The pharmacokinetic profiles of pharmaceuticals will also vary widely among animals and humans: drug dosing cannot be extrapolated from one species to another simply based on body mass. Finally, as a reminder, many human genes have no orthologs in invertebrate species and, as such, the intracellular milieu in flies and worms may differ from humans in important ways. Scientists should be careful when extrapolating the results of molecular manipulations in invertebrates to human disorders. II. CHOICE OF THE APPROPRIATE ANIMAL MODEL The decision to utilize an animal model should be intimately incorporated with the choice of species.
