Looking to improve their understanding of how to engage a dog’s immune system in detecting and destroying cancer cells, researchers at the University of Minnesota recently completed a lab based study exploring aspects of immune function at a cellular level.

Five of six horses under anesthesia had significantly greater blood-oxygen levels with a 15-degree table tilt compared to no tilt at all, a recent study from the University of Minnesota shows.

A group of College of Veterinary Medicine researchers aims to give scientists a more nuanced look at whether past infection by one genetic variant of PRRSV will provide immunity against another.

The most common cause of new infectious strains in both pigs and people is something called viral gene reassortment, which occurs when two different influenza viruses infect the same cell and then swap gene segments.  

Researchers have discovered what they believe to be the presence of two lymph nodes in the pelvic region of certain dogs that were previously undocumented in the animal.
