Researchers from three University of Minnesota colleges, including the College of Veterinary Medicine Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences, and Scottish Rite for Children teamed up to determine if advanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques that detect the dynamics of water molecules could detect early-stage bone damage in Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease (LCPD). All bones need blood to function, and the human circulatory system is designed to deliver it.

Researchers in the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) recently identified specific B cells with the ability to neutralize porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS), one of the biggest threats to the global pork industry. In the United States, PRRS can cost pork producers nearly half a million dollars per year, and current vaccines provide limited protection against the virus that causes the disease, which is particularly good at mutating.
