Prevalence of antibodies against foot-and-mouth disease virus-infection-associated antigen (VIA) in cattle of the Paraguayan Chaco
[Introduction] The present work evaluates the usefulness of the VIA test in detecting past FMDV infections in large cattle populations.
Foot-and-mouth disease and influenza-contrasts and parallels
The present discussion will be limited to features affecting the epidemiology and control of the two diseases with special attention to the lessons to be learnt from comparative data.
The effect of merthiolate on the inmunogenicity of foot-and-mouth disease virus antigens
Merthiolate is commonly used as a preservative in commercial inactivated foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) vaccines. However, experiments with inactivated poliomyelitis vaccines have shown that degradation products of merthiolate ...
Immune response of adult cattle vaccinated with oil adjuvanted foot-and-mouth disease vacines
[Introduction] In the present work the immune response of a group of cows under controlled field conditions was studied. Two vaccination schemes of oil adjuvanted vaccination were tested in order to establish the most ...
Vaccines against foot-and-mouth disease in virus produced in cell cultures with bovine serum treated with polyethyeneglycol (PEG)
Barteling (4) described the use of serum from cattle vaccinated against foot-and-mouth disease (FMD), from which antibodies and other factors which inhibit the replication of virus had been removed by precipitation with ...
Plaque reduction neutralization test for the assay of antibodies against foot-and-mouth disease: brief report
The plaque reduction neutralization (PRN) test for the study of foot-and-mouth disease was described by McVicar et al. (4). They used secondary bovine kidney cell cultures grown for 6 days in disposable plastic plates and ...
Serologycal survey of foot-and-mouth disease in sheep in the Central Valley of Cochabamba, Bolivia
[Summary] A serological survey in the south of the central valley of Cochbamba, Bolivia, showed a high percentage of subclinical infection of foot-and-mouth disease in a sheep population kept in close contact with cattle ...
Foot-and-mouth disease: evaluation of mouse protection test results in relation to cattle immunity
[Introduction] This paper establishes a mre quantitative relationship between the resistance of cattle upon exposure to FMD virus and the results of the MPI than was possible with thw limited data of Cunha et al (2). ...
Oil adjuvanted vaccine: immunological coverage of representative strains of foot-and-mouth disease type A virus in South America
This report shows the results of a cross-immunity test in cattle, using representative field samples as well as those used in vaccine production in South America.
Foot-and-Mouth disease vaccines. I. Comparison of vaccines prepared from virus inactivated with formalin and adsorbed on aluminum hydroxide gel with saponin and virus inactivated with acetylethyleneimine and emulsified with incomplete Freund’s adjuvant
[Introduction] A series of cooperative studies by PIADC and the Pan American Foot-and-Mouth Disease Center (PAFMDC) was undertaken in the isolation units at PAFMDC in Rio de Janeiro in an effort to determine the value of ...
