The ease of modifying purified diets, with amino acids as the protein source, allowed to make such formulations that could be used in lieu of complex procedures like myeloablation and could make the process of HSCs engraftment an easy procedure in rodents.Read more
Research Diets’ own Dr. Laura Griffin publishes paper showing that use of genetically diverse mouse strains may help translatability to humans
Despite evidence suggesting that natural products protect against obesity and metabolic syndrome in cell culture and animal models, results oftentimes do not translate in human clinical trials. One possible explanation for this finding is the...

In a landmark paper published in Cell Metabolism in September of 2018, John Speakman, (with joint appointments at University of Aberdeen and the Chinese Academy of Sciences) et al., studied the effects of 29 different diets that varied in...
Our invited paper entitled “Effects of Rodent Diet Choice and Fiber Type on Data Interpretation of Gut Microbiome and Metabolic Disease Research” is available online as an epub and was made open access by Current Protocols in Toxicology.
In last month’s Nature Medicine, Dan Engber wrote a nice article about the efforts to standardize high-fat diets to make rodents obese, and the pitfalls of a ‘one diet fits all’ approach. He also points out the lack of attention that is generally...
