Scientists Develop Transparent Mice

Scientists have developed a chemical treatment that turns mice transparent. One day researchers at the California Institute of Technology hope to use this as a way to study how disease flows through the human body.

The mice have to have to have their skin removed first, then the chemical is pumped through their blood vessels and spinal cord, then a detergent is injected in the mouse’s circulatory system and that results in clear internal organs.

Normally scientist study mouse organs by dissecting them but they hope this new method will result in being able to follow disease as it travels through the body and someday shed better light on and maybe cure things like epilepsy and Parkinson’s.
