This document outlines the projects granted under the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 during 2014 that have a primary purpose of translational and applied research - other human disorders, including:
- respiratory disorders
- gastrointestinal disorders including liver
- immune disorders
- urogenital/reproductive disorders
The following projects were granted:
- gene transfer to small animals (gene therapy, genetic disease)
- development of assays to quantify gluten content in gluten-free foods (coeliac disease, gluten, monoclonal antibodies)
- zebrafish as a model of inherited renal disease (cystic kidney, cilial, treatment, pronephros)
- neurodevelopmental disorders: causes and treatment (autism, schizophrenia, genes, environmental risk factors, phenotyping)
- development of diagnostics and therapeutics for pancreatitis (pancreatitis; acute; chronic; diagnostics; therapeutics)
- models of airway inflammation (respiratory, inflammation, in-vivo, infection, PK/PD)
- novel therapies to treat autoimmune diseases (diabetes, multiple sclerosis, EAE, lupus, psoriasis)
- immunology studies to support drug discovery (immunology, inflammation)
- genetic models to study inflammatory diseases (inflammation, arthritis, infection, PAR-2, MKP-2)
- interventions against chlamydia (chlamydia, macaque, vaccine, efficacy, immunogenicity)
- mechanisms and treatments of renal transplant-related injury in mouse models (ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury, immunosuppressant-cyclosporine A (CsA), erythropoietin (EPO) derived new cyclic helix B surface peptide (CHBP), caspase-3 small interfering RNA (siRNA) and genetic modified mice)
- finding treatments for chronic kidney disease (kidney, fibrosis, CKD)
