Animal Models in Dementia

To treat dementia it needs new drug compounds and animal models for guaranteeing safety and effectiveness of drugs. Major cause of dementia is genetics, dementia occur due to genetic factors for such dementias transgenic and gene targeted models are used. Animal models contribute as model organism similar to human i.e. homologous models showing exceptional results that matches conditions in dementia patients. The most commonly used animal models are transgenic mice model, zebra fish model, Drosophila melanogaster model. Drosophila melanogaster models are used in neuroimaging techniques. All these models immensely help in new research and discoveries of dementia related methods and drugs. A few global dementia conference arguments have indicated animal model’s significance in diagnosing pharmacological impacts.
  • Track 1-1 Transgenic mice model
  • Track 2-2 Rodent models
  • Track 3-3 Transgenic and gene targeted models in dementia
  • Track 4-4 Pharmacological validation in animal model of dementia
  • Track 5-5 Validation of dementia models employing neuroimaging techniques
  • Track 6-6 Drosophila melanogaster as a model organism for dementia
  • Track 7-7 Zebrafish as a model organism for dementia
  • Track 8-8 Lesion-induced vertebrate models of Alzheimer's Disease
  • Track 9-9 APP-based transgenic models
