World Vaccine Europe 2019
Viroclinics will shed light on the topic: “The Ferret As An Animal Model To Study Respiratory Syncytial Virus Infection, Transmission And Countermeasures” on Day 2 of the conference [Oct 30th, at 10:05]. We will discuss the following topics:
- Demonstration of efficient transmission of human respiratory syncytial virus (HRSV) fromimmunocompromised ferrets to both immunocompromised and immunocompetent ferrets.
- Research findings were collected by applying several assays including Sequencing, PCR, Virus Culture/Titration. Furthermore, histo pathological changes of respiratory tissues from donor and contact ferrets were demonstrated by standard and immunohistochemistry.
- A high transmission rate of HRSV was found and more …
We are looking forward to sharing our latest insights with you during World Vaccine Europe 2019
