Abstract

Competitive-ELISA (c-ELISA) is the most widely used serological test for the detection of Bluetongue virus (BTV) viral protein 7 (VP7) antibodies (Ab). However, these BTV c-ELISAs cannot to distinguish between IgG and IgM. IgM Ab are generated shortly after the primary immune response against an...

Abstract

Bluetongue virus (BTV) is an economically important arbovirus of ruminants that is transmitted by Culicoides spp. biting midges. BTV infection of ruminants results in a high viraemia, suggesting that repeated sharing of needles between animals could result in its iatrogenic transmission. Studies...

Abstract

Bluetongue virus serotype 8 (BTV-8) was responsible for a large outbreak among European ruminant populations in 2006-2009. In spring 2008, a massive vaccination campaign was undertaken, leading to the progressive disappearance of the virus. During surveillance programmes in Western Europe in...

Abstract

During both human and animal vaccine development phases, animal testing is necessary to demonstrate vaccine efficacy. Since the number of antigen candidates for testing is usually large when developing a potential vaccine, it is too costly, time consuming and would involve higher risks to carry out ...

Abstract

This study aimed to evaluate the use of routinely collected reproductive and milk production data for the early detection of emerging vector-borne diseases in cattle in the Netherlands and the Flanders region of Belgium (i.e., the northern part of Belgium). Prospective space-time cluster analyses...

Abstract

Bluetongue is an infectious disease caused by bluetongue virus (BTV), which affects sheep, goat, cattle and certain wild ruminants. However severe clinical signs are usually seen with significant mortality in sheep than cattle and goat. To date, comparative studies on innate immune responses of...

Abstract

After bluetongue (BT) appeared in northern Europe in August 2006 entomological studies were implemented in all five affected Member States (MSs) to establish which species of Culicoides had acted as vectors. The findings can be summarised as follows: (i) C. imicola the principal southern...

Abstract

Of 16 cows inoculated i/m with INFECTIOUS BOVINE RHINOTRACHEITIS virus at various stages of pregnancy, only ten calved normally; two of three aborted foetuses were deformed and three calves were still-born. The virus was recovered from vaginal swabs for up to 271 days after inoculation, and from...

Abstract

I. Recently bluetongue has shown a tendency to spread from Africa to other parts of the world. Because the disease was insect-borne and because ruminants may harbour the virus for a long time, control was difficult and the spread was likely to continue.
Many strains of virus have been found and it...

Abstract

The complement-fixation test used at Onderstepoort was compared with that used at Animal Disease Research Institute at Hull, Quebec (ADRI) on infected calf and sheep serum. In the first method, the tests are incubated at 37°C for 90 min. and the test serum samples are inactivated at 53 °C; whereas...
