Animal Administration

Two separate studies are conducted in cynomolgus Monkeys. In one, cynomolgus Monkeys (n=9 per sex/dose group) are orally administered Bardoxolone methyl at 5, 30, and 300 mg/kg once daily for 12 months, with an interim analysis at 6 months and a postdose recovery analysis 4 weeks after the final dose, in a GLP environment. In a second study, female cynomolgus Monkeys (n=6 for vehicle and n=12 for treatment) are administered Bardoxolone methyl (30 mg/kg per day), as above, once daily for 28 days.
Male C57BL/6J mice are used. After 1 week of acclimatisation to the institutional animal facility (temperature 22°C, 12 h light/dark cycle), the animals are divided into three groups (n=7): (1) mice fed a normal diet (LFD group); (2) mice fed a high-fat diet (HFD group) (40% fat); and (3) mice fed the same HFD and supplemented with BARD in drinking water (10 mg/kg body weight) (HFD/BARD group). The dose and oral administration of BARD are chosen. After 21 weeks, all mice are euthanized using CO2 asphyxiation. Part of the mesenteric fat mass in each animal is collected and stored at −80°C for Western blot analysis. Another portion of the mesenteric fat depot is fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde and embedded in paraffin for the determination of morphology and immunohistochemistry.

Help & FAQs
  • Do most proteins show cross-species activity?

    Species cross-reactivity must be investigated individually for each product. Many human cytokines will produce a nice response in mouse cell lines, and many mouse proteins will show activity on human cells. Other proteins may have a lower specific activity when used in the opposite species.
