PSAH Useful Links for Animal Research

-Although produced by supplier of Gettingen minipigs, the newsletters are filled with important data findings and experimental considerations associated with the use of the minipig as a preclinical species.

-One Health is the integrative effort of multiple disciplines working locally, nationally, and globally to attain optimal health for people, animals, and the environment. This link provides perspectives on the "One Health" initiative, as well as additional resources of interest.

-AAPS blog:With the belief that a picture is worth a thousand words, please go to the Human and Veterinary Therapeutics resources page for examples of Web-based lectures, news briefs, and videos that exemplify some of these shared challenges.

-LAMHDI, the initiative to Link Animal Models to Human DIsease, is designed to accelerate the research process by providing biomedical researchers with a simple, comprehensive Web-based resource to find the best animal models for their research. 

-This site, hosted by the the National Institute of Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) in the Netherlands provides a comprehensive database that provides freely available information on physiological, anatomical and biochemical parameters, such as organ weights, pH, CYP activities, GST, ventilation rates, and Escherichia coli counts across a variety of animal species. 

-The Mouse Models of Human Cancer Consortium (MMHCC) has created a Murine Cancer Models Database that includes much more comprehensive information about the making of models, their genetic description, histopathology, derived cell lines, associated images, carcinogenic agents, therapeutic trials, and links to associated publications. 

-The Cytochrome P450 Homepage is a universal resource for nomenclature and sequence information on cytochrome P450 (CYP) genes associated with a wide range of animal and plant species.
