Innovative Medicines Initiative BTCure, in which Redoxis is a partner, has combined experience from laboratories
worldwide to establish standardised protocols for animal models of Rheumatoid Arthritis. Recently, a paper
describing the Pristane Induced Arthritis (PIA) model was published in PLOS ONE.
PIA in rats is a highly reproducible models suggest to reflect the early events of RA and are involving MHCII
restricted self-reactive T cells. This chronic relapsing model is one of few that fulfils the American College of
Rheumatology (ACR) classification criteria for RA.
