Fibre digestibility, abundance of faecal bacteria and plasma acetate concentrations in overweight adult mares.
The purpose of the present study was to compare digestibility of grass hay, faecal and plasma volatile fatty acid (VFA) concentrations, and faecal bacterial abundance in overweight and moderate-condition mares. Five ...
Survey of owner motivations and veterinary input of owners feeding diets containing raw animal products
Background The practice of feeding of diets containing raw animal products (RAP) to pets (dogs and cats) is discouraged by veterinary organizations and governmental public health organizations. Nevertheless, the practice ...
Characterization of basal and lipopolysaccharide-induced microRNA expression in equine peripheral blood mononuclear cells using Next-Generation Sequencing
The innate immune response to lipopolysaccharide contributes substantially to the morbidity and mortality of gram-negative sepsis. Horses and humans share an exquisite sensitivity to lipopolysaccharide and thus the horse ...
A Set of Grand Challenges for Veterinary Regenerative Medicine
(Frontiers in Veterinary Science, 2016-03-04)
“Regenerative medicine” refers to therapies that aim to restore normal form and function using the body’s own biological machinery, such as stem cells and biologics. The use of regenerative medicine to treat injury and ...
TALEN-Mediated Modification of the Bovine Genome for Large-Scale Production of Human Serum Albumin
As an initial step towards creating genetically modified cattle as a biopharming source of recombinant human serum albumin (rHSA), we report modification of the bovine albumin (bA) locus by transcription activator-like ...
Effects of Experimental Sarcocystis neurona-Induced Infection on Immunity in an Equine Model.
Sarcocystis neurona is the most common cause of Equine Protozoal Myeloencephalitis (EPM), affecting 0.5-1% horses in the United States during their lifetimes. The objective of this study was to evaluate the equine immune ...
