Development of Injectable and Oral Contraceptive Technologies and Their Assessment for Wildlife Population and Disease Management
PROJECT GOALS: To develop injectable and oral contraceptives to manage overabundant wildlife populations and reduce the spread of zoonotic diseases.
Objective 1: Develop oral and nasal delivery systems for GnRH reproductive inhibitors.
Objective 2: Develop and improve rapid GnRH antibody assays.
Objective 3: Conduct research to adapt and incorporate GonaCon into wildlife disease control methods.
Objective 4: Reduce injection site reactions of GonaCon
Objective 5: Determine field efficacy of GonaCon in wildlife species.
Objective 6: Determine the effect of health status on the immunological response to GonaCon.
Objective 7: Develop methods to minimize nontarget and secondary risks associated with DiazaCon.
Objective 8: Develop spatially explicit models to determine constraints on use of reproductive control methods for targeted wildlife population managment.
Objective 9: Identify and develop new compounds as potential oral wildlife contraceptives.
