In this way the sustained liberation of the vaccine or antigenic compound is assured, so that it remains active in the body of the animal over the period of at least six months”. The existing treatments possess a limited effect due to the necessity to constantly reapply the vaccine, a measure which will be unnecessary with this advance.
In addition, in her doctoral thesis, entitled “Micro- and nano-particles as helpers against brucellosis and ovine salmonella”, she developed a technique to maintain the effectiveness of existing products and avoid the denaturing and degradation which is suffered in the intestinal tract of sheep when vaccines are applied via the traditional oral method.
Infertility and mortality in sheep
This improvement in the treatment of brucellosis and ovine salmonella will mean an important advance in eliminating Brucella spp. and Salmonella Abortusovis, two bacteria which cause abortions in ovine livestock in Europe, as well as infertility in rams and mortality in lambs.
In addition, the researcher of the University of Navarra highlighted the utility of the vaccination as the most practical and economic means which can be applied in those zones where the disease is endemic, as is the case in Spain.

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.
Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
