ABSTRACT
Melasma, as a kind of melanosis, often occurs over the face of young and middle-aged women, which seriously affects the physical and mental health of patients. At present, it is believed that the occurrence of melasma is related to various factors such as ultraviolet radiation and changes in sex hormone levels in the body. However, the exact pathogenesis of melasma is still unclear and its clinical efficacy is not ideal. Therefore, it is of great clinical significance and social value to carry out basic researches on melasma diseases. Among them, the animal model of melasma acts as an important tool for studying melasma, and it is particularly important to clarify the pathophysiological mechanism of the occurrence and development of melasma. The common modeling methods include ultraviolet modeling, progesterone modeling and ultraviolet combined with progesterone modeling. However, there are still some problems in the practical application of animal models of melasma due to many influencing factors in the preparation of such animal models, and there is still a lack of a more complete and recognized model preparation scheme to this day, which reduces the success rate of model preparation and limits its application and popularization to some extent. In view of the key problems in the establishment and application of animal models of melasma, we comprehensively summarized the research status of the models from such aspects as experimental animals, modeling methods and model evaluation, and discussed the effects of different modeling methods and animal species, animal age and other factors on animal model of melasma by referring to and sorting out the recent literatures at home and abroad in recent years. This is to provide references for the preparation of more scientific, reasonable, economic and convenient animal models of melasma, lay a foundation for in-depth researches on the pathogenesis, prevention and treatment of melasma, and also provide reference for other animal model research.
