A mouse model to study host immunity to this parasite is now developed. Preliminary experiments have demonstrated that infection with the parasite is able to protect both inbred and outbred mice 100% against a lethal challenge with Toxoplasma.

Inbred means先天的;

ourbred means远亲繁殖的。

they are not antonyms, right?

inbred and outbred

"Inbred" here means "produced by breeding from closely related mice". Thus, "inbred" and "outbred" are antonyms.
For more information, you can consult, for example, "Oxford Dictionary of English".
