Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the body’s immune system attacks healthy tissue.
NOD-scid IL2rgnull (NSG) and NOD-Rag1null IL2rgnull (NRG) mice support heightened levels of engraftment with human cells and tissues. These engrafted mice allow research on human disease processes without putting individuals at risk.
