Institute of Animal Biology NAAS,
38 V. Stus, str., Lviv, 79034, Ukraine

The Laboratory of molecular biology and clinical biochemistry was established with the foundation of Scientific Production Center (SPC) for the study of prion infections in 2001. SPC for the study of prion infections was founded by orders of the Ukrainian Academy of Agrarian Sciences and the State Department of Veterinary Medicine of Ukraine. Scientists of the laboratory provide scientific support of the livestock products production based on studies of animal metabolism peculiarities according to the norms and internal pathology, study of the mechanisms of prion infection development, biological aspects and application of cell culture techniques in new veterinary drug discovery, development of nanocarriers with adjuvant properties, physiological and biochemical processes in semen. The conducted researches allow an improvement of the production profitability, livestock safety, reproductive capacity and live weight gain. For the reduction of the cost of livestock production the laboratory offers advanced diagnostic tests, effective measures for the treatment and prevention of metabolic diseases of high yielding cows, new generation tools for the development of vaccines and drugs, methods of treatment and prevention of BSE, methods for assessing and normalizing metabolic processes in ejaculate to increase the fertility of sperm.
