Novel swine model developed for neurofibromatosis type 1

Swine increasingly preferred for biomedical research due to substantial physiologic and genetic homology with humans.

Recombinetics (RCI), a pioneer in gene editing and applied technologies in biomedicine and agriculture, announced the development of first-in-class gene-edited swine models for Neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF1), a multi-system human genetic disorder that causes tumors to develop along the nervous system.

Partially funded by the Children’s Tumor Foundation, these models are available for use in pre-clinical safety and efficacy testing of therapeutics for this debilitating genetic di
