Oxazolone Induced Colitis Model

Inquiry

Oxazolone (4-ethoxylmethylene-2-phenyloxazol-5-one), a classical haptenating agent, is known to induce colitis in rats/mice that resemble human ulcerative colitis. Oxazolone induced colitis is characterized by hemorrhagic inflammation, augmented epithelial microulcerations and histopathological changes in the distal part of colon. In addition, this colitis is mediated by Th2 driven immune response. Creative Bioarray has many years of experience in the field of ulcerative colitis and provides pharmacodynamic services for customers to help them assess the efficacy of compounds and study the associated pathological mechanisms of ulcerative colitis through oxazolone induced coliti model.

Our capabilities

  • We utilize oxazolone induced colitis model to test the efficacy of drug candidates targeting IBD.
  • We assess the severity of colitis through clinical analysis including weight loss, diarrhea and occult blood in stool.
  • We evaluate various cytokines through IHC, ELISA, etc.

Assays available

  • Clinical analysis
  • Histopathological evaluation
  • Analysis of mRNA and protein levels
  • Cytokine/chemokine analysis
  • Immunohistochemistry

With extensive experience in the field of IBD, we are confident to help you to overcome any upcoming challenges. Our experts are fully capable of customizing our protocols and assays to meet your specific needs. With our help, we wish to facilitate your research with high efficiency.

Study examples

Effects of PSB-0777 (0.4 mg/kg/day) alone or in combination with CSC (1 mg/kg/day) or dexamethasone (1 mg/kg/day) on body weight in rats with oxazolone-induced colitis. Each column represents the mean ± S.E.M (n = 6). *p < 0.05, significant difference versus control group; ap < 0.05, significant difference versus oxazolone groupFigure. 1.
