The spontaneously diabetic Torii (SDT) rat is a non-obese type 2 diabetes model established in 1997 by Dr. Masami Shinohara at the Research Laboratory, Torii Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., who found male animals that showed polydipsia, polyphagia, polyuria, and glucosuria among Sprague-Dawley rats raised for a long period. This strain was introduced to our company from Torii Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., and we started its production and supply as SDT/Jcl in 2005.
