A live recombinant Pichinde virus (PICV) vector vaccine is safe and effective against turkey arthritis reovirus (TARV), according to a recent study led by Sunil Mor, BVSc & AH, MVSc, PhD, and Hinh Ly, PhD. Vaccination may be an effective way to reduce lameness induced by TARV in flocks, but there are currently no commercial TARV vaccines available.

Mild gastrointestinal erosions are more common in dogs treated with anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) over a long period of time than in control dogs with chronic gastrointestinal (GI) disease, according to a recent study led by Tracy Hill, DVM, DACVIM, PhD, DECVIM.

Building on previous success, University of Minnesota researchers Maxim Cheeran, BVSC, MVSc, PhD, and Jian-Ping Wang, MS, PhD, are collaborating with Aerosol Devices, Inc. (ADev) in Fort Collins, Colo., to develop a breathalyzer that would detect SARS-CoV-2 directly from exhaled breath.

A team of researchers from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine investigating the transmission of a live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV) found that vaccinated pigs can only spread low levels of influenza A to non-vaccinated pigs — through both direct and indirect contact — for up to six days after vaccination.

The DNIC is proud to recognize a few individuals involved with equine or large animals via veterinary medicine, sportsmanship, or husbandry.
