CytospinMouse models of COPD

Mouse model of cigarette smoke-induced inflammation

Features:

  • Infiltration of macrophages and neutrophils in the lung,
  • Cytokine production and growth factor release.

We have previously shown efficacy of anticholinergics, in particular M3 selective anticholinergics, in this model.
