The YaSheng Group is planning three new products: a vaccine for foot-and-mouth-disease peptides, genetically engineered animal feed and a testing kit for use by governmental Customs agencies and the International livestock-trading industry.
Last August, YaSheng Group reported that its research and development team had mastered a gene-cloning process that allows the creation of fortified cells that combat foot-and-mouth disease. Scientists at the company also developed a cost-effective, easy-to-use, technique to test for FMD on either live or dead animals.
Design and development plans are in progress for the 100,000-square-foot facility. The headquarters and sales department will be located in
YaSheng Group first plans to set up the manufacturing and high-yield production of a foot-and-mouth disease synthetic peptide vaccine. Research of foot-and-mouth synthetic peptide vaccine is still in the initial stages in
The second phase is to produce transgenic crops to use in feed to create an oral foot-and-mouth synthetic peptide vaccine. These transgenic crops include clover, livestock grass, lettuce, alfalfa and other animal feed additives.
The third is a kit for domestic and overseas trading and governmental customs uses in testing for foot-and-mouth disease. This testing kit will also be cost-effective and allow the process of testing to be simplified and applied in remote areas.
YaSheng has obtained two patents related to this project with a third in its final stages of approval.
