Chemotherapy-Induced Diarrhea

Diarrhea is one of the most common toxicities associated with chemotherapy, reported in up to 80% of patients. Uncontrolled CID can result in serious physical (dehydration, electrolyte imbalance, renal insufficiency, immune dysfunction, disruption of treatment, and even death), emotional (anxiety depression, caregiver strain) and economic (hospitalization) outcomes.  For these reasons, the effects of CID can be devastating to patients.

Chemotherapy-Induced Diarrhea (CID)

Biomodels’ Chemotherapy Induced Diarrhea (CID) model utilizes well validated dose concentrations and schedules of common chemotherapeutic agents to reproducibly induce diarrhea of known duration and severity in rats or mice.
