Authors: Katsi V, Antoniou CK, Manolakou P, Toutouzas K, Tousoulis D Abstract Evidence suggests a crucial role for vaccines in cardiovascular disease, mediated not only by disease prevention but also by immunomodulatory effects. In the present review, it will be attempted to briefly present the effects of pathogens and vaccines on the cardiovascular system, as well as potential mechanisms for development of vaccines against cardiovascular disease per se. Current epidemiological evidence regarding vaccine effectiveness in different categories of heart disease will be discussed, as well as current international guide...

This study was carried out to assess post-vaccination herd immunity against PPR and inter-vaccination population turnover in small ruminant flocks in Metema district, Northwest Ethiopia where frequent PPR outbreaks occur despite regular vaccination. A total of 412 serum samples were collected from selected small ruminants in 72 flocks (average flock size of 33.4 and standard deviation of 30) above three months of age in three kebeles immediately before a vaccination program. One month after the vaccination using freeze dried live attenuated vaccine, 359 serum samples were collected from randomly selected small ruminants in...

The objective of the present study was to identify risk factors leading to the development of clinical CMS, using data provided from the salmon producers. Daily production data from individual fishgroups in more than 120 salmon farms along the coast of Norway from fish put to sea in 2012-2014 was collected. The data included cause-specific mortalities, which was used to identify outbreaks of CMS and risk factors for disease.A model for describing the daily probability of outbreak of CMS in each fishgroup was developed. The model was run to find the most likely value for each of the parameters, given the observed outbreak d...
