Dr. Ling Jin (OSU Carlson College of Veterinary Medicine) is conducting studies to investigate a treatment against Koi Herpes Virus reactivation.  KHV is a virus tht infects ornamental koi and common carp worldwide.  Like most herpesvirus infections, there is currently no cure for KHV.  Infected fish can show gill lesions, sunken eyes, or a notched nose.  Research is being conducted to discover drugs or treatments that can reduce or stop KHV reactivation and save show or pet koi.  Currently, the Jin lab is investigating the histone demethylase inhibitor (ML 324) as a drug against KHV reactivation from latency in both in vitro and in vivo studies.  In preparation.
