New Publication on SAA in Dolphins

Check out the current issue of Aquatic Mammals for an interesting study of serum amyloid A (SAA) expression in dolphins during and after uncomplicated pregnancy. This was a collaborative study with the University of Florida, SeaWorld, and the University of Miami. The study reported elevated levels during late pregnancy and in the early post partum period.

Not only does this reflect new information on the inflammatory changes associated with pregnancy in this species but it also provides valuable clinical information that aids in clinicians interpreting SAA levels in pregnant dolphins.

Congratulations to Dr. Sarah Miller for this excellent publication.
