o Dr. Michael Seiler, vice-presidente de produtos comerciais da Taconic. “Após pesquisa e desenvolvimento extensos, juntamente com o rigoroso teste beta com diversos parceiros da indústria, a Taconic tem o prazer de oferecer agora o novo modelo que expande a utilidade deste camundongo humanizado original.”

Para mais informação sobre o modelo huNOG-EXL EA da Taconic, ligue para 1-888-TACONIC (888- 822- 6642) nos EUA, +45 70 23 04 05 na Europa, ou envie email para

Taconic Biosciences ajoute un nouveau modèle de système immunitaire humanisé (SIH) à son portefeuille de recherche en immuno-oncologie

Le nouveau modèle huNOG-EXL EA étend considérablement les fenêtres d’étude

RENSSELAER, N.Y., 22 janv. 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Taconic Biosciences, un leader mondial dans la fourniture de solutions de modèles animaux pour la découverte de médicaments, annonce le lancement de la souris à système immunitaire humanisé (SIH) huNOG-EXL EA (Early Access). Ce produit étend le portefeuille largement utilisé de Taconic. huNOG-EXL EA prolonge considérablement la fenêtre d’étude au cours de laquelle un modèle de souris à SIH avec lignée myéloïde peut être utilisée avec succès.

Les modèles huNOG-EXL de Taconic prennent en charge les cellules myéloïdes et lymphoïdes humaines, ce qui rend ces souris particulièrement utiles pour la recherche en immuno-oncologie et d’autres applications immunitaires. Avec l’allongement de la durée de vie de tout modèle à SIH soutenant les cellules myéloides, le modèle huNOG-EXL original (désormais appelé huNOG-EXL SA, ou Standard Access) est appliqué avec succès dans la recherche préclinique sur la découverte de médicaments depuis 2016. Le modèle huNOG-EXL SA est fourni après une étape de contrôle qualité à 10 semaines après la greffe. Les commentaires des utilisateurs suggèrent que les applications de recherche nécessitant des délais d’étude particulièrement longs ou une importation dans des régions avec de longues périodes de quarantaine présentent des obstacles expérimentaux et logistiques qui peuvent limiter l’utilité du modèle Standard Access (SA).

Le nouveau modèle huNOG-EXL EA supprime ces difficultés en donnant accès aux souris dotées du modèle huNOG-EXL peu après la greffe, ce qui étend la fenêtre d’étude utile. Cela rend l’huNOG-EXL EA idéal pour la greffe de tumeurs à croissance lente, pour des paradigmes de traitement plus longs ou diverses personnalisations d’étude. Un accès précoce à un modèle de lignée myéloïde étendue est également avantageux pour les chercheurs confrontés à des quarantaines d’importation de modèles, qui autrement consommeraient une part significative de la fenêtre d’étude utile pour ces souris. Comme le modèle huNOG-EXL EA est expédié avant qu’une étape de contrôle qualité de la greffe ne soit possible, il est fabriqué à l’aide de cellules de donateurs précédemment validées pour bien greffer afin de réduire le risque de défaillances de greffe.

« Le modèle huNOG-EXL EA répond aux besoins scientifiques critiques des chercheurs qui mènent des recherches en immuno-oncologie ou étudient d’autres maladies immunitaires », a déclaré le Dr Michael Seiler, vice-président des produits commerciaux chez Taconic. « Après avoir mené une recherche et un développement approfondis, ainsi que des tests bêta rigoureux avec plusieurs partenaires de l’industrie, Taconic est ravie d’offrir désormais le nouveau modèle et d’étendre l’utilité de cette souris humanisée unique. »

2021 AFCON: Covid hits Comoros before crunch Cameroon clash

Comoros face a goalkeeping crisis before the biggest game in the country’s history on Monday.

The tournament debutants play hosts and five-time champions Cameroon in Yaounde on Monday, but their camp has been hit by 12 positive Covid cases including coach Amir Abdou.

Seven players have been affected, including the two remaining fit keepers in the squad, Moyadh Ousseini and Ali Ahamada, with first-choice Salim Ben Boina out through injury.

“We will do everything in our power to find a solution,” said general manager El Hadad Himidi.

Himidi added: “It’s the coach and the only fit goalkeepers, so the situation is really complicated.”

The Confederation of African Football (Caf) ruled before the tournament that teams affected by Covid must play matches even if they have no recognised goalkeeper in their squad.

“A team will be required to play a match if they have a minimum of 11 players available who have tested negative,” stated Caf.

“In the event of the absence of a goalkeeper, another player from the team must replace the goalkeeper, provided the total number of available players is at least 11.

“In exceptional cases, the Organizing Committee of the Africa Cup of Nations will take the appropriate decision.”

Comoros will hope the injury suffered by Ben Boina could be considered an exceptional case, given the keeper had to leave the field after a red-card challenge by Ghana captain Andre Ayew in Tuesday’s Group C tie.

The islanders shocked the four-time champions, winning 3-2 to eliminate the Black Stars and take them into the last 16 as one of the four best third-placed sides.

The absence of coach Abdou will be a major loss to the side as he is the driving force and inspiration behind their success, having engineered a wholesale overhaul in the minnows’ fortunes since taking charge in 2014.

Standing in their way of a surprise run to the quarter-finals are African heavyweights Cameroon, who have been in good form so far, with captain Vincent Aboubakar boasting five goals from the three group games.
