The Oncopig Cancer Model as a Complementary Tool for Phenotypic Drug Discovery

The screening of potential therapeutic compounds using phenotypic drug discovery (PDD) is being embraced once again by researchers and pharmaceutical companies as an approach to enhance the development of new effective therapeutics. Before the genomics and molecular biology era and the consecutive emergence of targeted-drug discovery approaches, PDD was the most common platform used for drug discovery. This article covers how a transgenic pig model can offer a controlled and predictable platform for studying cancer and testing new therapies.
