Abstract

The main purpose of studying animal models of human disease is to gain insight into the underlying mechanisms of the disease. The recognition that chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a global health problem with no effective treatment has resulted in recent years in an explosion of new animal models of emphysema, a major component of COPD. The present work is a review of some selected animal models developed in recent years that in the eyes of the authors, may provide new insight into the pathogenesis of emphysema and COPD.
