Massasauga Rattlesnake SFD Treatment

     We’ve begun a limited treatment trial of snake fungal disease (SFD) with massasauga rattlesnakes, lead by Matt Allender at the Prairie Research Institute. In the photo below, Petri plates of induced cells of Rhodococcus rhodochrous DAP 96253 were placed in the shared airspace of the infected rattlesnake. We’ll release more information as it becomes available.
