Rabbits have become a valuable experimental model for some of the following reasons. They are phylogenetically closer to primates than rodents and offer a more diverse genetic background than inbred and outbred rodent strains. In addition, rabbit genomics and proteomics have recently advanced with several transgenic lines that are characterized and readily available.

Normal synovial fluid is clear, pale yellow, viscid, and does not clot. It is believed to have two main functions:  to aid in the nutrition of articular cartilage by serving to distribute nutritional substances, such as glucose, and to assist in the mechanical function of joints by lubrication of the articulating surfaces. In joint diseases, such as arthritis, the synovium of the joint is the primary place where inflammation occurs.
