Dr. Cara Mitchell’s residency research project manuscript has been accepted to JAALAS. Titled “Evaluation of Pain and Distress and Therapeutic Interventions for Rectal Prolapse in Mice to Reduce Early Study Removal”, it analyzes the results from her research year project which showed that rectal prolapse does not cause distress in mice and that treatment is not necessary. This project changed our IACUC recommendation from euthanasia to monitoring of the condition.
