Tasmanian devils have spawned two transmissible cancer lineages, named devil facial tumour 1 (DFT1) and devil facial tumour 2 (DFT2). We investigated the genetic diversity and evolution of these clones by analysing 78 DFT1 and 41 DFT2 genomes relative to a newly assembled, chromosome-level reference. Time-resolved phylogenetic trees reveal that […]
Rabbits occupy facets of veterinary medicine spanning from companion mammals, wildlife medicine, zoologic species, and research models. Therefore, analgesia is required for a variety of conditions in rabbits and is a critical component of patient care. Considerations when selecting an analgesic protocol in rabbits include timing of administration, route of […]
Background: Although burnout is often discussed as ‘present’ or ‘not-present’, the conceptual framework of an engagement-burnout continuum is more accurate and useful. Recognition of individuals’ transitional states of burnout also allows for earlier detection of issues and tailored interventions to address the full burnout spectrum.
In recent years there has been increased attention to the proposed entity of feline temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). Epileptic discharges in certain parts of the temporal lobe elicit very similar semiology, which justifies grouping these epilepsies under one name. Furthermore, feline TLE patients tend to have histopathological changes within the […]
East Asia’s goal of eradicating malaria by 2030 has been bolstered with more than $1.3 million in new funding for research to develop and deploy a world-first diagnostic test. Almost $1m of the funding from the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), will be used to develop the first […]
