Self-introduction
My research aims to prevent mastitis in dairy cows. I found that various antimicrobial components are synthesized in different sites of udder and that they cooperatively remove pathogens. I proposed method decreasing frequency of milking for new mastitis treatment. I elucidated that mastitis can be caused by not only viable bacteria but also bacterial components translocated from other organs.
