Theodore H. Elsasser, Animal Growth and Development Award

Sponsored by DSM Nutritional Products, Inc.

Dr. Ted Elsasser is a pioneer in the development of models of disease stress that characterized the impact on the metabolic and endocrine axis and differentiating the effects of decreased feed intake from the further impact of the mediators of the proinflammatory process. His laboratory is at present the major leading research lab identifying biomarkers of proinflammatory stress based on the generation of specific tyrosine nitrations in proteins towards the development of intervention strategies to limit the disease complications of reactive nitrogen products like peroxynitrite as generated from an excess nitric oxide and superoxide anion production that impair muscle energetic s and the capacity for growth.
