The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine (FVM) University of Nairobi (Kenya) and FVM Yamaguchi University (Japan) held a joint meeting to discuss on establishment of Exchange programme for postgraduate Veterinary Students from the two universities. Professors Daisuke Hayasaka, Takishi Shimizi and Koichi Sato (from Japan); Professors J.D. Mande (Dean Faculty of Vet. Medicine), James Nguhiu Mwangi (Chairman-Clinical Studies), William Ogara, Dr. Daniel Senerwa (Ag. Chairman PHPT), FVM (UoN) staff members and Veterinary students were in attendance.
Students from the Department of Veterinary Anatomy and Physiology had the opportunity to conduct extensive practical experiments in Toxicity studies on Paragon Insecticidal spray formulation.
Toxicity studies in the animal models are done to determine the dose level recommended for the treatment of disease. Toxicity testing is paramount in the screening of newly developed drugs before it can be used on animals.
