Project: Elimination of the Aujeszky's disease virus in the Flemish pig population by means of a combined intranasal intramuscular vaccination on closed pig farms.
- project duration
- 01-MAY-96 – 31-DEC-99
- In this project, it will be examined to what degree an alternative vaccination approach will be able to reduce transmission of Aujeszky's disease virus (ADV) in fattening pigs. The approach consists of an intranasal vaccination with a gE-gI- ADV strain at 4 weeks of age followed by an intramuscular vaccination with the attenuated Bartha strain (o/w) at 10 weeks. The efficacy will be tested both under e xperimental and field conditions.
