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].

Using Genomics To Identify Genes Resistant To PRRS

Genetics of Host Resistance to PRRS and PCV2Genetics of Host Resistance to PRRS and PCV2 Dr. Jack Dekkers, Iowa State University, presents information around the genetics of host resistance to Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus (PRRSv) and Porcine Circovirus Type 2 (PCV2). Dr. Dekkers presents data and research to use genomics to identify genes / genomic regions associated with resistance / susceptibility to PRRS virus infection. Some take aways: Vaccination-co-infection design is good model for PCVAD; and PRRS and PCV2b viremia controlled by different genomic regions with versus without vaccination [video].
