Collagen Arthritis - Adjuvants
Collagen-induced arthritis (CIA) can be induced in certain strains of mice, rats, and non-human primates by immunization with type II collagen emulsified with adjuvant. To effectively induce CIA in animals, the type of adjuvant used for emulsifying collagen is a key element. Chondrex provides six types of Incomplete Freund’s Adjuvant (IFA) and Complete Freund’s Adjuvant (CFA) containing various amounts of M. tuberculosis to optimize the immunization condition for inducing CIA.

NOTE 1: IFA is used for inducing CIA in rats that are susceptible to CFA and develop Adjuvant- Induced Arthritis (AIA). The optimal concentration of M. tuberculosis for inducing CIA varies depending on the mouse strain and immunization schedule.
