, the tissue samples, collected from parotid salivary gland of buffalo foetuses, were thoroughly washed in phosphate buffer saline solution (pH 7.
Professor Dr Habil Ulrich Wernery, the Scientific Director of CVRL
said, "One of our goals is to provide permanent treatment solutions for veterinary related diseases.
