Researchers from University of Queensland are presently working over two new vaccine formulas, which they believe will help them improve health conditions of cattle in the region thereby serving the cattle industry of Queensland with major financial as well other benefits too.
If researcher's calculations are to be believed then both the vaccines will help fight the common diseases in cattle. The new formulas are estimated to save approx $340 million a year by the Queensland cattle industry.
UQ scientists have talked about both the vaccines in their recent announcements. Dr. Neena Mitter and Dr. Tim Mahony, are leading this research. Their team is dedicatedly focused to create vaccines and help cattle free from cattle tick infestations and all the major health problems and diseases that they can cause.
Dr. Mitter is a Senior Research Fellow at the Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation (QAAFI). She and her partners at the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN) have planned to use nanotechnology for the project of the multi-purpose vaccine.
"Our goal is to create a vaccine that will target three major animal-health problems: bovine viral diarrhoea virus (BVDV), bovine ephemeral fever (BEF) and cattle tick fever (Anaplasmosis)", Dr. Mitter said.
