prevents pregnancy or oocyte fertilization by immunological mechanisms (1-3).
This led to the choice to seek to control deer through immunocontraception
, using the animal's own immune system to prevent it from fertilizing offspring.
AWI strongly endorses, as it has for years, the NAS recommendation that immunocontraception
be used as a principal tool to humanely reduce wild horse and burro population growth rates where and when necessary.
of white-tailed deer with GnRH vaccine.
One approach that could potentially target CATSPER1 is immunocontraception
where antibodies are developed that bind to a targeted protein and block its function.
While many ideas regarding male contraception are being investigated, the researchers say that one approach that may potentially target CATSPER1 is immunocontraception
, where antibodies are developed that bind to a targeted protein and block its function.
Findings from the latest research on deer population control are out and surprise of surprises, immunocontraception
(birth control) still doesn't work.
This wild animals are protected from direct human intrusion, and their natural herd behavior studied by scientists; at the same time, circumscribed "wilderness management" involving genetic testing and immunocontraception
is necessary to prevent the herd from overgrazing its own food supply.
It states that a habitat that is more desirable to reds than greys should be maintained and possibly immunocontraception
to reduce greys breeding.
But most immunocontraception
experiments in animals have attempted to prompt antisperm immune reactions in females, a method that hasn't worked very well.
The wild horse population on Assateague Island, off Maryland, is controlled entirely with immunocontraception
Translocation and immunocontraception
have proven largely ineffective and very costly.
