MLA: Novel pain relief pour-on treatment for cattle – research/licensing opportunity
- Animal health companies interested in further developing and commercialising novel pain relief pour-on treatment for cattle.
Good pain management solutions are crucial for the future of the livestock industry. With a growing focus on sustainability of livestock production systems, both consumers and producers are looking for effective approaches for livestock pain control. Animal welfare concern has now risen to third place in consumer buying decisions, just behind price and quality. Consumers want to know that the animals their products derive from have been treated humanely. Pain relief products that are economical, easy to administer, convenient, compliant, and efficacious are required to assist with performance of animal husbandry procedures.
A novel transdermal formulation containing a registered nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug has been developed to relieve pain and maintain the welfare of cattle and potentially other animals. The new cost-effective pour-on treatment delivers effective pain control, while alleviating issues with oral analgesic delivery and needle stick injuries.
MLA Donor Company and University of Queensland are now seeking interested partners to further develop and commercialise the novel pain relief pour-on treatment for the Australian beef industry MLA Donor Company may co-invest with the successful partner to progress the product (any application will be subject to the normal MDC approval process).
Initial cattle trials were successfully completed, and provisional patent applications have been submitted at National Phase (Australia). Initial trials found longer duration of efficacy, compared to intramuscular administration.
Further development may include formulation refinement, techno-economic assessments, process design, field testing and registration/regulatory plan.
