UUO Model

The Unilateral Ureteral Obstruction (UUO) model is widely used as a model for renal fibrosis. This model demonstrates the pathological features of chronic kidney disease such as interstitial fibrosis, tubular atrophy, and inflammatory cell infiltration. It is also suitable for in-vivo screening tests for renal fibrosis due to the short test duration of two weeks.
