  • Sometimes pesticides are also used to kill vertebrate animals such as coyotes, Canis latrans , or prairie dogs, Cynomys spp. (ufl.edu)
  • A new oral vaccine against sylvatic plague is showing significant promise in the laboratory as a way to protect prairie dogs and may eventually protect endangered black-footed ferrets who now get the disease by eating infected prairie dogs, according to results by a USGS researcher at the USGS National Wildlife Health Center. (redorbit.com)
  • This exotic disease is usually deadly for black-footed ferrets and their primary prey, prairie dogs, resulting in local extinctions or regional population reductions. (redorbit.com)
  • USGS researcher Dr. Tonie Rocke, the lead researcher of the project, found that the prairie dogs that "ate" their vaccine were better protected from the disease than the ones who were injected with a vaccine. (redorbit.com)
  • These results, said Rocke, demonstrate that oral immunization of prairie dogs against plague provides significant protection from the disease, at least in the laboratory. (redorbit.com)

  • Selective breeding of rabbits began in the Middle Ages, when they were first domesticated as farm animals. (wikipedia.org)
  • Animal rights activists have opposed animal experimentation for non-medical purposes, such as the testing of cosmetic and cleaning products, which has resulted in decreased use of rabbits in these areas. (wikipedia.org)

  • Prevalent in Latin America, Chagas disease is a potentially life-threatening illness caused by the parasite T. cruzi , which is most commonly transmitted through insects known as "kissing bugs. (idri.org)
  • parasites
  • Caused by parasites transmitted through the bites of infected mosquitoes, malaria puts nearly 3.2 billion people - almost half of the world's population - at risk of disease. (idri.org)
  • vaccines
  • Conventional vaccine adjuvants such as oil-in-water emulsions or aluminum salts do not promote effective Th1-type cellular immune responses, which are critical for complex diseases lacking effective vaccines such as malaria, tuberculosis and amebiasis. (idri.org)
  • diagnostics
  • IDRI is pursuing a multi-faceted approach to eliminating Chagas disease, including developing diagnostics that screen the blood supply for T. cruzi , the parasite that causes Chagas disease, as well as diagnostic tests that effectively detect T. cruzi infection. (idri.org)
  • vaccine
  • While there are drugs available to treat the disease, there is a need for a malaria vaccine. (idri.org)
  • Development of a vaccine to protect those living in malaria-prone regions would greatly decrease sickness and death in these areas and may be the only way to make a large impact on the disease in some countries.IDRI is a leading developer of adjuvants that stimulate the immune system. (idri.org)
  • With a $400,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health and in partnership with the William Petri Lab at the University of Virginia, IDRI scientists are developing an innovative vaccine adjuvant nanoformulation that facilitates the ability to induce effective cellular immunity and mucosal antibodies to protect against the diarrheal disease amebiasis. (idri.org)
  • An oral vaccine, said Rocke, could be put into bait and delivered into the field without having to handle any animals, a process that is time-consuming, costly, and sometimes stressful for the animals. (redorbit.com)
