The use of mice as model organisms is the ability to model human disease in mice for research in biomedical science and psychology. One of the essential factors for using the model in research is its 95% genetic similarity with the humans. Hence, by studying mice model that have indications of diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and Alzheimer’s, the researchers can learn more about how these diseases might be treated in patients. Thus, growing use of mice for research purpose has been instrumental in achieving the goal and is expected to play an important role in augmenting the market size.

The concept of lab mice was introduced in 1920’s by Clarence Cook Little who believed that mice was the perfect model for studying cancer. Since cancer is an inheritable disease, Clarence Cook Little thought that mice were an ideal subject for his experiments due to their short life span and low maintenance. However, rats were the first mammalian species to be developed for use in the laboratory. Most in vivo assays were initially established and improved in the rat. Though, over the past thirty years, mice have rapidly overtaken rats as the preferred animal research model leading to increased mice model market growth.

The shift in popularity from rat to mice among scientists is chiefly owing to the initiation of the first transgenic mice in 1987 and development of targeted gene manipulation. Transgenic mice closely model the physiology and function of human diseases that further enable scientists to examine the effect of individual genes on disease. Also, from testing dietary supplements to formulating new cancer drugs, mice play a critical role in developing medical wonders. Mice are further used in sensory, aging, behavioural, nutrition and genetic studies along with testing anti-craving medication that could potentially end drug addiction. However, growing concern for the wellbeing of animals and rising awareness pertaining to animal rights will hinder the mice model industry growth.
