Study Led by PVM Researchers Looks at If or How Service Dogs Help Children with Autism

Friday, September 27th, 2019 - As the number of children being diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder continues to rise, so does the demand for a popular treatment – service dogs. Yet, even though the number of service dogs being provided for children with autism is growing, there is a lack of scientific evidence on whether, or how, these dogs help. In addition, minimal research has explored how these dogs may help parents – who often face significant stress and challenges of their own. A group of Purdue Veterinary Medicine researchers is launching a new study this fall to find out.

CPB Faculty Member Pursues New Research on Antibiotic-resistant Infections

Friday, July 12th, 2019 - With antimicrobial resistance on the rise, many infections once easily treated are becoming fatal. Vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) is to blame for more than 5% of all deaths attributed to antibiotic-resistant infection in the U.S., second only to MRSA. Led by Dr. Mohamed Seleem, professor of microbiology in Purdue Veterinary Medicine’s Department of Comparative Pathobiology, researchers now are exploring whether they could repurpose some drugs, which have already been approved by the FDA, to treat the infection.
