  • The cause of IBD has been found!!!

    [MENTION=5954]PrimaReptilia[/MENTION] Don posted this on FB this morning. This is huge. I know U of Florida has also been working towards this! This is a definitive step towards a cure/vaccine!

      Fascinating read. Hopefully finding the root cause will lead to some sort of treatment or a cure. I also find it interesting that they sequenced the boa genome, so maybe that will lead to some new insights.

      Here's the link to the full paper: Identification, Characterization, and In Vitro Culture of Highly Divergent Arenaviruses from Boa Constrictors and Annulated Tree Boas: Candidate Etiological Agents for Snake Inclusion Body Disease

            Perhaps, but this is the first I've seen it released wide.

              I want to say that I have seen the initial article before, but this is the first that I have seen the release of the full paper.

              Excellent and informative reading material.

                This is exciting, hopefully they will be able to come up with a cure/vaccination or something so we can do away IBD.

                    Yes, this is a release of all the info. I did see this post about this 3 years ago but it was not very in depth, Same post actually. I believe they updated it and added information.
