Knowledge is beautiful.
In other words, our researchers are finding
cost-effective alternatives that replace the
poultry industry’s past use of antibiotics and
protect the health of birds and people.
U of S researchers in the Western College of Veterinary
Medicine are working with partners to develop aerosol-based
synthetic bacterial DNA (CpG-ODN) that is non-infectious
and non-antibiotic but triggers an immune system
response in newly hatched chicks, protecting them
against common disease-causing agents.
