How Is Your Biosurveillance?

Evolution of BiosurveillanceEvolution of Biosurveillance Drs. Jeff Zimmerman & Rodger Main, Iowa State University, look at the evolution of biosurveillance. Drs. Zimmerman & Main both state there needs to be data to help support multiple types of surveillance. Today the swine ecosystem has an unprecedented opportunity to create effective surveillance systems [video].

Can DNA Shuffling Offer Path To PRRSv Vaccine?

Designing PRRSV Vaccines for Heterologous ProtectionDesigning PRRSV Vaccines for Heterologous Protection Dr. X.J. Meng, VA-MD College of Veterinary Medicine, Virginia Tech, looks at designing Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus (PRRSv) vaccine for heterologous protection. Dr. Meng states that PRRS remains a major problem to the global swine industry. Dr. Meng also mentions there is an emergence of new and more virulent PRRSv strains, like “porcine high fever disease” caused by a highly pathogenic PRRSv. A conclusion from developing a PRRSv vaccine: DNA shuffling offers an opportunity for rational design of PRRSv MLV vaccines that confer heterologous protection [video].
