AbstractNewcastle disease virus (NDV) has a wide avian host range and a high degree of genetic variability, and virulent strains cause Newcastle disease (ND), a worldwide concern for poultry health. Although NDV has been studied in Nigeria, genetic information about the viruses involved in the endemicity of the disease and the transmission that likely occurs at the poultry-wildlife interface is still largely incomplete. Next-generation and Sanger sequencing was performed to provide complete (n = 73) and partial genomic sequence data (n = 38) for NDV isolates collected from domestic and wild birds in Nigeria during 2002-201...

AbstractEighteen canine distemper virus (CDV) isolates were obtained from clinical samples in Henan province, China, between 2012 and 2016. These viruses could not be recognized by 1A4, a monoclonal antibody specific for the H protein of CDV vaccine strains. The complete haemagglutinin (H) genes of all 18 isolates were sequenced, and phylogenetic analysis showed that they segregated into two clusters within the Asia-1 genotype. Moreover, the H genes of four viruses were found to lack a potential N-glycosylation site at position 309, which is the most conserved site within the Asia-1 genotype of CDV, and a novel potential N...

AbstractThe complete nucleotide sequence of the viral protein 2 (VP2) ORF was determined for 26 Vietnamese infectious bursal disease isolates collected from clinical outbreaks in vaccinated flocks from 1987 to 2018 and two commercial vaccine specimens. These sequences were compared for molecular classification with 42 reference strains representing all four main classes of serotype 1, including very virulent (vvIBDV), classical (cvIBDV), antigenic variant (avIBDV) and attenuated (atIBDV) strains, and serotype 2 strains. Amino acids at nine key positions in the VP2-HVR in 20 Vietnamese isolates, A222, I242, Q253, I256, D279...

[Dalsan Radio] Somalia has just launched one of Africa's largest immunization campaigns using oral cholera vaccines (OCV). The campaign, which runs from 22 to 28 June 2019 in high-risk areas of Somalia, will vaccinate more than 650 000 people aged one year and above to eliminate the risk of the disease among vulnerable populations and to prevent recurring cholera outbreaks in the country.
