Immunology in dolphins
Obtaining of various diagnostic kits to determine the presence of specific antibodies in combination with different pathogens in the serum of Orcinus orca
In recent years, concern has grown about emerging pathogens in the sea, which have caused epizootics and reduced in number some marine mammal populations. This project’s objective is the fast and reliable detection of pathogens with significant negative potential for cetaceans. Diagnostic kits are being developed in order to detect the presence of specific antibodies for the selected pathogens.
