Construction of Animal Model of A. Baumannii Infection

Acinetobacter baumannii is a gram-negative, opportunistic pathogen that has become a major concern in clinical settings due to its high prevalence of antibiotic resistance. This bacterium is responsible for causing a range of infections, including pneumonia, bloodstream infections, and urinary tract infections. In order to develop effective treatments for A. baumannii infections, Ace Infectious provides reliable animal models that can mimic the course of the infection in humans and customization and development of animal models of A. baumannii infection.

Animal Model of A. Baumannii Infection

Researchers use animal models of A. baumannii infection to better understand the pathogenesis of the infection, test the effectiveness of potential treatments, and evaluate the immune response of the host. The animal models generally involve injecting A. baumannii into the animals through various routes such as intranasal, intraperitoneal, or intravenous injection.

Suitable Animal Models for A. Baumannii Infection

Mice, rats, and rabbits are commonly used as animal models for A. baumannii infection. When selecting an animal model, factors such as genetic similarity to humans, ease of handling, and availability should be taken into consideration.

  • Mice are frequently chosen as animal models due to their convenience for conducting large-scale studies.
  • Rats are also a commonly used animal model and are suitable for studies requiring larger sample sizes.
  • Rabbits have also been used as animal models for A. baumannii infection. They are suitable for studying the course of the infection over a longer period of time.
