Study identifies possible factor in newborn foals being prone to lung infections

Researchers, including Brett Phinney, Director of the UC Davis Proteomics Core, have found that newborn foals have lower levels of immune-related proteins in their lung lavage fluid compared to older foals and adult horses. The study paves the way for further investigation into the specific roles of these proteins in protecting neonatal lungs, offering valuable insights into equine health.
