The present study aimed to develop an effective and efficient vaccine to protect rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) against IHNV infection. Administered via the immersion route, a live vector vaccine containing the regions of the IHNV glycoprotein (G) induced immune responses in ra...

In this study, a cspA1 knock-down strain was constructed and tested in Epinephelus coioides to observe the changes in virulence and evaluate its potential as an attenuated live vaccine. The results showed that the cspA1 knock-down strain caused a significant reduction in the ability of biofilm formation, motility, adhesion and virulence. E. coioides vaccinated with cspA1 knock-down strain were more tolerant of the infection by wild-type P. plecoglossicida. The relative percent survival value of E. coioides vaccinated with cspA1 knock-down strain reached 80% after challenging with wild-type P. plecoglossicida. In the meanwh...

As many low-income countries begin to reach the threshold at which countries transition from Gavi support to self-financing (3-year average gross national income per capita of US$1580), they will need to consider whether to continue pneumo...
