Tamoxifen diets

Tamoxifen diets

Diets with tamoxifen activate CreER

Several references cite use of tamoxifen-containing diets for models with Cre under the control of a mutated estrogen receptor. Envigo Teklad diets makes a variety of tamoxifen-containing diets customized to meet your research needs. We also make a variety of doxycycline-containing diets for tet regulated systems. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to consult a nutritionist.

Teklad stocks tamoxifen and tamoxifen citrate

Tamoxifen is added to the diet as a tamoxifen-sucrose mixture. Users are encouraged to use the stocked supply. However, Teklad will continue to work with customer prepared mixes. If you choose this option, please consult a nutritionist for additional information about preparing and sending the mixture.

Users are encouraged to select from the stocked options below supply readily available to ship within days.

Teklad offers diet with USP grade tamoxifen and tamoxifen citrate

1 Assumes 20-25 g body weight and three-four g intake
2 Tamoxifen citrate is 66% tamoxifen
3 Referred to as TAM400/CreER in Europe (TD.55125 )

Please add 5-10 day lead time for irradiated diets; minimum 3 kg orders are required for stocked and customized items.

These diets all have tamoxifen premixed with ~five percent sucrose as a palatability enhancer; however, feed aversion may still occur. If intake is a problem, see below for advice.

Teklad Global 2016 — base diet in these examples — is only one of several minimal phytoestrogen diets Teklad produces. Consult a nutritionist about use of other base diets.

Key planning information

  • Minimum order quantity is three kg, sufficient for feeding ~20 mice for one month
  • Store diet refrigerated and plan to use within six months
  • Typical lead time is two weeks (four weeks if irradiated)
  • Irradiation (optional) minimal dose of 20 kGy (Must be requested at time of order)
  • To place an order: contact Teklad Customer Service at 800.483.5523 or initiate order online

Mice need time to adjust

Plan for:

  • Initial reduction in food intake and weight loss
  • Daily observation of animal tolerance — consult your IACUC for monitoring metrics
  • Intervene when necessary

Other researchers have the following advice

If intake seems to be a problem:

  • Determine if a lower dose is effective for your model by conducting a tamoxifen dose feeding trial
  • Gradually acclimate mice by mixing tamoxifen-containing pellets with regular feed pellets
  • Wet the food, then place in a dish inside the cage (requires daily replacement)
  • Feed tamoxifen diet on weekdays, regular diet on weekends
  • Alternate weeks (two weeks on tamoxifen diet, one week off) for longer treatments

Safe handling of tamoxifen diets

  • Tamoxifen is a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM) meaning it can repress actions of estrogen or have pro-estrogen effects
  • Usual dose for therapeutic effects in humans is 20 mg/day. Tamoxifen diets for rodents typically contain ~one to two mg/pellet
  • Accidental tamoxifen exposure can be minimized by using typical lab precautions of lab coat, gloves, and mask when handling the diet.
  • Your chemical safety department should be contacted for additional institution specific guidelines for handling and disposal of tamoxifen containing diets.

Key points from literature

  • Length of treatment varies from one to two weeks1,2,5,6,7,8 to one to two months3,4,8
  • Pure tamoxifen1,5,8 and tamoxifen citrate1,2,3,4,6,7 are both effective
    Usual tamoxifen doses are ~40-80 mg per kg body weight per day
  • Typical inclusion for pure tamoxifen is 250 mg8 or 500 mg1,5 and for tamoxifen citrate is 400 mg per kg diet1,2,3,4,6,7
  • Initial weight loss of ten % is reported1,2,4,7,8, associated with reduced food intake2
  • Subsequent recovery of body weight after returning to regular diet may be compromised by gene inactivation2,7

Rodent diets

Rodent diets

As a researcher, you want to have as much control as possible over what goes into your study animals. At Envigo, we understand that. That is why we developed Teklad Global Rodent Diets® .

Teklad Global Rodent Diets® are a special integrated range of vegetarian laboratory rodent diets developed to be nutritionally complete for various life stages from breeding through long-term maintenance. Global rodent laboratory diets contain levels of protein, energy, vitamins and minerals that are more appropriate to the needs of modern biomedical research studies.

Furthermore, in global rodent diets particular attention has been placed on avoiding, as far as practical, ingredients that are reported to have adverse confounding effects on experimental results. This has resulted in a range of Teklad rodent laboratory diets that contain:

  • No fish meal
  • No meat meals or meat by-products
  • No alfalfa meal
  • No soybean meal or reduced levels
  • No animal fat

By excluding animal by-products, the presence of nitrosamines (a potential carcinogen) is avoided. Exclusion of alfalfa meal reduces chlorophyll, improving optical imaging clarity. Reduction or removal of soybean meal, together with elimination of alfalfa meal, minimizes levels of naturally-occurring phytoestrogens. Phytoestrogens interact with endogenous estrogens and potentially can affect studies in many research areas. Read more about this in these pieces:

Traditional rodent diets were formulated decades ago based on understanding of rodent nutrition, ingredients, and diet manufacturing at the time. While traditional diets will supply the known nutrient needs of your laboratory animals, we recommend you consider the use of a diet from our newer global diet line for your modern research needs.

