Given the complexity and huge variety of human diseases and areas of medicine aimed at reducing or eliminating the negative consequences of various disorders in the normal functioning of complex systems, it is important to study these complex processes in model organisms. This article provides a short overview of human diseases and some applied areas of medicine in which some progress has been made through the study of model animals. In the future, new knowledge obtained on various animal models can be used to elucidate the etiology of disorders, with subsequent implementation in clinical medicine.
