Hypo-excitability was reported in the peri-infarct tissue following stroke, an effect counteracted by a blockage of α5-GABAA receptors in adult rodents. Our present study aims to evaluate the effect of a selective α5-GABAA receptor antagonist, S 44819, in stroke in juvenile animals. We have set up and characterized an original model of transient ischemic stroke in 28 day-old Sprague-Dawley rats (45-min occlusion of the middle cerebral artery by intraluminal suture). In this model, S 44819 (1, 3 and 10 mg/kg,

Invisible but devastating, diabetes is a chronic disease affecting more than 463 million adults worldwide; it results in more than 1.5 million deaths each year. The number of patients is expected to reach 700 million by 2045 - so treating diabetes and its complications really is a major health challenge! On this day of solidarity and awareness, ETAP-Lab would like to show its support for diabetic patients. At ETAP-Lab, we’re already involved in fighting back against diabetes — our work on developing

Please feel free to contact us to schedule a video conference. We’re hoping to meet you soon!

We'd like to take the opportunity, on World Alzheimer's Day, to revisit the models ETAP-Lab makes available to the scientific community for use in the search for new therapies to fight this disease.   Building on strong neurosurgery and behavioural analysis expertise, ETAP-Lab has developed a new model of Alzheimer's disease, using human beta-amyloid peptide oligomers (hABO). Derived from a unique know-how, hABOs induce reproducible memory deficits in the elderly mouse, correlated with alterations in neurobiological markers characteristic of AD. In comparison

Atopic dermatitis is a skin condition affecting 4% of the population worldwide. It affects all age groups, regardless of sex. Over the past 30 years, the number of diagnosed cases in industrialised countries has tripled. Characterised by dry skin and severe pruritus, this pruritic dermatosis causes major discomfort, leading to itching and even skin lesions. Other than by recourse to treatments such as the corticosteroids used to reduce skin inflammation in atopic dermatitis, pruritus management continues to be a challenging task, even

ETAP-Lab will present its new Alzheimer's model in the aged mouse at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference, to be held in Denver (USA) from 26 to 30 July 2021. Our expert, Dr. Ahmad Allouche, will be there to answer your questions about our in vitro and in vivo models of Alzheimer's disease, based on the use of human A-Beta 1-42 oligomers. Our poster entitled "New Alzheimer models for drug screening, based on improved human amyloid beta (1-42) oligomer preparations" (number #54152), presents
