New research demonstrates the potential for a family of viruses in African primates to jump the species barrier to humans.
More than 30 participants from multiple universities helped paint sections of a reduced-scale rendering of a community mural project, led by artist Tia Richardson at the Veterinary Medicine Building on May 20.
The researchers are now testing the newest sub-variants of omicron, including BA.2.12.1, which recently began spreading quickly in New York state.
The clinic is one of about a dozen animal hospitals in the state to offer the vaccine and part of a growing effort nationally to encourage rabbit owners to seek vaccination.
Jorge Osorio, an expert in epidemiology, virology and vaccines, has been named the next director of GHI, which applies research, education and outreach to advance equitable and sustainable health in Wisconsin and around the world.
Most human diseases don’t start — or end — with our species. Only by looking at the whole picture can scientists like UW–Madison's Tony Goldberg uncover the full story of viruses on Earth.
A UW study is asking dog owners what their pets like to watch — a nontrivial question that could lay the groundwork for developing better canine eye tests.
The Wisconsin Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory is prepared to assist with a surge of testing that will help prevent the spread of the virus as birds and eggs are moved around the state, and researchers are also developing a vaccine to prevent future outbreaks.
The platform allows veterinarians to request, send and review the medical records of patients who have received care from other clinics through a business-to-business software model.
The research team tested seven monoclonal antibodies, three combinations of antibodies, and three antiviral treatments against the BA.2 variant.
The findings offer guidance to physicians to help mitigate risk to children of a significant number of expectant parents.
“With all the strides being made in the veterinary oncology field increasing treatment options for pets, our goal is to make these lifesaving treatments available to more pets and their pet parents.”
UW Veterinary Medicine professor Ruthanne Chun receives 2021 LaMarr Billups Community-University Engagement Award
In 2014, Chun co-founded Wisconsin Companion Animal Resources, Education and Social services (WisCARES), a community veterinary clinic for low income and homeless families.
The findings, the researchers say, suggest that previous SARS-CoV-2 infection and vaccines that are based on earlier strains of the virus still provide protection against infection with gamma.
The results offer a foundation for research into treating the often-overlooked cognitive impairments of bipolar disorder, such as memory loss, and add to a growing understanding of how the biochemistry of the brain affects health and disease.
