Inficure Bio has developed a new mouse model, the N-IF model. Mice are used as model organisms for studying human biology due to the genetic and physiological conformity between mice and humans. N-IF mice are unique as they spontaneously develop pathological fibrosis, rather than it being induced. This pathological progress is therefore more natural and provides better and faster results.
