Human Target Knock-In Models

Evaluate human-specific immunotherapeutics in a well-characterized humanized drug target platform


Rapid and Cost Effective In Vivo Evaluation of Human Specific Biological Therapies 

Assessing human biological therapeutics requires specific preclinical models, featuring a range of human targets. We provide a panel of humanized drug target models expressing human immune checkpoints such as PD-1, PD-L1, and CTLA-4.

Our HuGEMM™ models allow the evaluation of specific human biological therapies in vivo, in mice with a fully functional murine immune system. Each model features a humanized drug target, with knock-in of a human target protein directly replacing its murine counterpart.

Humanized drug target models overcome species specificity issues of syngeneic models (which can only be used for surrogate anti-mouse checkpoint inhibitor testing), and are more cost-effective and rapid than fully humanized systems.

Currently available human single target knock-in models include: PD-1, PD-L1, CTLA-4, OX40, CD137, CD40, LAG3, and CD3E (transgenic), with double knock-in combination models also developed.

Mouse tumor cells engineered to express humanized targets (HuCELL™ models) are also available for key proteins such as PD-L1.

Fully Validated Models for Client Data Confidence

All of our HuGEMM and HuCELL models are well-characterized with target expression validation, immunotherapy benchmarking, and immunoprofiling data, providing assurance to your research needs.