Teklad Global Rodent Diets® are modern formulas designed to reduce research variables. Specifically, these diets contain more appropriate nutrient levels, and limit or exclude ingredients that are reported to have effects on a wide variety of research endpoints.

  • Lower, more appropriate protein levels can improve survival and reduce morbidity
  • Vegetarian with no nitrosamines (a potential carcinogen)
  • Formulated to exclude alfalfa meal, greatly improving fluorescent imaging clarity
  • Formulated to exclude or lower soybean meal, thus minimizing the presence of isoflavones, the primary type of phytoestrogen found in lab animal diets
  • Extruded rodent diets dramatically reduce clumping and hardness after autoclaving (2018SX , 2019S , 2020SX ), and in general result in less diet waste and cleaner cages

Teklad rodent diets are natural-ingredient diets specifically formulated to provide the proper balance of all known nutrients considered essential for the growth, maintenance, and reproduction of rats, mice, gerbils and hamsters. These diets conform to the nutrient requirements for rodents established by the National Research Council (1995).

Teklad rodent diets provide uniform nutrition. They are fixed-formula diets designed to minimize the nutrient variances which otherwise could occur if the ingredient composition of a diet were altered from one batch to the next.

Protein is supplied primarily by plant sources. Supplemental amino acids are added to provide the proper amount and balance of essential amino acids. All rodent diets are fortified with vitamins and minerals to help support the regulation of body fluids and the proper functioning of body systems to ensure the adequate growth, maintenance, and reproduction of research rodents. Autoclavable diets are supplemented with additional vitamins to compensate for losses that occur during autoclaving. Since our diets are nutritionally complete and balanced, it is not necessary to add dietary supplements.

There is no definitive point where one is able to predict when a specific diet will spoil or become deficient in one or more nutrients. The common guideline of a six month shelf life is based on longstanding practice in North America. In Europe and Asia, differences in local practices and regulatory oversight have led to Teklad standard natural ingredient diets being routinely used out to nine months and sometimes 12 months post-manufacture. This practical experience, along with literature support and vitamin testing over time, gives us confidence that these diets continue to support animal health and study integrity out to at least nine months post-manufacture. Please refer to your institution for guidance if you are unsure of local policies.

Recommended storage conditions:

  • Cool and dry; at or below 70 degrees fahrenheit with humidity ideally below 50%, but up to 65% is acceptable
  • Clean and free of pests
  • In original packaging or in a container that prevents continuous exposure to light and minimal exposure to air

Standard natural ingredient rodent diets are complete diets for rats, mice, gerbils and hamsters, that should be allowed ad libitum access to the diet. Fresh water should be available at all times.

Considerations when choosing a base diet

  • Teklad Global Rodent Diets® like 2018 do not contain alfalfa and are thus ideal if your work requires an alfalfa-free diet for fluorescent imaging, If further imaging clarity is needed, we can make purified diets with doxycycline.
  • Teklad global 2018 (base diet in examples above) contains a moderate amount of soybean meal, a source of phytoestrogens. The table below includes several options of minimal phytoestrogen diets with the most common doxycycline concentration of 625 mg/kg diet. For other concentrations contact us. For additional phytoestrogen information, see our list of phytoestrogen references.

1 Doxycycline hyclate is ~87% doxycycline

Advantages of diet delivery of doxycycline

  • Typically the same doxycycline concentration can be used in diet as in water. Lower concentrations of doxycycline may be adequate with 625 mg/kg diet being the most common concentration.
  • Diet offers protection from light. Water may have to be given in dark-colored or foil-wrapped bottles
  • Diet is typically changed once per week. Water may need to be changed every few days
  • Diet delivery may also reduce risk of dehydration and preclude the need to give with sucrose (Cawthorne et. al. 2007)

Key planning information

  • Minimum order quantity is 3 kg, sufficient for feeding ~20 mice for one month
  • Store diet refrigerated and plan to use within six months
  • Typical lead time is two weeks (four weeks if irradiated)
  • TD.01306 typically ships within 2 days non-irradiated or 2 weeks with irradiation
  • Irradiation (20 – 50 kGy) is optional, and must be requested at time of order

Safe handling of doxycycline diets

  • Doxycycline is a tetracycline class antibiotic.
  • Usual dose for therapeutic effects in humans is 100-200 mg/day.
  • Doxycycline diets for rodents typically contain ~2 mg/pellet.
  • Accidental doxycycline exposure can be minimized by using typical lab precautions of lab coat, gloves, and mask when handling the diet.
  • Your chemical safety department should be contacted for additional institution specific guidelines for handling and disposal of doxycycline containing diets.
