Newcastle Resistant Poultry

first_imgThe team, which includes Steven Stice and Franklin West in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and Claudio Afonso at the Southeast Poultry Research Laboratory of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service, used a technology platform called shRNA — single strands of RNA that fold back on themselves — to selectively stop the production of nucleic acids that cause disease, such as the Newcastle disease virus. “We’ve taken many years to prove that this technology is viable,” he continued, “and we’re now ready to expand our work to the next stage.” The research team’s tooling process for enhancing disease resistance, published recently in the Journal of the International Alliance for Biological Standardization, is potentially a much better way of disease protection than vaccination because it introduces permanent genetic resistance, which is transmittable to a bird’s offspring, the researchers said. In contrast, many vaccines provide protection for a given period of time and must be re-administered periodically. Shipping disease-resistant chickens produced here in the U.S. could be the best possible solution for many countries, Stice said. “Ultimately, you could have birds that are both avian influenza resistant and Newcastle disease virus resistant,” said West, an assistant professor in the animal and dairy science department. “Theoretically, you may never have to vaccinate again.” “With this technology, we can target specific regions used by the Newcastle disease virus that are critical for its survival,” said Stice, a Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar and director of the Regenerative Bioscience Center. “Preventing these lethal viruses from replicating in individual chickens may in the end reduce the overall level of virus transmission from one chicken to the next.” Organized distribution of vaccine products can also present problems, especially in countries where farmers may not have a refrigerator or other means to store the vaccines at the temperature needed to keep the vaccine alive. This is particularly true in rural areas where backyard flocks may be a farmer’s main source of income.center_img Newcastle disease is a worldwide problem and is caused by one of the most deadly of all viruses that spreads between birds. Exotic Newcastle virus, the most devastating form of the virus, has been eradicated in the U.S. and Canada. The milder forms of Newcastle are kept under control using vaccines. Multiple types of animals and diseases could be targeted. This technology could also be applied to avian influenza and swine flu. The study, “Delayed Newcastle disease virus replication using RNA interference to target the nucleoprotein,” is available at sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1045105615000275. The Regenerative Bioscience Center at the University of Georgia links researchers and resources, collaborating in a wide range of disciplines to develop new cures for the devastating diseases. With its potential restorative powers, regenerative medicine could offer new ways of treating diseases for which there are currently no treatments—including heart disease, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and stroke. The RBC is geared toward identifying regenerative solutions for numerous medical conditions that affect both animals and people. For more information, see www.rbc.uga.edu. Poultry disease is an international issue, especially when there is an outbreak close to home. However, it’s a particularly costly problem in developing countries. Developing animals to be resistant to disease may be one of the long-term solutions. University of Georgia researchers in the Regenerative Bioscience Center have spent the last four years gathering data that could make the process a reality.last_img read more

Tips for college seniors looking to enter the workforce during a pandemic

first_img“When the jobs do open, if you’re having a hard time when jobs do open, you have that person to call on and say, ‘Hey, remember me?'” said Lorenzetti. Despite being difficult, seniors are being encouraged to keep applying, especially within thriving fields. For those interested in other industries, Lorenzetti suggests looking for jobs that could be used as a stepping stone. “I concentrated in medical devices and the medical device industry is booming because respirators and ventilators and all those things are medical devices,” said Tacopina. If things aren’t working out, seniors can fill this time with volunteering or taking online classes. So while the job market may not be ideal right now, many seniors are staying positive. “I was struggling. I was looking on LinkedIn and Glassdoor trying to find jobs. A lot of them would post a job and two days later take it down because they were on a hiring freeze,” said Tacopina. “They may have to cast a wider net and really think about looking and researching what fields are growing,” said Binghamton University Fleishman Center for Career and Professional Development director Denise Lorenzetti. “Some of the industries are actually thriving. You look at things like healthcare, technology, remote jobs from home, biotechnology, supply chain management.” The Fleishman Center is still offering its services, but virtually. Binghamton University student Nicole Tacopina is a senior graduating with a biomedical engineering degree who has been actively looking for jobs. But with the coronavirus being a major disruption to the economy, the job search could be tough. This time could also be used to build a network. VESTAL (WBNG) — Many college seniors are getting ready to enter the workforce. For more information, click here. “Especially your first job in general, it’s about building skills. There are jobs, there are internships out there, they just may have to be a little more creative,” said Lorenzetti. “The whole experience has been a roller coaster I would say but it’s been good and I’m hopeful that I’ll find something,” said Tacopina. “Showing people this was a hard time, but I was resilient, I was adaptable by doing these other things,” said Lorenzetti.last_img read more

NZ study: Dads get the baby blues, too

first_imgNZ Herald 16 February 2017Family First Comment: Study author Dr Lisa Underwood said that while maternal ante-natal and post-natal depression were recognised and known to be associated with poor outcomes for women and children, there had been little done to identify peri-natal depression symptoms in men.Pre- and post-natal depression has been studied exhaustively in mothers but a new study of 3500 Kiwi men has revealed how dads are also affected by the baby blues.Using participants from the longtitudinal Growing Up In New Zealand study, University of Auckland researchers discovered that 2.3 per cent of fathers experienced depression during their partners’ pregnancy and the figure climbed to 4.3 per cent nine months after their child was born.Fathers most at risk of depression symptoms either felt stressed or were in poor health, although post-natal depression was also influenced by relationship factors.Although paternal depression could not induce harm to the fetus, it could still affect the psychosocial and cognitive development of their children.The researchers behind the study, published todayThursday in the Journal of the American Medical Association Psychiatry, now hope to increase awareness among fathers about the risk of increased depression.READ MORE: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11801286last_img read more

Officer fired in the 2014 chokehold death of unarmed arrestee

first_imgThe New York Police Department has made the decision to fire the officer who is accused of fatally putting Eric Garner in a chokehold in 2014, while attempting to arrest him.Police Commissioner James O’Neill announced the firing Officer Daniel Pantaleo Monday, based on a recent recommendation of a department disciplinary judge.According to the report, officers were called to the scene in 2014 because Garner was suspected of illegally selling loose cigarettes.When Pantaleo arrived at the scene, he attempted to arrest Garner who was much bigger than him. Pantaleo reportedly used two approved restraint tactics on Garner before placing him in the chokehold which is banned by the NYPD. During that time, Garner could be heard crying out, “I can’t breathe.”Garner reportedly cried out at least 11 times before he fell unconscious.The medical examiner’s office later reported that the chokehold contributed to Garner’s death.Federal prosecutors decided not to charge Pantaleo in Garner’s death despite nationwide protest, but he was placed on suspension while awaiting the commissioner’s decision on whether he would continue with the police department or not.“It is clear that Daniel Pantaleo can no longer serve as a New York City police officer,” Commissioner O’Neill said during a press conference Monday.last_img read more
