Abstract

Vaccination programs for the control of bluetongue (BT) in ruminants have limitations due to difficulties in differentiating infected from vaccinated animals (DIVA). To overcome this problem a DIVA test that looks at a differential immune response to bluetongue virus (BTV) non-structural protein 3...
