Researchers in Abu Dhabi have made a scientific breakthrough by implanting living cells from camel embryos for the first time.

Kidney, liver and muscle tissue cells from embryos of a group of camels were successfully cultured in the laboratories of the Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Safety Authority (ADAFSA).

This achievement supports the diagnosis of camel-related viral diseases and contributes to the production of proteins and vaccines.

It also allows for more detailed study of camel tissues and their interactions with drugs, antivirals and other chemicals.

ADAFSA laboratories, represented by the Collaborating Center for Camel Diseases, are accredited by the World Organization for Animal Health (WOAH).

It is a specialist center for camel diseases, providing advanced diagnostic, research and training services in collaboration with leading international institutions in this field.

In May 2022, WOAH officially accredited the Center as the designated scientific arm for all matters related to camel diseases in the Middle East.
