Game of Zebrafish a major role in the study of hematopoiesis. These fish have the same sequential process of multilineage hematopoiesis as human beings, with the same different lineages. This Xenograft model has therefore provided scientists with many discernments, on the paths of the revelation of the lineage of the blood and blood disorders.
Cardiovascular disease

These fish are also used largely to investigate cardiovascular diseases because they have a similar embryonic structure of the heart as human embryos. In addition, Zebrafish has the advantage of being able to survive without proper heart circulation.
Oxygen inserts the embryo of the Zebrafish and reaches other tissues by passive diffusion. This unique feature helps the embryo become converted from the initial stages despite cardiovascular defects. An example of its use within this field is exploring the link between inflammation and myocardial infarction.
