WRML. DAWBUTS NEWSLETTER – ANOTHER SOURCE OF INFORMATION (INCL THE HAEMONCHUS VACCINE) 27 Sept., 2012

To WormMail list (recipients (~400) undisclosed).

The Dawbuts Newsletter is another source of information in Australia on animal health matters, including of course one of the most important: worms.

This issue mentions briefly the Haemonchus vaccine trials currently occurring in Australia (Dr David Smith and colleagues (Moredun Institute, Scotland), in cooperation with Dr RB Besier (Dept Agriculture, WA) and others).

‘More news on that to be shared via WormMail as it becomes available.

I looked for information on the vaccine on the MLA website, but 5 minutes searching yielded nothing. (As good as MLA is, I often have trouble finding things on their website. Perhaps I am wired the wrong way).

However, within 30 seconds I found this at Moredun: http://www.moredun.org.uk/research/research-@-moredun/parasitic-worms/nematode-vaccines

In writing this, I have no conflicts of interest.

If you are wondering about the name ‘Dawbuts’, some of you will know Matt has a strong Japanese connection. ‘Dawbut(s)’ sounds like the Japanese word for ‘animals’ apparently.
