Abstract
The equine herpesviruses (EHVs) are ubiquitous pathogens in equine populations worldwide. They establish a lifelong latent infection, which ensures the survival of herpesviruses in equine populations. The currently available modified live and inactivated products of EHV-1 and EHV-4 vaccines are not reliably providing protection against infection. A better understanding of the epidemiology of EHV infections in natural outbreaks is particularly important to formulate an effective intervention strategy. However, many data gaps exist and more investigation needs to be done. It is very well known that the respiratory mucosal epithelium is the primary site of EHV-1 replication. However, EHV-1 infection in the vaginal mucosa is largely unknown. Moreover, information regarding the pathogenesis of EHV-3 in the nasal and vaginal mucosa is limited.
