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 billion dollars per year, and current vaccines provide limited protection against the virus that causes the disease, which is particularly good at mutating.

A team of researchers at the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) led by Molly McCue, DVM, MS, PhD, DACVIM, associate dean for research and professor in the Department of Veterinary Population Medicine at the CVM, recently received nearly $60,000 from the Morris Animal Foundation to investigate the genetic risks for equine pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction (PPID).
