Researchers make racehorses fertile

nceived for several cycles, some for years. When dormant streptococci were activated, the mares were treated and bred in the following cycle," Morten Rnn Petersen says.

Hagyard veterinarian Kristina Lu described the discovery as "an important step forward".

"At the end of the day it's an important diagnostic tool because it makes the bacteria grow which means it will definitely play an important role in fertility treatments," she adds.

Facts: Exclusive customers

The high success rate proved so encouraging that the hospital now has taken on the role of selling Bactivate in the US, while the researchers new company, 'Bojesen & Petersen Biotech', will produce it. Bactivate is developed for an exclusive group of customers and will initially be sold to treat some of the world's most valuable thoroughbreds. The best race horses can earn millions of dollars in prize money for their owners who can earn even more by breeding them.

Bactivate needs to be approved by the Danish Medicines Agency before it can be sold in Denmark. Copenhagen Spin-Outs at University of Copenhagen is helping the scientists develop their business.
