Xenografting
 Xenografting is the transplantation of
tissue from one species into another.
 Xenografting has been established as
benchmark studies in pre-clinical
cancer research.
 Typically, immunodeficient mice serve
as hosts for a wide variety of human
tumors, effectively serving as models
for human subjects.
 Xenografting a complete and accurate
study of tumor growth and the activity of
drug administration.
Xenografting tumor cells into
mice has advanced pre-clinical
cancer research significantly

Advantages of Xenografting
 Develop new therapeutic agents
Xenotransplantation is
the transplantation of
living cells, tissues or
organs from one
species to another.
quickly, efficiently and cost effectively
 Evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of
potential therapeutic agents
 Evaluate target compound activity
using in vivo system (human cells)
 Predict cytotoxicity of cancer drugs

Xenograft Study Pipelines
 Pipeline Xenograft Assay I
Our staff designs the study based on your project
requirements and objectives. Leveraging years of
knowledge and experience, Altogen Labs guarantees
an optimized experimental approach with respect to
mice selection, cell lines, inoculation, and dosage.
 Pipeline Xenograft Assay II
 Testing a Compound
The client provides a compound and cell line to be
researched. Our staff will establish a xenograft
animal model and test compound activity and how it
affects tumor growth.
 Pipeline Xenograft Assay III

 Testing a Cell Line
The client provides a cell line and our staff tests its
ability to establish tumor growth in standard
immunodeficient mice.

Compound Testing Objectives
 How does the test compound affect tumor growth?
 Does the test compound inhibit tumor invasion or metastasis?
 Localization of test compound in the tumor?
 Define drug characteristics:
Bioavailability
 Toxicity
 Efficacy
 Potency
 Is the cell line tumorigenic?
 Changes in gene expression upon treatment or gene
manipulation
 How does gene manipulation in a cell line tumor growth,
invasiveness, and metastasis

Xenograft studies can
rigorously characterize
candidate drug efficacy
and pharmacokinetic
properties

Basic Xenograft Study
Xenograft studies can be designed to:
 Identify lead compounds
 Optimize dose schedules
 Identify combination strategies

with tumor cells (unstaged) or once the tumors reach a certain
size (staged)
Assign mice to groups randomly or stratify them by body
weight, tumor size, disease factors, or any combination of
parameters
Administer test compounds by any of the following methods:
topically, IP, IV, SC, PO, high pressure tail vein, osmotic
minipumps (SC or IP), SC drug pellets, or in the food or water
Snap freeze harvested tumors or fix them for histology or
other specialized assays
Analyze blood chemistry at various times throughout the
study
