Abstract

One of the most severe European rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) pathogens is myxoma virus (MYXV), a rabbit-specific leporipoxvirus that causes the highly lethal disease myxomatosis. Other leporid genera, Sylvilagus and Lepus, encompass species with variable susceptibilities to MYXV, but these do not ...

Abstract

A 7-year-old domestic rabbit presented for an enlarging ventral perilimbal mass OS. Keratectomy was performed to remove the mass. A diagnosis of Shope fibroma virus keratitis was confirmed based on signalment, clinical signs, histologic evaluation and virus isolation. Progression of bilateral...

Abstract

The aim of this paper was to present vaccines against infectious myxomatosis of rabbits. Myxomatosis, highly infectious generalized disease of European rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus), is caused by myxoma virus (MV), the poxvirus from Leporipoxvirus genus. It can be mosquito or flea or contact...

Abstract

A short review of the discovery of myxomatosis by Sanarelli in 1895, and of history of the introduction of the disease into nature in Australia since 1950, and in Europe since 1952, using the Lausanne strain from Brazil. Further, the production and use of vaccines was discussed, starting with an...

Abstract

Shope fibroma virus (SFV) is one of the few poxviruses that induce cutaneous tumours, whereas myxoma virus, a closely related leporipoxvirus, does not. However, both have a virally encoded homologue of the epidermal growth factor (namely SFGF and MGF, respectively) that is considered to be crucial...

Abstract

Vaccination is the best way to control myxomatosis in both pet and production rabbits. Two types of myxomatosis vaccines are commercially available, namely, a vaccine prepared from the Shope fibroma virus (SFV) and one prepared from an attenuated myxoma virus (MV) strain, e.g., 8033. The first one...

Abstract

We have developed a novel ex vivo system for the rapid one-step targeted modification of large eucaryotic DNA sequences. The highly recombinant environment resulting from infection of rabbit cornea cells with the Shope fibroma virus was exploited to mediate precise modifications of the complete...

Abstract

Naturally occurring viral infections of the European rabbit are reviewed. Viruses mentioned include myxomatosis, Shope rabbit fibroma virus, herpesvirus infections, papillomatosis, rotavirus, coronavirus and calicivirus. Epidemiology, pathology, symptoms, diagnosis and prophylaxis of the viruses...

Abstract

The ability of two related viruses-Shope fibroma virus (SFV) and malignant rabbit fibroma virus (MV)-to induce virus-specific immune responses in lymphocytes of recipient animals was studied. SFV produces a benign local tumour which regresses in 12-14 days. Using an assay for virus-induced...
