Open Access research which pushes advances in bionanotechnology

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) , based within the Faculty of Science.

SIPBS is a major research centre in Scotland focusing on 'new medicines', 'better medicines' and 'better use of medicines'. This includes the exploration of nanoparticles and nanomedicines within the wider research agenda of bionanotechnology, in which the tools of nanotechnology are applied to solve biological problems. At SIPBS multidisciplinary approaches are also pursued to improve bioscience understanding of novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions and the investigation, development and manufacture of drug substances and products.

Abstract

Response to follow-up letter from Gallagher and colleagues. Gallagher and colleagues emphasise the magnitude of the cattle tuberculosis ( TB) problem (a concern we share) and assert their view that badger culling offers the obvious solution. Their basis seems to be their ‘many years of practical experience’, coupled with ‘opinion’ and anecdotal comments from contexts far removed from the current situation in south-west England, rather than scientific evidence on which the veterinary profession, as a science-based discipline, should insist. The position of the Independent Scientific Group on Cattle TB ( ISG), by contrast, derives from the robust statistical results of a scientifically designed, rigorously implemented culling trial.
