The AS/AGU rat is a model of locomotor dysfunction with progressive disruption and degeneration of the nigrostriatal dopaminergic system.
The AS/AGU rat provides an exciting new model for the evaluation of new treatments for Parkinson’s disease. The AS/AGU rat is the only model in which degenerative events take place over a sufficiently long period of time to mimic human conditions and to allow the exploration of mechanisms of cell loss and the role of neuro-protectants and further evaluation of novel therapies It is characterised by wide gait, hind limb rigidity, whole body tremor, difficulties in initiating movement and a tendency to fall over when moving quickly. These animals display a Parkinsonian-like movement disorder which can be reversed by L-DOPA treatment.
Excellent and reliable model for the pre-clinical trial and evaluation of potential new treatments for Parkinson’s disease.

The University of Glasgow has developed Soluble Polymer Catalysts, using organocatalysts for chiral chemical production...
University of Glasgow scientists have borrowed techniques employed in the semi-conductor industry to pattern the surfaces of either hard or soft materials and render these surfaces less adhesive to cells.
Scientists at the University of Glasgow have pioneered a new sensor technology, Lab-in-a-Pill, that could have major impact on the cost and effectiveness of bowel cancer treatment.
The Thermoelectric Sensor technology is a Nano-Calorimetric Sensor which measures very small changes in temperature. The IP provides a route to making the most sensitive calorimetric measurements (with a resolution of 0.1 mK).
The technology, developed at the University of Aberdeen, relates to the MRI system which will cost significantly less than current equipment. Most existing magnetic resonance imagers are highly sophisticated, occupy a large amount of space and are costly to purchase and maintain. There are numerous...
