Metabolic disease is a disorder comprising insulin resistance, glucose intolerance, dyslipidemia, hypertension and obesity, in particular abdominal obesity. Metabolic disease is one of the most important challenges facing public health and biomedical research, the prevalence of which is increasing worldwide as a result of changes in diet and lifestyle. People with metabolic disease have a higher risk of developing diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

In vivo models are important resources for studying the physiological mechanisms of metabolic disorders as well as preclinical translation, which may include the assessment of new treatments. In the study of metabolic disease, in vivo models have unique advantages over in vitro models, which are limited to investigation of isolated systems.

Creative Bioarray provides a number of rodent models in the areas of diabetes, obesity, dyslipidemia and NASH. These models will help to determine the pathophysiological basis of metabolic disorders and how the metabolic disorders increase the risk of other diseases.


  • Alloxan-induced type I diabetes - single injection of alloxan
  • STZ-induced type I diabetes - single injection of streptozotocin (STZ)
  • HFD/STZ-induced type II diabetes - high fat diet (HFD) and single injection of STZ
  • ob/ob mouse
  • db/db mouse
  • Zucker diabetic fatty (ZDF) rat


  • Diet-induced obesity (DIO)
  • Zucker fatty rat


  • Corn oil-induced dyslipidemia
  • Intralipid-induced dyslipidemia

Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH)

  • STZ-induced NASH
  • HFD/STZ-induced NASH
