A systematic review of oropharyngeal dysphagia models in rodents

Kim HN, Kim JY (2021) A systematic review of oropharyngeal dysphagia models in rodents. Int J Environ Res Public Health 18(9):4987. doi: 10.3390/ijerph18094987

Objective: To organize the rodent models of oropharyngeal dysphagia reported to date.

Summary: Applying and analyzing the treatment in rodent models of dysphagia induced from various causes is an essential process to develop symptom-specific treatments. The results of this study provide fundamental and important data for selecting appropriate animal models to study dysphagia.

Usage: CTB-SAP treated rats exhibited targeted hypoglossal motor neuron death; decreased hypoglossal motor output; and swallowing and lick deficits.
