DUBLIN, April 22, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Jain PharmaBiotech’s Animal Biotechnology – Technologies, Markets and Companies report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.
This report describes and evaluates animal biotechnology and its application in veterinary medicine and pharmacy, as well as the improvement of food production.
Knowledge of animal genetics is important in applying biotechnology to treating genetic disorders and improving animal husbandry. Genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics are also used in animal biotechnology.
Transgenic technologies are used to improve milk production and meat in farm animals and to model human diseases. Transgenic animals are used to make proteins for medical use in humans. Biotechnology is used to facilitate xenotransplantation from animals to humans. Genetic engineering is performed on farm animals, and nuclear transfer technology has become an important and preferred method for animal cloning. In vitro meat production by culture is discussed
Biotechnology has potential applications in the treatment of various animal diseases such as foot and mouth disease, classic swine fever, avian flu and bovine spongiform encephalopathy. The main biotechnology-based products consist of vaccines, especially genetically modified or DNA vaccines.
Gene therapy for diseases in pets is a rapidly developing area because many of the technologies used in human clinical trials were developed in animals, and many of the diseases in cats and dogs are similar to those in humans. The RNA interference technology is currently applied research in veterinary medicine
Molecular diagnosis occupies an important place in veterinary practice. The polymerase chain reaction and its modifications are believed to be important. Fluorescence in situ hybridization and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays are also widely used. Newer biochip-based technologies and biosensors are also finding their way into veterinary diagnostics.
Biotechnology products are approved by the FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine. Regulatory issues relevant to animal biotechnology are described.
Approximately 81 companies involved in animal biotechnology have been identified and they are featured in the report. This is a mix of animal health companies and biotechnology companies.
